Happy Mother's Day

To all the mothers out there, I hope you have a wonderful day.  I know my mom is -- the six words I used to describe her for The New York Times' "momoirs" were briefly on the homepage this morning, take a look:

I described her as having a "sailor's mouth, baker's touch, lion's heart." And it's all true. If you've ever spent time with me you know I curse like a sailor, too, and I have her to blame for that :). I unfortunately didn't acquire her ability to bake and I'm still always learning from her about how to be selfless and giving.

My mom is amazing. Happy Mother's Day to her. LOVE YOU, MOM. You can follow her on Twitter.
