Happy Birthday to the World’s Best Mom

No, not me! I would never be that self-serving. I am talking about MY mom.

This weekend we celebrated a very special birthday with my mother. Through some miracle and lots of corralling of 3 generations of cats, we were able to get the entire family together. Even Danny made it – fresh off the camp bus.

A huge thank you and hugs forever to the Chef love of my life, Don, for making this meal over the top amazing. Big plug for Valentino’s on the Green (might I highly recommend EVERYTHING on the menu)

As my mom put it so eloquently in her little speech after dins, having everyone all together in one place made turning this rather strange number worth it.

Here’s to my mom, the bravest woman I know. Wishing you the best birthday ever. May you always feel the love that surrounded you tonight, and know that we are all blessed to have you in our lives.

Now, if all you readers would be so kind as to come out of the woodwork, please wish mom a happy birthday.

    Happy Birthday Mrs. Z! (I will never call you Elaine!!)

    The memories of you from our childhood are filled with smiles, laughs and love. With the exception of you having to remind us the ills of hitch-hiking!

    I will try to make you a batch of your favorite french-fried brownies 😉

    To my favorite Auntie Mrs Z….

    The one who was always there to pick me up on Long Beach Road, play with the kids on the beach, have the juciest plums in the cooler and the only milano cookies that did not melt!
    Hope your birthday was as special as you are to all of us!

    We love you,
    Ronni and Squash!

  8. Happy birthday to the perfect Mother and Grandmother. I hope this birthday is everything and more. The Levinger’s love you.
    Love, Linda
