Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "men are what their mothers made them." My biggest cheers and thank you to Marlene this special birthday year... is for raising the man that I call my husband. She instilled within him a strong value set, loving demeanor, and abundant family loyalty. She also passed along her infectious laugh :) And it goes without saying, that her greatest accomplishments are her family and a life rich in love, friendship, and faith. One day, when Lee and I start a family, I can only hope to be even half the mother that she is to her three boys.
Soooo....we did what we thought any real over-the-top celebration would entail;)
*a Four Seasons massage!
*mani-pedis with the girls!
*an iPad, luggage, wallet and more!
*a limo to and from...(!)
*a full on steak and wine and dessert feast at Barclay Prime!
Happy birthday, Marlene! We love you so much.
