leslea has a birthday
we celebrated with a great day together. first pedicures, then a feast of a lunch at black bear diner and to finish it off- shopping! seriously... you couldn't even see the table through all our plates at lunch. we ate like queens and got each other laughing so hard we were crying and eating and loving life.
i sure do love my mama.
