Today's post is dedicated to the greatest lady I know - my mom! Happy 50th birthday, Sus!
Here she is dancing around the house on my wedding day.
Now, a little walk down memory lane...
Here we are after I read a letter from her, right before putting on my wedding dress. Mom is always an encourager. She's a "words" person like me, and I cherish all her notes.
Just put on my veil, now it's time to head to church!
Exiting the church. She's too foxy for 50!
With her mother.

Graduation Day from Baylor
Sometimes we match accidentally.
Well, since we have the same three favorite colors (white, red, and black), this happens a little bit more than "sometimes".
Christmas Dinner at the Crowes'. Traditional English poppers are a yearly favorite, and they include paper crowns.
Visiting me in DC when I interned for Sen. Hutchison.
All-University SING weekend, last semester at Baylor.
Pi Beta Phi Moms' Day
Matt's going away party to the Marines.
Yes, the Marines. Did I mention my mother has one chicken in Haiti, and one chicken in the Marines? This woman is one tough cookie.
PS, did I mention she makes really good cookies? True story.
I love you, Mom! I hope you have the very best day! I'm sad we can't be there in person, but we'll celebrate you anyway from here!
PS - Shout out to McShan's Florist in Dallas. I was pretty skept about ordering birthday flowers for Mom from Haiti online and having it work out, but they delivered beautiful flowers (in a tea cup- how adorable is that?) for a very reasonable price, same-day delivery, during Valentine's week, no less. Sic em McShan's.
And PPS - we have another birthday kid this week. It's Ben, this Friday! Let's think of all the ways to celebrate him!
