Karen Stewart is Martha Stewart's twin. She can craft anything. I had the most amazing birthday parties, school projects, hand-sewn dresses and nightgowns, bows etc. (Unfortunately I did not inherit this gene). She would sing and dance and I loved it, even though I pretended to be embarrassed in front of my friends. She made EVERY birthday awesome. I felt SO special! She would make me muffins complete with candles and singing in the early morning before school. Make a special school lunch, decorate complete with balloons, serve my favorite dinner complete with a birthday cake and carefully select and hide the perfect present. She's a saint. She does everything until it's perfect and kills herself doing it. She can't say no and single-handedly takes care of the entire neighborhood and family. Most of all I love her because she's my mom and she sacrificed everything to be just that. (This is a picture of my mom taken by my dad when they were dating.)
Vhari and I have been friends since Mr. Day's Geometry class in 8th grade. We really bonded over finding cosines I guess. Since then, we've stayed close through college and then becoming mothers ourselves. She has 2 adorable girls and a fantastic husband (who I've also known since jr. high). Vhari's mom rocks, just as she said. And that picture is the bee's knees! Happy Mother's Day!
