I blog a lot about beautiful wedding inspiration. I also blog a lot about the stress and trouble of wedding planning, but not once have I talked about the important people in my life who have inspired me and help shape the woman I am today (shame on me)!
One person who inspires me each and every single day is my mom! Yes, I know she looks like my sister! We actually hear that more times than not!
My mom has supported me in every decision I have ever made in my life…even the bad ones (e.g. nose piercing junior year of high school). She entertains the crazy ideas I have (i.e. getting a sleeve tattoo) and most importantly, she knows the importance of letting one make their own decisions so that he/she can learn from their mistakes or revel in their personal victories!
Her life has been anything but a cakewalk. I don’t know many women who could keep their sanity while raising three kids in diapers at the age of 18! Even though life isn’t always roses and butterflies, you will never hear her complain. Not ever! She has a way to roll with the punches and make lemonade out of lemons! Now that I look back at all the griping I did during the planning process, I feel so foolish.
Through all of her love and support, I have blossomed into the married woman I am today!
I love you momma bear! Thank you for all of your love and support through the years!
