We rarely post personal things here but I have to say happy birthday to my mom. She is the reason I fell in love with entertaining, flowers, design, art and these celebrations of love that we share with you every day. And she actually reads this blog, so I really wanted to tell her how much I love her! (ps- she won a 5k this morning. What a great way to celebrate your birthday!) I am so proud of you mom and wish I could be with you today.
