Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!
This week I went to one of my favorite flower shops in Silverlake (at Sunset Juction) and picked out some gorgeous Peonies for my mom. I am now in Temecula celebrating with my whole family this weekend. I have so many special memories with my mom — and now as an adult, I truly admire her so much. She had my oldest brother when she was 20 and then had another child every year and a half until she was 28. I cannot imagine having 5 little ones under the age of 10 running around at my age right now! I am the middle child of 5 and feel seriously blessed (cheesy, I know) to have every one of them in my life.
I like to say “I got it from my mama,” because you’ll see below in some of my photos that I look a lot like her! Besides my looks, I got so much of my personality from her that I’m so grateful for.
She taught me to be a hard-worker. When I was working on a jewelry line several years ago, she would spend hours and hours helping me make jewelry. She taught me to be loyal and committed to the people in my life – there is nothing she wouldn’t do for our family. She taught me to take care of my health, keep a clean house (sometimes, haha!) and to put God first in my life.
I love you, Mom! Thank you for raising me, supporting me, and loving me through everything. xx
