Mother's Day


Don't forget, Mother's Day is this Sunday! And if there is anyone who deserves a day of celebration, it's moms. I love my mom, and although it hasn't always been easy between us (high school was pretty rough), I'm so grateful to have a mom like her. She's always looking out for my best interests and so caring. I've never met anyone who so genuinely loves to take care of people. When Ben first started coming home with me, she found out all his favorite foods and tried to make sure she had all of them...including gallons of chocolate milk because she heard him say he liked chocolate milk. How sweet is that? Plus, my mom is seriously hilarious (oftentimes without meaning to be). It's so cute! You can't help but start laughing when my mom cracks up. The older I get, the more I appreciate her and the more I enjoy talking with her. Mom, I love you!

What did you get for your mom this year for Mother's Day? Do any of you have fun traditions that you do as a family? Or are you a last-minuter? If so, make sure you at least get a card for your mom. I'm doing my part to remind you!

    When I was younger, my mom would get both grandma's a fuchsia on mother's day. Last year, I decided to keep her tradition and bought her one! She loved it!

    I love your mom too!!! And that picture... are you picking your nose? You and Leon are so funny.
    I'm going to make my momma a pretty flower bouquet or get her a hanging basket to keep the family tradition alive. We'd always buy Grandma a pretty basket, and now that she's not here anymore, time for me to start that tradition!

    Too bad I wasn't in this picture, it would have made it a whole lot cuter! Mom loved this post :)

      Haha, I know...I looked for a picture with you in it too, but basically all my photos from when I was 8-13 years old are terrible! Puffy bangs, braces, big glasses, zits, and really ugly clothes, all at once...let's just say I had a looong awkward stage.
