happy birthday mom!

Today I want to take a moment and just thank my mother for investing so much of her life into me. It is crazy after you have children of your own, how much you appreciate your own mother. When I had Keegan, I realized for the first time just how much my mom loved me. It brought me to tears. I am the woman that I am today because of the love of this gentle, loving, humble, and encouraging woman. She always believed in me and all of my crazy dreams. As it turns out, the belief and encouragement of a mother makes dreams come true. Thanks Mom! I love you so much and wish you the best birthday possible.

No post is worthy of posting without a picture of course. So, here is a photo that was taken at my wedding (four years ago tomorrow) of myself with my pretty Mama.
