You two. You're the reason I get to celebrate this day. You are the reason I strive to be better. You give this wild ride of life meaning and purpose. You make me so happy. You make me laugh. You make me cry. You strengthen me. You teach me. You give me courage. You challenge me. You love me. I love you.
Happiest of Mother's Day to all Moms. But especially to mine. Mom, it wasn't until I had these two nuggets that I truly "got" all you are, all you did, all you sacrificed for Steph, Jarrod, and me. Amazing doesn't do you justice, Mom. If I'm half as good as you were and continue to be, I'll be doing a damn good job. Love you and wish we were together today.
Two other shouts out go to Kristin Tatem of Kristin Tatem Photography and Rebecca Kent of Blossom--two amazing, hard working moms whom I also call friends and who made this post possible. KT, you know I love you & your mad skills, and Rebecca, I adore your spunk and fabulous threads you clothe me and the gals in! Enjoy your day ladies!
PS: Let me briefly talk shop because I know I struggle with finding hair accessories that both the gals and I can agree on. One it's gotta hold their manes in place (they've got very thick heads of hair thanks to my mother). And two, it must be comfy and cute--and I use that term loosely since my big gal is such a tomboy, God forbid it's girly or cute. Thankfully Remington has tons of adorable options that satisfy both me and the little ladies. Headbands are ridiculously comfortable with no behind the ear complaining, and the barrettes actually hold their hair in place--it's a miracle I tell ya! Cute, comfy, and functional--thank you, Remington!
Enjoy your day gang. Moms, kick your feet up and relax--you deserve it, you're doing a wonderful job!
