She is the person that has made the biggest impact on my life. She is the one who has taught me what sacrifice is and how you can be blessed when you do it. She has prayed for me and over me my whole life and it has indeed paved a path for my creative career. She likes updates on my daily happenings and is typically one of the first people I call when I have a random story to tell. She’s into dramatic football games and the up to date news, loves crazy animal videos as much as I do, and enjoys planting a new crew of flowers and grasses for the deck each summer. The sand bottom pool is her happy place if she isn’t snuggled up with her pup friends. Her mind is always working on something creative… even if it’s moving the furniture around or painting something old to give it new life. We adore vintage leather bags over new ones, and rescue animals over a new litter. The more I find myself, the more I realize how much alike we are and how she has influenced the woman I am now. Today I celebrate her and all she’s done, given, and been through. Today is her birthday and she deserves to end the summer at her favorite place and trying something they say comes right back to you. So, this weekend we shall lounge at the pool, dance in the car to The Beatles, plant something beautiful, and go for our first bike ride together as adults. She found this fabulous bike online in perfect timing. It was MEANT to be her birthday gift. Now we just need to name it. 🙂
Happy Birthday, Mom. Thank you for being a friend.
My nephew enjoyed our styled bicycle shoot and decided to celebrate with us. 🙂
