Happy Anniversary Mom and Bronson!! Right now I am sitting in a waiting room at MUSC in Charleston, SC waiting...my precious step dad (28 years today) is getting ready for open heart surgery - PLEASE keep him and my family in your prayers for the next few weeks!! My mom's favorite bird is the cardinal - thought this would be a great little gift for them! Here is a little note I found on the cardinal...

As we observe the cardinal – particularly against the backdrop of the stark winter months, we are reminded that even when things appear bleak or isolated, there is always the presence of beauty, hope, and love. Cardinals encourage us to express our brilliance and reveal our truest selves. Their radiant red is a symbol for us to recognize the gifts in our hearts that we have to give to others in love and friendship.

We LOVE you Mom and Bronson!!!!
