Happy Birthday, Mom!

Mom\'s Birthday/Retirement Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream Frosting

Today is a mixed day for my mom.  She’s both turning another year older as well as retiring.  Although she’s been looking forward to retirement for quite some time (she resigned a year ago today!) she is sort of sad.  She said it feels as if today is similar to a viewing after a loved one passes away.  One of the definitions for retirement is, afterall, the “removal or withdrawal from service, office, or business.”  As mom moves into this new stage in her life I wish her all the best.  I know she’ll make the most of it.  Today is not your viewing, mom.  You are very much alive and have all the love and support in the world!  Enjoy this new chapter!

Above are photos of lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream frosting.  They’ll be joining mom at her retirement Open House today!
