Yesterday I got to invade my Mother-in-Law's kitchen, dig and poke around, make a huge mess, and produce a birthday dinner for her and her Mama (who happens to have the same birthday). It struck me while I was working that there probably aren't that many MILs that would be OK with just handing their kitchen over to their daughter-in-law and walking away. Seriously, the only time she'd pop in on me was to offer me more wine.
But don't worry, I totally did the dishes before we headed back home.
So happy birthday to the ladies that have so thoroughly enveloped me into their family, and thanks for letting me feel it every day!
