Happy Birthday Momma Pontillas!



Yesterday was the birthday of one the most adorable people in the world.  My mom is a single parent and I'm a single child, so growing up we just had each other.  I made the cross-country trip from Seattle to NY with her a year ago today.  She checks this blog every day for updates, leaving supportive comments but they never go through :)
She loves loves loves Filipino folk dancing and was always dancing around the house, but generally is too shy to do it in public.  It is the cutest thing you've ever seen.

Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you!
