If you ask me about my mom, get ready to hear a nice long speech about all the things I love about her. But today, instead, I'll share a pretty normal length blog post. :)
My mom is a mom to five, plus more if you count all the people who she's loved and welcomed into our home through the years. After people meet her, they can't stop talking about how kind she is. She is intelligent and hard working - the perfect combo of elegance and not being afraid to get her hands dirty outside.

She is an amazing lady. And she cooks amazing food. She's a loving and supportive wife. And she puts up with (and joins in on) my and my siblings weirdness.

My mom is the most encouraging person I know. I think that really shaped my life growing up and totally changed the way I look at people. Now, as a mom myself, she has been such a kind, safe person to share my hardest moments with. I know I can call her when I'm crying or call her when Bekah does something really cute that I just want to share. She's always cheering us kids on and seeing the best in us.
She's always there for me and always believes in me. I love you, Mom! Thank you for being you and for being the most beautiful representation of a mom.
** I'd love to hear about your momma, too! Hope you all had a great mother's day weekend.
