My daughter, also my friend

We've all seen the T-shirts. posters and pillows with that sentiment on them.  I am so happy and proud to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! to DEB.  She is indeed my friend and also my daughter.

We share a love of the beach

Our traditional Mother's Day - our feet in the sand

 We also share a love of "making stuff".  Maybe art, maybe just a big mess!  We laugh at nonsense.  She is my muse, biggest fan (and I am hers), and my daughter and friend
Next week she is coming for a visit!  And her prediction will come true - at least a bit.  When she was little, maybe three years old, she would stomp her foot and say "When I'm the Mother and YOU are a little girl - - -" (fill in the blanks).  So now she tells me to clean my room, comb my hair, etc.  Just a glimpse of role reversal to come.
But - I musta' done something right to have such a fun and creative daughter.  Some say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.  But I think this one came from across the orchard and found me.
See a glimpse of who she is on her blog.
So, Deb, Have a really good day - Can't wait to see you.
