Happy Birthday to my mom, Joi, 83 years young today!

My mom is one of my favorite humans: funny, hardworking, and loving to all.

She has been a trooper since a very young age. As a teen mom, and having 10 kids - yes 10 - she has spent her life working, raising children, grandchildren, and her share of suffering with the loss of my two brothers.

Yet, my mother is resilient. She continues to love the beach, and all family-related activities. She has been there for graduations, birthdays, school plays, baby showers, weddings, and anything we need and ask from her.
