Getting a Mother-in-Law can be a bit scary. You hear all the horror stories of how mean they can be. I hit the lottery when I got my Mother-in-Law. She is one of the greatest people I know and today is her Birthday. This lady is hip (listens to Justin Timberlake and the Red Hot Chili Peppers), smart (her second language is computer) and just super cool (her idea of a good time is going CD shopping).
She is also a mean cook. The picture above is of the amazing apple and plum butter she made a month or so ago. She bakes bread regularly…even grinding the wheat herself. She also makes grape juice every year which is pure nectar of the gods. It makes me crazy when I hear her talk about how un-crafty she is. She has even crocheted blankets for most of her family. Her crafty ability is limitless.
I think I’m the luckiest girl in the world to have wandered into a such a loving and creative family. Happy Birthday!
