I would be remiss to not give a shout out to the other mama in my life!  I am super fortunate and blessed to have such a rad might as well be mother-in-law.  Not only is she one of my biggest supporters, she gave birth to a pretty amazing guy who I was fortunate enough to snag!!  Sorry ladies.  I love this lady a ton – Happy Mother’s Day!


Mother’s Day

To my mama:

I love you.  There is really no other way to say it.  I tested you, I pushed my limits, and even though I almost gave you several heart attacks, you let me.  You have always told me children need to test their limits, and I appreciate it.  Without the opportunities you gave me I wouldn’t be who I am today.  I know you saw my life differently than what it has become, but regardless I am strong, I will never give up, I have your backbone, I love fast and hard – all of these things I have from you.

You not only carried me inside of you, you still do – emotionally.  You are ALWAYS here for me.  You have become one of my best friends… and I love our relationship.  I wouldn’t trade you for the world.

Love you!
