Mother's Day is this Sunday and though I won't be spending the actual day with my mom, I will be thinking of her and definitely talking to her on the phone. We have always had a pretty close relationship and although we haven't always agreed on everything, our bond is strong and deep. My friends used to say that I sound like my mom or act like my mom and I didn't like it, but now I take it as a compliment.
My mom has one of the biggest hearts out of anyone I know and is always
willing to help. In the last year and a half, she has been an
instrumental part in making my condo the livable space it is today. My
dad and mom both have helped me so much that I will never be able to
repay them for everything.
My mom and I do a lot of things together. I got her to run her first 5k ever at the Miller Park Color Run. She was so proud of herself for doing it. And I am so proud of her too!
My mom is always someone willing to go to food events with me - like Wine & Dine or trying out a new restaurant.
And she is the one that taught me a lot of what I know when it comes to food. She is a much better baker than myself, but we pull together and make a terrific team when putting out a spread for a party.
And she has even passed down some of the family recipes to me so I can pass them on to the next generation.
My mom is also an amazing grandmother to my niece and nephew.
