a very happy mother’s day.
it’s true, my mom is an all star. she totally rocks and i had the best time hanging out with her today. mother’s day wasn’t much different than any other day for us, because my mom is a huge part of my life. we talk on the phone and e-mail everyday, go out to dinner often, and do fun/cultural/adventurous things together as much as possible. the only different thing about today was that we fully acknowledged the reason why we have this amazing relationship: because she is a phenomenal mother.
i am so thankful for all the love and guidance she has given me, and especially grateful for the unfaltering encouragement on all my many (and varied) adventures. i admire her for her strength and resolve, her patience and faith, and her incredible dedication to those in need. she is hard-working, independent, and strong willed. she is sassy, funny, and beautiful. she is my biggest fan, my greatest role model, and my best friend.
i am so proud that this woman is my mother.
in addition to all these things, she is also a great photographer, and today i surprised her with a sweet digital canon rebel and a few fun lenses! i’m pretty sure i was almost as excited about the camera as she was! it’s so cute…like a mini version of my 5D, and it takes great photos! and check out the amazing job raven at pulp in logan circle did of wrapping everything up – pulp has the absolute best gift wrap selection + service ever!
