50 Years Ago Today.....

January 6, 2011

....my beautiful Mom was born!!! 
This blog is dedicated to her.  Growing up both my parents were amazing.  I have so many great memories and everytime I see them, there's more for my scrapbook :) 
While I love my Dad, he can't quiiiite be like my mom: another female that I can relate to, seek advice, go shopping with (alllll day!) bake, and so much more.
I feel like I can talk to my Mom, especially, about anything and that hasn't changed.  She has helped me through a lot: good, bad, and just plain dumb (i.e. high school relationships). 
Since I've moved away - I found myself completely missing it... really just my family so bad it hurts sometimes.  We all have tons of fun whether it is dinner, fondue-ing, or sitting around talking and catching up.  And my mother is hilarious!  She cracks jokes along with all of us.  We all laugh so hard at one another.
She has driven me to interviews, sleepovers, school (to name a few) before I got my license, helped with homework, school projects and activities and always encouraged me.
Who else (along with my dad) is blessed enough to have parents move you to NYC for the summer to go through the best internship ever to prepare for post-college?  No one but me, that's who!  They gave up a lot for that and tons more.
And I must say SHE is where I got my baking skills, too. ;)  We can't forget that!  I'm spoiled with her baking and cooking -- and don't like to stray from her concoctions (can I move back home?)
I could go on and on, but that would probably get boring for my audience out there, and I don't want to make anyone jealous of my great mommy.  ;)  So with all that said, I want to say Happy happy birthday, MOM!  You are a wonderful woman, and I hope to one day be the person (and mom) you are.  I love you!

I will leave you with some great 'Momquotes':
