On my good days, people ask if we’re sisters, but more often than I care to admit—the assumption is mother/daughter. We aren’t actually related —but I’ll claim her. For seven years, Maureen Grosser has planned my life, been my constant travel buddy (Mo wouldn’t miss a Save the Children site visit for anything), helped me look organized (🙅🏻♀️), and competent at things like SignupGenius(🙅🏻♀️), and, most of all, this very platform. People ask what social media company I use—well, I sit in the excellent company of @mogrosser, noodling on ideas, and edits, and captions, playing to our morphed-into-one funny bone. Mo isn’t one to want attention, but she’s in lockup with me at my crazy house and it’s her birthday. Plus it’s time I post something without her approval, for crying out loud. Happy birthday, Mosie, we are lucky to have you here with us, today and always. We love you. ♥️🎈🎉♥️
