Mom's Day

My mom, Linda, was born 61 years ago today. She passed away 4 years ago, but I still like to celebrate her birthday.

I'm sure wherever she is (not far), she is crinkling her face like she would often do (and like I may or may not do), cringing that I'm posting these old pictures of her, but they're a couple of my favorites and they make me happy. So there. And besides, how cute was she?

I love this photo. She looks so young and pretty. (Plus that cushion behind her makes me smile.)

And here she is, all cute in her low ponytail, glasses, and stripey top. For some reason, I just love this one.

Happy Birthday, Mommy! To celebrate, I might have to eat some fried mochi with sugar, or drink some hot cocoa with crackers. :)
