Happy Bday Maman (and thanks for aging so much more gracefully than Madonna!)

I am so proud of my Mum that I ‘ll embarrass her with a few pic to show you were we got our hot looks, our sense of humor and (some of) craziness from…

Even if I didn’t have you as my Mother, I would choose you as my friend. I am so blessed to have you, ma poulette! So are my kids who have the funkiest and sparkly GrandMa 🙂 Joyeux Anniversaire!!!

A bit more than pic can tell.. right there

      Yes, the apple never falls far from the tree… Now that I am Mum too, I realize the great work she’s done with me and my brothers, and I secretly pray for my kids to be a bit less adventurous than me. She is very precious, funny, witty and very down to earth. A real friend 🙂
