i always knew i had an exceptional mom from a very young age.
my mother is the kind of woman that other women admire. she inspires people.
i thought i'd share some fun facts about my mom today, cuz she's pretty wonderful:
she gets regularly mistaken for michelle pfeifer at the doctor's office
she taught me how to play piano starting at age 4. i sobbed and cried through countless lessons and i'm so thankful for what it did for my life, my career, and my heart
she makes the most amazing white wine chicken pasta
she taught me that complimenting other women often is something that the world needs more of; women supporting women
she has a terrible sweet tooth. a trip to the mall always involves a pit stop at see's candies for toffee chips
she taught me to always dress my best because a first impression is often all you'll ever have
she is a beast in the gym. she puts me to shame…
her work ethic is outrageous. she does a lot and looks good while doing it
yes, my guy friends in high school thought my mom was hot… it still happens today and yes, it's awkward
she's the only person i know that can actually pull off leopard print shoes.
she taught me how to be a teacher. the balance between inspiring, pushing, and loving is a delicate art that she has certainly mastered
she's a fantastic mother who raised three pretty kick-ass kids (if i do say so myself)
happy mother's day, ma. my number one blog reader and all around supporter. i love you
