Happy Birthday Mom!

So today was my mom's birthday. She is a remarkable woman with a sense of panache that dwarfs most people's. A classically trained artist and self taught gourmet cook, she can make the world of entertaining seem a breeze. As my godmother Gail says, "she can make a feast out of a beef bone and some vegetables."

Mom and I have a belief that there are three types of people: those who create events, those who attend events and those who are simply not invited. She has made a life of creating amazing memories and stylish living. She and Jim have been more than a bit peripatetic with houses all over California and even New Hampshire.

A woman of remarkable spirit, a cancer survivor and a woman of endless optimism, she is a template for the power of positive thinking. I hope that she continues to have a rich, full life as she has had all along! Happy Birthday!
