I could make this a very long post about my momma, but I will try to be succinct.
My mother is awesome.
There. That about wraps it up. The end.
Well, maybe I should elaborate on the reasons for this random mother post. Her awesomeness is three-fold. Allow me to expound...
She raised me right. She frequently helps me with my children. She's my best friend. She listens and adheres to my fashion critiques. She gave me good genes. She brings me Sonic diet Dr. Peppers with lime. She's the best shopping wing-(wo)man I know. And she's a pretty cute dresser....if I do say so myself. (I know, that was more ten-foldish.)
cardi: Target, shirt: Downeast, jeans: Express, jewelry and scarf: Charming Charlie, purse: Makowsky
Today, my mother exhibited all the above qualities and was a HUGE help to me! Hmmm...although I didn't get a Sonic drink...I'll forgive her I guess. She was kind enough to let me take her picture.
This morning, we went to a lovely little Veteran's Day program at my daughter's school. Hearing children honor veterans through song and word is so touching. Everyone was teary-eyed and the spirit of gratitude was palpable. I'm so grateful to all the souls who have served in our military. Happy Veteran's Day!
