This post is a little late but at least we celebrated her birthday on time. I always have a hard time finding birthday presents for my mom. It don’t just want to get her anything, I want it to be special and mean something. So this year I did something a little bit different. My mom is a great artist. I use to look at her sketch books from when she was younger and she was always painting something when I was little. It has been quite a while since I’ve seen her paint though, so after going to Sips n’ Strokes a few months back with a friend I knew it would be the perfect surprise for mom. I picked her and one of her friends up from their happy hour with their friends and swept them away to grab a pizza and go paint. We ate our pizza while we waited on everyone to settle in and then got to work….with a few glasses of wine along the way. I think she had a really great time and we all left with a fun Christmas painting. We celebrated with orange and blue cake the next day. 🙂
