Wednesday, August 22

From 10 years ago, a 17 year old husband. I like to call this one, "the necklace" ;)
I don't know what it was about yesterday, but I just kept thinking about you. The day I became a mother will always be one of my favorite days - 5, 10, 100 years from now - and today is that day for you. So happy birth-day :) I have some wonderful examples of womanhood and motherhood in my life, and I'm so happy that you're one of them. I just wanted you to know that you did such a good job. You raised a truly good man, and I'm so lucky that he is who he is. Thinking about my own little son, and how he's so sweet and easy-going, but feisty and curious and so beautiful and I just don't want to mess anything up, you know? I want him to be just like his dad. And I have you to thank for that. So anyway, I just wanted you to know how much we love you. And especially today ... thanks for this guy.

What a great post! Mother-in-laws everywhere just wished they had you for a daughter-in-law ;-)

In all seriousness, really nice post! It's so important to tell your mother-in-law that you appreciate her; especially for raising such an awesome man!

"The Necklace".
Hilarious. I remember when those were "all the rage". :)

My employer actually was wearing something similar the other day and I found I couldn't NOT stare at it. Yikes!

Happiest Birthday to your Darling :)

It took me a few read to figure this out, BUT I finally got it, and I love the idea! The note you wrote was really heart-felt, I'm sure your mother-in-law appreciates it so much. And I love old pictures too. Looking good 17 year old husband!

so so sweet. isnt it amazing how much life changes once you have a baby? i look at everything from a completely different perspective.

my husband also sported one of these-why did us girls find them so sexy? lol too funny. I guess I had some shell wearing jewelry in my day so I cant even give the guys a hard time. Our husbands are the same age-and I think we may be as well?

Anne said...

Happy birthday to Tyson! My husband is wearing the same type of necklace in his senior photo. Cracks me up and melts my heart at the same time!

Urban Nester said...

Those pooka shells are the best. I used to drool over boys in high school who wore them... My hubs was in the pooka club too :)

Sweet note to his mama as well.

this had to be one of the sweetest things i have ever read on any blog. i rarely comment here, because i feel funny doing so. i just quietly read your wonderful posts via my e-mail subscription. but i had to chime in today.

though i am not so creative in writing and thought as you, this reminds me of me and my husband and his mom and my son. this is precious.
