Funny enough she had already told me exactly what she wanted this year for her birthday a few months ago! She mentioned that she wanted some pretty blue hydrangeas for her yard :) If you knew my mother at all she LOVED gardening, even though her and I both certainly didn't have green thumbs by any means. My mother was the most selfless person I have ever known and never ever asked for anything from anyone and certainly wasn't about to ask for some extravagant gift. I'm hoping to get some hydrangeas next spring and plant them in remembrance of her last birthday wish!
I thought that I would remember her birthday on here as I started this whole blogging experience in remembrance of her. As I can't share Mitchell's and I's life experience with her via the phone, email, or in person anymore I felt that this would help substitute the loss a little and help me feel as if I was relaying our life events to her in some way :) Anyways, I'm wishing my mom a super happy early birthday and hope she's partying it up up there where she is! I miss and love you so much mamma.
