Today is our mom's birthday. She would have been 62 today. Every year on her birthday, one yellow rose comes up in our garden, and today there are two, which is extra special. So in Dody's honour, us Bloomers are asking you to eat a yummy cupcake, or a chocolate chip muffin, or if you're on a diet, buy yourself some lovely fresh flowers for her or go for a nice walk. She would love it if you treated yourself.
And just the other day, I remembered a song that she loved so much by Jewel, and we used to sing it at the top of our lungs all together, especially when she was sick. I think she really lived by this philosophy of living a life uncommon, and I think she raised us Bloomers to live this way too. Shayna Bloomer's vintage circus wedding is truly an example of a leading a Life Uncomon - one that is untraditional, 100% personal and breaks all expectations and boundaries. Here's a clip to the song, and the main chorus mantra which I think we should all live by:
Happy Birthday Momma Original Bloomer - here's to a life uncommon!
