The Words

ode to a beauty queen

photo-3Cheers, to a woman who has always been the light of my life and my very best friend. One whom I am able to call just about every day, just to see what’s happenin’. (Some days when I’m on my way home from work, I brainstorm, trying to think of any reason to call.) This is for a woman who gives anything and everything to her children and who’s main concern is making everyone happy. To a woman who can put together a spread like you’ve never seen in about 4 seconds flat, (complete with every cracker imaginable, a plethora of cheeses, chocolates, fruits & veggies, and anything else you can imagine… really…). To a woman who can tie a scarf and accessorize like a pro, who gives fabulous advice and has the solution for any problem. She has been my confidant, my teacher, friend, editor, (how many high school and college papers do you think you proofread for me throughout my schooling career!?), cheerleader, and definitely my biggest fan. Thank you mama for everything you have taught me in my life. You mean more to me than you know.

Happy Mothers Day to a true beauty queen, inside and out. I hope you feel very loved, because you are.

    I am overwhelmed. It feels so good to know that I am important to you Lauren. I love you for saying all those nice things. It made my day. How lucky am I to have you, Britt, Erin, Linds, and Seth for children. I am truly blessed. Where on earth did you find this picture?
