My mom at a surprise 25th wedding anniversary party in 1981
It is so wonderful to be at Fort Myers Beach celebrating your 81st birthday with you!
As we said this morning while shelling and birding along the beach, “It doesn’t get much better than this…”
Spending these days with you and Dad is so special for K and me.
You are someone I have loved so very dearly all these years and it’s a treat to get together so often and “make memories”, as you always say.
I put together this little collection of photos from the early 1980’s to present before leaving Michigan to make an extra-special card for you.
(Readers, perhaps you’ll enjoy this little glimpse into my family, as well.)
This is my blessing blog for this week–to feel so blessed to have such a wonderful mom who has enriched my life so much.
Hugs, kisses and much love,
Mom and Dad celebrate 25 years!
