Happy 50th Birthday!!!
How can I even begin to explain what in incredible Mother you are (and have been) to me?
I know you’ve been stressing out (big time!!) about turning the big 5-0 but guess what?? It’s here, and you look more beautiful and radiant than ever!! You’re a sensational woman and an inspirational Mother. You’re spice and passion for life is absolutely infectious, and your incredibly kind heart doesn’t go unnoticed. You will drop what you’re doing at a moment’s notice to help a loved one (and sometimes a complete stranger) in need (I see you do it all the time!!). You’re incredible! You’re always there for me when I need someone to talk to and bounce an idea off of, even if you’re busy doing fifty other things at once. Thank you for that. It means the world to me.
I’m so grateful for the way you raised me, and the strength, independence, passion, and elegance that you’ve instilled in me. You’ve always told me to shoot for the stars, and I’m so thankful for that… because look at where WE are today!!! I would never have thought 5 years ago that we’d be running two amazing businesses TOGETHER, and taking the baking world by storm! I’m SOO lucky to be able to call you my mother, I’d just like to say thank you!
I love our (crazy!) life together. I love being able to work with you everyday. I mean, most people would only dream to have a relationship like ours! I love sneaking away from work to go out on crazy shopping sprees with you (Oops…Sorry Ken!!), finding exciting new recipes and cooking dinner at home together, having creative business meetings at Kindfood and Kelly’s Bake Shoppe (I know…who actually likes having meetings!?!), laughing about the crazy things that happened that day (…and sometimes the crazy people, haha!), and dreaming up new cupcake ideas and recipes in our beautiful bakery. I feel so fortunate to be able to work with you every single day.
Thank you for being my best friend and the coolest person in the world. I am forever grateful of the amazing Mother Daughter bond we have. Thank you for choosing me to be your daughter. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I respect you, admire you, and adore you.
I love you immensely.
Happy 50th Birthday!!!
Love your daughter,
