More (Very Special) Birthdays!

It is birthday season around here! 

Today, Momma McA & Margot Z. (Grandpa Bud's lovely wife) celebrate their birthdays. These two ladies are extremely special to us & we wish we could celebrate with them today! I could not have asked for a better mother-in-law & grandmother-in-law.

Heidi (who I affectionately call "Mom") is one of the sweetest, funniest, quirkiest, most loving moms. Maybe it's because I lived by myself with her & Dad Mac last year when Matt moved to NC, but calling her "Mom" doesn't seem foreign at all. She gave me a hug when I left for work each morning, we've traveled together, made dinners together, enjoyed one too many cups of coffee (& wine) together, cried to/for one another, gone for evening walks with nonstop chitchat & made lots of sweet memories in my short stint (so far) as a McAndrew. In short, she's a keeper & I'm so thankful for her! Margot is an absolute sweetheart. Kindhearted, adventuresome, patient & unassuming, she is a wonderful partner-in-crime for Grandpa Bud! I miss these ladies like crazy...

I have officially maxxed out my photo usage on Picasa, which explains the lack of blogging in the last week, so please bear with me while I figure out how to get new photos on the blog! Luckily, I had all of our photos from our trip to California last Thanksgiving in a web album, so I could pull these funny/favorites of Mom & me in Monterrey. Unfortunately, until I have some time to iron out my technical (a.k.a. photo) difficulties here on Simply Suz, I can't upload a photo of Margot :( but I hope she knows how special & celebrated she is!
Happy Birthday, Mom & Margot! Love, Suz (& Matt, too!)


  1. I had the same problem with Picasa on my blog-- so I just bought a pro account! It is really not expensive at all, and then you can post unlimited pictures basically.

  2. thanks for the tip, emily! you use flickr, right? and it's easy to post from there?

  3. Yes, Flickr is super easy! Their pro accounts are cheap and they even have a program called Flickr Uploadr where you can just drag photos from your computer files into the program and it uploads them to Flickr automatically.

  4. Oh yeah... in that first post I meant to say, "so I just bought a Flickr pro account".... but I think you got what I meant!

  5. oh i like the flickr upload option...thanks for the tips!
