To celebrate my mom's birthday today, I'm posting this candid photo of her in a skirt and pearls, most likely playing basketball. She used to sew her own clothes, so she probably made this outfit.
It may seem like a strange choice, and I could have posted a posed shot. But I think this is a perfect example of how I view my mom: she's beautiful, creative, and a tomboy all rolled into one. She grew up with 3 brothers, so it's no surprise she was as tough as the boys.
Happy Birthday, Mom. You're one of a kind!
