As long as I'm living, my mama you'll be!

Mothers Day this year was spent at my Nana & Papa's house, just like it is every year. We were blessed with some beautiful weather that paired well with the delicious hot dogs, hamburgers, and pulled pork grilled by my Uncle Todd. Most of my family was there but there were many that were missed.

Mothers Day is probably one of my favorite holidays because I love getting to spoil my mama. Long story short, my mother is one of the most amazing people I know and she's shown that time and time again while raising my sister and I. Us three girls have been through some ups and some downs, much like any other family, but we have always been there for each other, and my mom has always stuck by us- no matter what. My mom raised us well, at least I'd like to think so, against all other odds thrown at her. She was a single mom, working long hours, yet still maintained our household, made sure we always had the newest style on our backs, and took the time to chaperon numerous spring break trips when all other parents would have never fathomed it. All because she cared, that much. I cannot even put into words how proud I am of her for being such an amazing woman for my sister and I to look up to all throughout our lives. I questioned her rules, her decisions, and her actions, many, many, times while growing up but now I aspire to one day have that much patience, faith, and love for my kids. She's my rock, my best friend, and best of all- my mama.
