I can’t begin to thank you enough for raising such an incredible man for me to call my own, but hopefully the day I planned for you will be a good start.


03Having to raise all boys must have been a real task but I’m glad that I can be that daughter you never had. Linda, you are a true inspiration and you inspire me to become a strong independent woman like yourself. Happy Birthday!

07Linda, you have been a light in my life and a wonderful grandmother. So, just like the wine I picked out for tonight, I want you to know you only get better with age. Happy birthday love!


08I know we have had our differences in the past but that is because we are both intelligent, strong-minded women.
I respect and look up to you for your wisdom and your poise, and I pray that I will become at least half of the woman you are when I get to your age. Happy Birthday Miriam.



09Happy Birthday Agnes. You are a phenomenal woman and an incredible mother-in-law. Thank you for always making me feel welcomed and for treating me like family. You deserve love, laughter and lots of food on your birthday!


10They always say that you get to pick your spouse, but you don’t have a choice when it comes to in-laws. I guess I really lucked out when I joined this family. Happy Birthday, my dearest mother-in-law.


11This year, I wish for you more amazing memories, laughter, and happiness. Happy Birthday, my mother-in-law.

12It’s a rare thing to come across a mother-in-law that is as caring and as loving as you are, so I appreciate all that you are and all that you have given me. I wish you a happy birthday and a prosperous year.


13I have to say, it was funny how when I first met you, I thought you would have been like an evil stepmother. I was completely wrong. You turned out to be the fairy godmother. Thank you for making my fairytale with Rob a happy story. Happy Birthday.


14Even though we just met, from what I have heard from your son, I know that this will be the start of a beautiful relationship. Happy Birthday Maria, I am looking forward to getting to know you more.



15Even though we have moved halfway across the country, I never want you to feel left out or taken for granted. You are a rare gem that I will hold dear because you are one-in-a-million. Happy birthday.


16Happy Birthday to the greatest mother-in-law  of the century! I hate that I will miss your birthday party this year but as soon as I’m back in town we are on for girl’s night out so get your party dress ready!

17Dear Maggie, thank you for always lending an ear to my rants and complaints and for giving me the best marital advice. Truth be told I don’t know how I would have managed without you, you are truly something special. Happy birthday.


18You always put everyone before yourself, so this year I am making sure that everything is all about you. You deserve to have a happy birthday.


19While a blood bond is strong, the bond you can forge with people who were once complete strangers can become unbreakable.
This birthday, I want to let you know how much I appreciate and love having you in my life. You are my role model, inspiration, and a friend in my moments of sadness. Happy birthday!


20Over the years, you have become a nurse, a babysitter, a confidant, a chef, an advisor, and a second mom. You are the type of person that only comes once in a lifetime and for that, I will be forever grateful. Have a wonderful birthday Eve.
