I thought it would be fun to do a little mama shout out since it's getting closer to Mother's Day. I think we all know that mom's deserve more than just one day of celebration, so I decided I'd go ahead and highlight cool mom's all week!
So here's a little tribute to my mom. She really is one of a kind. I don't know why, but this is one of my favorite photos of her. She had recently broken her leg in a golf carting accident, which I was witness to. Somehow, she literally flew out of the cart and smashed her knee to bits, hence the cast. (This was one of those stories that went into family stories syndication... Remember when mom flew out of the golf cart?!) Anyway, I love that despite the cast she decided to rock the cute high waisted shorts and halter top, and we can't ignore the sassy Princess Leia doo.
She always seemed to enjoy mothering and allowed us to really enjoy the fun of being a kid. We were probably what some people would now call "free range" kids. We could go wherever we wanted, as long as we made it home by 5 for dinner.
If you know my mom, you also know that she loves to dance. Although my father is not what you'd call a natural dancer, he has always been more than happy to escort her onto the floor so she can spin whirl and shimmy around him... it really is the cutest thing ever. Sometimes he will even ask her to dance after we eat dinner. I caught this photo the last time we ate out on the porch when they snuck inside for a secret dance.
I also love this photo above. Mom loves nothing more than when we are all at home, spending time with each other. With my brother and his family being in Costa Rica, it's rare for all of us to be in one place nowadays, so times like this are special. Hope you enjoyed this little tribute to my momma!
