Happy Birthday to My Mom

It's my mom's birthday today! My mom is one of the most amazing, beautiful people I know. I love these pictures that I was able to stalk and grab from her and my dad's facebook. To me, all these images show who my mom really is. She is a woman who loves her family fiercely, and we all know that she would do anything for us. She is also a woman who works really hard but also knows how to have fun. One of my favorite recent pics of her is where she and a friend are going down the kiddie slide on a cruz they recently went on, and there's two girls in the back staring down on them. I want to be that woman when I grow up ;) 

One of the things that my mom always told us that I still repeat to myself nearly every day is that you can do anything you set your mind to. Thank you mom for loving us hard, and pushing us hard, and showing us that we should take our selves seriously but not too seriously all at the same time. You are amazing, and I hope to be half the woman that you are someday.
