Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my Mom's 70th birthday, a big one, I know, although you'd never know it to look at her!  I am so proud of my mom, who has always been a great inspiration to me.  She is the embodiment of kindness, creativity, loyalty, patience, wit and humor.  Today's post is dedicated to her, and is made up of a few things I know she likes.  (the photos above were taken in Spain by my dad in 1970)


  1. Happy Birthday to your mom!

  2. Happy berfday, Barbara! You're my kind of literature lovin', food fancyin', wine (something that starts with w that means knowing) woman. Aristocray with a pitch fork. Lovely etiquette with the occasional expletive.

    i hope you have a great day and have a chance to celebrate all that you are!

    much love,


  3. What a looker! Hope she had a wonderful birthday!
