If I Could, I Would

Just Saturday we celebrated the birth of my twin Sisters Singer and Swimmer.  And just a few days later today, we celebrate the birth of my Gardening Mom.

Gardening Mom before kids, law school and Orange County changed her life!

Here's the thing when shopping for GM:
She has just about everything she needs (and thanks to her insanely hard work, so do the rest of us!).
She can buy things she wants, when she wants them.
And she works hard for that liberty, and to be honest I think she should treat herself more often!

But the conundrum every year is...

What do you get the woman who has everything?

And if you're me,
you get a blog post all about the things you would do for her, if you could.
And if I ever have the means to be able to do these things, you better believe I will!

So, Gardening Mom, if I could...

I would have you quit your job, and I would take care of you like you have taken care of me.

I would buy you your dream house, with a huge garden for you to spend your time designing and redesigning as the seasons and your tastes change.

I would send you to places you've never been before and to places you've loved and would love to see again.

I would take you on garden tours, home tours and musicals galore, like you have always taken me to things that interest me.

I would go on a long vacation just the two of us, so we could drink cocktails and talk about life which we don't get to do nearly as much as I'd like.

For you, Gardening Mom, I would do anything, if I could - like you have always done for me.
