happy mothers day

When we got married about a year and a half ago, my mom not only walked my down the aisle and gave me away...but we also did the mother/daughter dance in lieu of the traditional father/daugher dance. My dad passed away when I was quite young, and my mom has been an amazing lady through it all. It still amazes me that she raised two daughters that turned out so damn good {and we've given her our own fair share of trouble!}

Just a few more things that amaze me about mom:
* the amazing lifelong friendships she's created
* her ability to make new lifelong friends
* the fact that all of my friends call her a friend too
* her ability to always say what you need to hear
* her passion for politics
* her interest in saving the oak trees in our valley
* the fact that she gave up smoking after years and years

* that she truly loves her job
* how she creates batches of carefully crafted thank you cards for all of her friends and mine for every occasion, whether it's a wedding, new baby, etc.
* that she does her yoga

I could probably fill a million more lines...but I need to save some for next year right?
Happy Mother's Day mom....xoxo...looking forward to our day of fun!
