 Happy Birthday Mama Belle!

Today is a really special day for some one whom I have never had the privilege of meeting in person, but am honored to call a friend. It is so cool how you become part of wonderful circles of friends through blogging. I have had the opportunity to learn so much from these fellow writers. Mama Belle is some one who I began to get to know a few months ago and, wow has she made me laugh! This girl is funny people! I've had some good laughs when reading her posts and learned alot from her words, but I think the thing which has kept me going back to her blog time and again is her authenticity. Y'all know that authenticity is something I am learning alot about and striving for in my own life. I perceive Mama Belle as a "what you see is what you get" kind of a gal. She is distinctively, unapologetically, her. Beautiful, full of that southern charm, a wonderful mom to her two girls, and we couldn't talk about her with out mentioning her great sense of style could we? So, to this hip and happenin' Mama, Happy Birthday and thanks for being you

Check out some of her incredible talent!

Great post. Such sweet words! I think "the eagle has landed", as they say... judging by MB's response. :)

Amazing...I can't believe she can sing that song. That's gotta be one of the hardest songs to pull off, and boy DID she!

This has been fun! I'm gonna go watch your "I See What You're Saying" video now. :-)

Well done!
