Dear Momma

Mom,

When I was little I’d write you a poem or paint you a picture with tiny hands. This year, I’ll wish you Happy Mothers Day the best way I know how, with a blog post…

You are my role model, my inspiration, my friend.

Thank you for packing me a lunch every day growing up, for being my Gamma Phi Beta Momma, for countless shopping trips, for always dressing me cute (even now) and asking if people liked my outfit (even when most of the time no one said anything), for doing tennis clinics with me, for hundreds of long phone calls (good thing we have Verizon mobile-to-mobile), and for dutifully editing my papers.

I love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I’m living, my mommy you’ll be.

Happy Mothers Day!

Hi, I came across your blog randomly and thought I'd de-lurk and say "hello". I'm also from the SD area and travel quite a bit for work so I can relate to many things you've blogged about. Also, thanks for the cork board idea. It looks awesome. :)
