Happy 80th Birthday, Mom!

Happy 80th Birthday, Mom!

Just about to hop in the shower and pick up my sister from the airport to celebrate our mother’s 80th birthday! It’s a miracle she’s with us. She’s a survivor of non-Hodgkins lymphoma, stroke and vascular dementia. She’s a fighter. Proud of her.

Saudi Arabia
Thanks for moving me to Saudi Arabia and teaching us respect for other cultures.
Best Sister Ever
Thanks for giving me the best sister ever!
Acropolis 1970
Thank you for traveling the world with us. Acropolis, 1970.
Cashel Ireland 1970
Best 7th birthday present ever. Cashel Ireland, 1970. So green after five years in the desert.
MA
Next two years in Cambridge, MA. Gorgeous fall colors. Snow! Free Boston Pops on the Common. Thanks for taking us to the ballet and art museums.
Palance of Fine Arts SF
Pretty sure you made those dresses! Here we visit the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, the city where you and dad met and made me.

      Although she can no longer speak or write, she seemed happy to see us for her birthday.

      Thanks, Mark! We lived overseas and traveled when we returned to the US. We moved a lot for my dad’s career.

    Happy Birthday to your Mom, Kitt!!!!

    I love the pictures, especially the Acropolis—your mother is stunning in that photo!! (I went there in 1977 with my parents) and much closer to home, The Palace of Fine Arts.

    You’re a wonderful and devoted daughter—the best “birthday/lifetime gift” your mother could ever hope for!

    Enjoy the celebration!
    XOXOXOX
    Dy
