I was lucky enough to have a fantastic mom for 26 years.
Mom, me, and Grandma - 2004
She was gorgeous and funny and silly and sassy, and everyone who met her instantly loved her.
For most of my life, it was just me and her. She was really, truly, my best friend. She was a fantastic friend, a loving grandma, and an all-around fantastic woman. There are no words that could really capture and describe her spunky nature. She was just awesome.
This year will mark 5 years since she died. It was sudden and awful and she was taken way, WAY too young.
Even though I've become a mother three times over, this day will ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS feel like it is supposed to be about my mom. I miss her her even more today than I do the other 364 days of the year, if that is even possible.
Ha! That is me, mom, and Bryan in 1995!
Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I love you and miss you EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
