Who is she?

My mom…

taught me to love the outdoors.

taught me how to stand up for what I believe in, no matter how long it takes. The worst they can say is no.

was a runner the majority of her life. About 20-30 miles a week, without fail. She is now a dedicated yogi and follows a strength training routine.

takes care of her grand son and daughter while my sister is at work.

stayed at home with my sisters and I. The memories are endless.

complains about her lack of eyelashes, however has the most gorgeous skin I’ve ever seen.

used to show dogs. In her early twenties, she had three Afghan Hounds that she groomed herself.

put herself through college by opening up a dog grooming business.

is proud of her MBA and math degree. In her eyes, most problems can be solved mathematically.

has a child-like giggle. Just hearing her laugh and have fun makes me laugh and have fun.

has a very simple palette. Yellow cake with white icing pleases her.

knows how to fix anything, or at least knows where to go or who to ask.

has the greatest taste in home decorating. Or, maybe that’s because we share the same taste. I’m sure you would agree, though.

has the energy of the energizer bunny.

refuses to get a Facebook account, but is a huge supporter of this blog.

listens while I talk and responds accordingly.

sometimes knows me better than I know myself.

is my best friend. And probably both of my sister’s best friend as well.
