Happy Birthday Toety

happy birthday ( vintage photo of Kim Novak)
Wishing Toety a Happy Birthday today. Toet is my Mother-in-law. When I first met her, images of Kim Novak came rushing towards me. My Mother-in-law is dutch, however has lived in France for many years. Marie-Louise, (toet is her nickname) is elegant, kind and has such indredible grace - Mother of 4 children and Grandmother 7.
I hope you have a heavenly day and year ahead!

Debra,
I am only wishing I could hop across the pond and wish her Happy Birthday in person and share a slice of cake! I am truly blessed she is part of my life.

I lost my MIL 30 years ago. I still miss her. Every once in a while you encounter a force of nature. If we are lucky we get to fly in their jet stream for awhile. Glad you have your MIL and that she knows she is cherished on this day and every day.

And that's what I get for not checking the photo credits! The resemblance was uncanny....

Many happy returns of the day Totey and best wishes for the coming year.
