Today I'm sending out buckets and buckets of Happy Birthday wishes to my mom. I wish I was there in person to take her out to the Indian buffet for lunch, but it's her own darn fault that I'm not, because she's always encouraged me to travel far and wide and believe in myself and dream big and push myself to my greatest potential and never take no for an answer, and now look where it's gotten her? (And me.)
A zillion miles away and amazed with every single moment. Thanks, Mom.
(I owe you lunch.)
