Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today would have been my mama's 59th birthday. Last year on this day, we surprised her on this day with dinner at Biaggi's and three tickets (awesome seats) to see the Broadway musical "Mamma Mia!" My mom was a huge, huge ABBA fan and had been dreaming of seeing it since it came out.

I will never forget the beautiful smile on her face after I explained what the tickets were for.

Tonight, I will go and have a meal with two of my favorite people in the world: Jami and Seth. We will be eating at Biaggi's to celebrate the life of the most beautiful woman I ever met: the "Dancing Queen" and my best friend.

We will laugh a lot, cry a little, and have dessert.

Because life is too short not to.
