A Day for Moms

by Joanne on May 9, 2010

Happy Mother’s Day all you Mom’s out there.  And even though my mother prefers to stay miles away from any computer so she will never see this…Happy Mother’s Day, Mum


A chocolate cake


with a vanilla wash.


The first layer of filling is cannoli cream.  The second layer of filling is chocolate mouse topped with apricot glazed raspberries.  The third layer of filling is the cannoli cream repeated.


Frosted in buttercream with dark chocolate accents.  Blue sugar roses.  The side is an “edible image” blue paisley. 


I’m not a mom but I can appreciate the special day.  On second thought, I wonder if Shane got me a card?

I do have to express a very special thank you and pass along a “BIG hug” to Pam, Ted’s daughter.  She sent me a card to wish me a happy mother’s day, but more so to say how much we have become good friends. 

After I opened the card, it got me thinking about the first time I met Pam.  It was in a gym (of course!).  Her father introduced us and she had just started college as an engineering student.  What a smart cookie!   Pam is a motivator.  She has a subtle way of presenting something that gets you thinking and, before you know it, you’re a believer.   Pam is now working with people who want to make healthier adjustments in their lives.  Make sure to check out her site and read about what she’s up to.

Have a wonderful time celebrating your special day.  All you moms, you deserve the very best.

How did you celebrate Mother’s Day?  I took Shane for a walk and started working on tomorrows GIVEAWAY…stay tuned.  Do you like chocolate and peanut butter?  That’s a clue.

            I think it is awesome that you and Pam have such a great relationship! She sounds great.

            I totally expected Data to get me a card too. Or at least let me sleep in! (Steven said Data woke me up at 4:00 so I could enjoy as much of Mother’s Day as possible!)

              Thank you for your kind words of gratitude! You have helped me in so many ways, that little card could never truly express how much I appreciate you and value your friendship!
