Since I can’t be with my Mama today, I found myself sorting through old photos this morning over a cup of coffee wishing we could be together. I found this gorgeous shot of her flying a kite on the beach in Oregon and I just love it. My mother is caring, kind and gorgeous and has been a fantastic friend and role model every minute, no matter what. After my parents’ divorce it was just us two for a long time and we have a bond that will forever be the cornerstone of my life.

Mama, I am so thankful to have you in my life and so appreciative of every little thing you do for me, more than anything supporting me in my every move in life.

Wishing all of the mother’s out there a comfy, cozy mother’s day. Enjoy the sunshine, too if you’re in Seattle.

I love you, Mama.
