(Posting so late because I was sleeping in, finishing her present, and starting to rearrange the house for new carpeting.) 

My lovely mother’s birthday is today. She retired last year and is now gardening and sewing and helping out her kids and going on vacations and generally living the dream. Here she is in Hawaii in 2007–maybe we need to go back in 2017! (And maybe my present to her next year should be some professional–and current–family photos…)
