happy mother's day

Today is my first Mother's day. I never thought it would mean so much to me, but it does. It is the first holiday I had to earn. Pregnancy, labor, childbirth.....and the job never actually ends. It's wonderful. It's rewarding. It's also really damn hard. So today, on Mother's day, I want to send out some thanks of my own. 

the day I became a Mommy.

To my mom, a thank you is never going to be good enough. You have done so much for me, for us, and I can really appreciate it all now (not that I didn't before, but now I really know what's up!) You are an amazing Mom. Loving. Supportive. Generous. Beautiful. A perfect example. I love you so much and wish we could spend more time together. Charlotte is so lucky to have you as her Nana.

To my Grandma, I love you. Talk about the best Grandma in the world. I say it ever single year but it is so true. You are the best. I don't know how is the world we got so lucky. You are patient, loving, giving, and pretty darn funny. We love traveling with you and creating so many wonderful memories. And I am so happy Charlotte gets to have those memories too. Thanks for everything Gma.

And a special shout out to Rachel. You are one crazy fool, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Without you, life just wouldn't be as entertaining. Plus, who would I call with my random questions? You seem to know it all! We love you!

I would not be the woman, or mother, I am today without each of you. You have all supported me and loved me unconditionally and for that I am forever thankful. Charlotte is so lucky to have each of you in her life. She is one very loved little girl.
