When I Grow Up...

I want to me a mom like this lady!
I can't even begin to tell you how thoughtful my mother is...

She knows me better than I know myself...

She knew I loved suncatchers before I knew I loved suncatchers...

She recognizes my love for paper towels and brings them to me often...

She makes the BEST Easter baskets...

She can tell at the very beginning of a phone conversation that I have a cold...

She is so very helpful with all of my gardening needs...

She loves on my kids and spoils them rotten...

She makes time for us every Tuesday for some quality time (and a little NCIS watching)...

She even somehow knew that I was thinking about buying a red Pandora charm to remind me of her (she LOVES red) because she recently bought me these:
Just cuz!

I want to be that for my children :)

I love you Mommy!

What a sweet post Kelli! I hope your mom reads your blog so she can see all the amazing things you say about her!

Aww, what a great mom. I think we appreciate our moms so much more as adults, and especially when we have our own children. I don't know what I'd do without mine.

Love this post my friend... so sweet and very reflective of your thoughtful nature.

Your little texts... just to check in... mean so much and I value that sincere quality in you! Apple doesn't fall far from the tree!
