Today is my Mom’s birthday.
When I asked if there was anything in particular she wanted she said not really. All she wanted was a card and something to let her know we remembered and we were thinking of her.
Well Mom, your card is on its way (couldn’t find a mail box with an early enough pick up time) as are the gifts (standard shipping). So in the mean time this is my way of letting you know I did indeed remember and that Z and I are thinking of you today!
Anyone who knows my mother knows she’s an avid birdwatcher.
Birds are her thing. It’s what she does.
As a result, binoculars are a consistent accessory for her. In fact on any given day she has a pair in her car, one in my Dad’s car, a pair in the living room, the bedroom AND one by the back door of the house where her many bird feeders are.

So now I present to you a tribute to my Mom…and her binoculars. Through many travels, trips, treks and tours they are always there!

Happy Birthday Mom! May you and your binoculars have many more adventures to come!
I want to know…
What is your Mom’s “thing”? What is she known for?
