My mom started a job as a server at a restaurant that is just opening up around the corner from our house. Tonight they had a “soft opening” and friends & family got to come and order food at no charge!  Kyle and my dad and Mark and I all came and had drinks, appetizers, dinner, and dessert. 

I managed to take a picture in there even though I was mostly distracted watching my mom excel at waitressing. I’ve heard so many stories from her days as a chef and working in the food industry and always had these internal images of my mom doing her thing, but it has always been a version of her before motherhood – a version of her I’ve never known.  So to see her in action was one of the most warming things I’ve seen in a long time. 

And the food was delicious, too.
