Happy Mother’s Day!

I wish I could have had this post up first thing this morning, but I was in class all day yesterday and today.  Boo!  After class, I was able to swing by and wish my mom a Happy Mother’s Day, enjoy my dad’s BBQ dinner, and drop off my funny card.  My mom and I did a quick Trader Joe’s shopping run to stock up on wine and dried bananas.  It’s simple times like these hanging out with my mom that make me appreciate our relationship!  I am so lucky to have such an amazing woman and role model in my life.

 

Here are a few of my favorite things about my mom…

 

She is always up for a walk or an adventure!

She listens well.

She gets up early to braid my hair before a race and is always waiting for me at the finish line.

Except when she is impressing me and inspiring others by finishing races herself.

She makes me breakfast when I sleep over (and scratches my back when she wakes me up).

She loves a good party!

At age 60, she rode her bike 400 miles across Iowa and let me finish the journey with her.

She has moved me to Memphis and back (TWICE!!!).

She is beautiful inside and out.

She is a strong, caring and considerate friend.

And the most wonderful mother a girl can have!

Wishing my mom and all of the other incredible mother’s out there a wonderful day today and every day!

Happy Mother’s Day!
