My mom's phone went off all day today with birthday greetings and texts from family, former students, longtime friends and colleagues, new acquaintances, people near and far. I wasn't at all surprised by any of this. She has a youthful energy and an unyielding commitment to people. She gives and gives without expecting anything in return. Happy birthday, Mom! I guess the next time I want to hang out with you, I'll have to take a number!

Best friends since birth. Happy birthday, MO! You have been and continue to be a source of wisdom, grace and protection. I still remember when you and your crew stood up to my school bullies for me. You still do that for me even though the bullies now are mostly figurative. Love you forever. Oh, and please tell me where you're hiding your fountain of youth serum.


Not today. Just cuz. 🌺🌾✨

Don't tell the kids there are veggies in them popsicles πŸ˜‹

Snippets of our short but sweet stay in Lake Tahoe. We ate well, slept well and enjoyed multiple conversations without having to say things like, "Hold on, baby, I'm talking to mommy/daddy." The peace and quiet was wonderful and strange. #swiperight

So grateful for this time away, just us.

Not afraid of the spotlight #swiperight 🀳🏼😎

Those awkward, first encounters when we knew we liked each other but didn't know crap about how to be in a relationship (circa 1998). Many years later... well, we're still learning 😏. It's a lot of hard work and a lot of fun. Happy anniversary to the person for whom I would spend the rest of my life hustlin' to love better πŸ’“. I've got a crush on you @trumanpq!
