I Love You, Mom... Happy Mother's Day
Happy Mother's Day to all of the Foxy Mommas out there!
Every year, I find more and more things about myself that are parts of my Mom. They are some of the best parts of me. She is strong beyond my comprehension and she loves in a way that requires bravery.
She's also a good person to drink champagne cocktails with at the end of the day, or to hit up a TJ Maxx and hunt down legit designer finds. Oh, and she bought us tons of Jelly shoes in the 80's (and I've since forgiven her for the perms).
I hope that someday... I am fortunate enough to have children... and that I remind people of my Mom in the ways that I love them.
This also happens to be my favorite Mother's Day because I hit the In-Law Jackpot and won Bry's Mom and Step-Mom by marrying him. These beautiful women have inspired me with their compassion and intelligence more than I ever could have dreamed possible.
One of the biggest surprises of marriage, for me at least, is how incredible it feels to have my family grow. And having more moms, luckily in my case (Best. In-Laws. Ever.), is a tremendous gift. And the gift keeps on giving because my fabulous sister-in-law is expecting a second baby!
So... Happy Mother's Day! I'll leave you with this song, from the movie "Babe," that my Mom would play for me.
