my mom just being a mom

Some of my very favorite things in this photograph. My mom, my sister and a giraffe. It’s one of my favorite pictures of my mother. Just a being a mom at the zoo. Also, how hip is she? I would like to borrow that outfit, please and thank you.

I love this for many reasons, but really because it’s a photo of my mom being a mom. That’s my sister in that stroller, circa 1982/83ish. My mom is beautiful, loving and one of my very best friends. I am so incredibly thankful for her influence in my life and her continued love and support. I have come to realize that I am becoming more and more like her everyday and for that, I am so very grateful. I love you, mom. Happy Mother’s Day!

To my amazing mother-in-law, to my sister Jennie (the one in the stroller) and my sister-in-law Amanda. To all of the wonderful mother’s I know in my life. To those mothers without babies, to those who take care of others and love others. To those who ache for a child, to those who are just waiting for the right time. To those with fur babies. This is your day as well. Happy Mother’s day to you.
