I love a good surprise

Today is my Mama's birthday.

By the time you read this, I will have flown from New York to Alabama to surprise her speechless.
I love being in on a surprise. Especially when it's a surprise for my favorite woman in all the world.

I mean it. She's the best person I know.
If you know her, she's probably one of the best people you know, too.
I'm glad I get to celebrate her birthday with her.

Happy Birthday, Mama.
I love you so.
