happy birthday momma branch...

calenrier 24


yesterday was my mother's bday. to celebrate i hosted a family dinner at our apartment. everyone brought dishes and my sister amy helped me tend to the stove. as she put it plainly, "sometimes you just need someone to stir the pots". we had giant silver foil balloons that spelled out her signature catchphrase, "yay you" but we ran out of helium to fill up the other 25 silver balloons. and our big sister's beautiful angel food cake arrived a little wilted. it didn't matter. we all were able to sit around and laugh and eat comfort food and gooey cake. sometimes it's ok to laugh at the imperfections of party planning and just enjoy the people you love. and we love our mom a whole lot. she's our best friend and a really, really good mom.
