My mom's birthday was earlier this week. I thought it would be fun to send her happy birthday wishes with my music post, since I think it is the most fun! While I bet she doesn't even remember doing this, I can still remember her singing Rawhide to me and my sister when I was 8. We had just moved to Illinois and I think the context was possibly that we were all supposed to be helping with the chores by cleaning our rooms and such. Either way it made us laugh a lot, and I had never heard the song before. So it is one of those things that will always make me think of her and that moment. Happy birthday Mom, I hope this is more flattering than bizarre!
We are off to the start of a busy weekend. I will share the details next week. I hope you all have a great weekend!
