Happy Birthday Mom

    I wish I could be there with you to celebrate.  I wanted to just find one great photo of us together to make you smile, but here's the thing: we don't have a lot of pictures together.  We need to do better.  I started looking through wedding pictures.  Nada.  What were we thinking?  Not a single shot of just the two of us looking at the camera.  But what I did see was something awesome.  All of the shots that we are in together are candid but they totally represent our relationship and what a great mom you are.  Below are just a few reasons that you're the best!

You celebrate my achievements both big and small.  Yes, I would consider the flip of my veil to be on the small side, but at least I managed not to get makeup all over it or rip it :)

 You kept me on the straight and narrow.

You have waited on me hand and foot.  This may sound weird, but let's face it: post-college you did all of my laundry and cooked my meals.  Thanks for taking care of me while I was busting my butt in school and working. 

You always have my back.  

You know how to kick loose and have fun with me too.  And that's what makes you not only my mom but my friend.

    Happy birthday, mom!  I love you!

 {Our most recent photo together.  Maybe when you come up for July 4th I'll find us a man dressed as Uncle Sam to take a picture with, so we can keep this mascot tradition alive}


  1. Wow!! What a wonderful birthday present. I am the luckiest mom around because I have two fantastic children.
    Lauren, you were so much fun as a child and now you are a wonderful adult. Raising you and Mike has been the best part of my life.
    Can't wait to celebrate my 29th birthday with you and looking forward to the next mascot picture.

    Love You- Mom
