This is my mum:
She is very old.
She’s brilliant, and beautiful, and utterly fab, and I love her more than can be properly communicated on ye Olde Rant and Roll.
And it’s her birthday!
As I will be seeing her in exactly two weeks, when the family descends upon New York for my sister’s wedding festivities, I didn’t send her card in the mail (plus Canada post is notoriously slow).
Also, one thing to know about my momma is that she is a Buddhist, zen master extraordinaire, so in her quest to reach nirvana she has shunned all worldly possessions.
(And yet despite this fact, I cannot seem to stop buying her all the beautiful jewelry that reminds me of her.)
I’m working on it, okay?
(Just not that hard.)
However, as soon as I saw this card I KNEW that I had to purchase it:
I mean, how perfect is that?
Momma, I love you to death, and if I could buy you a lifetime supply of nothing (or, at the very least, all the salmon and salads in the world), I would.
I would in an instant.

Beautiful Post – your sister’s Wedding is fast approaching – time to CELEBRATE:) Happy Friday – Happy Weekend!
Time to celebrate indeed! I cannot wait!! x

A lifetime supply of salmon and salads…I think she’d dig it.
WHAT! That’s crazy but also awesome and somehow appropriate? My mum is salmon and salads #1 fan. :)

birthdaze should be always fun. ’cause o’ you, i’ll try to consider ram (and ewe) ifficayshuns of all berthdaze henceforth (or 5th) i write about. (just went to a werkmate’s “double nickel”). and… you guys will enjoy the heck of N.Y. ! (you DO mean NY, NY, rite?)
NY NY baby! Woot. What’s the beetle birthday? I just googled that and all I got was a ton of VW advertisements. :/
i know, i know, i have so many arcane and esoteric posts … one was about the BEATLE’s b.d. (“when i get older, losing my hair …”)
Ahhhh, got it now! PERFECT.
Happy Birthday, mom!! Funny enough, the 14th is my Ryan’s birthday, as well. Seems all the best people’s birthdays are on this date. :) So jealous of you going to New York; Ryan and I are planning a trip there in October 2014, for our anniversary. Such a great city.
That’s awesome! Birthday synergy. :) And I will let you know about all the great places we visited! x
That’s a great card — Great! Your mother is sure to treasure it.
Oh, I am sure she will. :)
