My Mom's 80th Birthday

Today is my mom's 80th birthday.  This isn't a postcard; it's a picture of her in April, in Jerez de la Frontera in southern Spain.  As my nephew said, she's least like an 80 year old of any 80 year old he knows. 

Happy Birthday, Mom!  I'm the luckiest daughter in the world to have a mom like you.


  1. Happy Birthday to your Mom. She looks beyond fabulous.

  2. Felicidades! We should all be so lucky.

  3. look at aunt dudley! never an old lady! such a smile...i love her truly.

  4. What a great photo! Love it!!

  5. she feels like dancing... yeah!
    she feels like dancing...yeah!
    and shaking those big Tio Pepe maracas...!

    dearest Mare Bear : ),
    there's a joy within your mom's heart and soul that she always so generously shares, and valiantly keeps safe from harm. i've been so blessed to have her in my life, and that you embrace so well her tenacious spirit of love.
    big love to you both, i'm sure Dudley had a fabulous birthday!

  6. I love you , Mar, so much! What fun we had in Spain--are we ready to plan another trip? I started looking at your blog again (don't know why I had sort of forgotten about it after our trip) so I just saw my b-day picture. Thanks.
