Got Away

We got away.

My life is easy in these weird times, but Mistah has been working so very hard, and we were lucky enough to get away on a Get Away. 

We got Gone Away.

It was just the three of us in our (scrubbed clean and sanitized) little rental house house -- me, the Mistah, and our clorox wipes.

It was beautiful and stunning and lovely and everything we dreamed for . . . 

. . . beautiful . . . 

. . . stunning . . . 

. . . lovely . . . 

. . . and dreamy.

Oh yes . . . 

. . . We had ourselves a Time.

Looking Up

Amid all the everything, it sometimes helps to go outside -- with one's trusty Mistah in tow -- and look up at the night sky . . . 

. . . at Full Moonie . . . 

. . . at Orion . . . 

And sometimes it's enough to simply leave it at that.

The Birthday Girl

Happy Birthday to Mom! . . . 

Our Mom. She is not only incredible and fun and smart and lovely and accomplished and loyal and so very deeply supportive . . . 

. . . but also? We get to see her today.

Aren't we lucky?

Five years ago Mom's birthday celebration was One For The Ages.

What a Time we had . . . 

I mean, what a party.

This year, alas, things are a little different.

But today is today -- today! -- and we are going to celebrate Mom like crazy . . . 

. . . this Mom . . .  

. . . this woman . . .

. . . this bride . . . 

. . .  look at that bride! . . .

. . . this gorgeous girl . . . 

. . . this mother . . . 

. . . this sister . . . 

 (my personal fave) 

. . .  I know, my sisters, I know . . .    

. . . this matriarch.

We lost Dad 10 years ago. They were such a team, Mom and Dad. 
Such partners, such a united front.

But Mom has done nothing but rocked it ever since.

I think her grandbabies have helped.

Yeah, these guys.

Yep, them.

But hey. Mom wouldn't be Mom without us, now would she?

We love you, Birthday Girl.

Let's celebrate.
