Chocolate Milk Rings and Other Important Things

In the history of important is a really important SUPER important! 

And no, I'm not referencing the day they invented flat irons. Or the day some really smart human determined putting chocolate in milk was in fact delicious. 

I'm talking about the day my mom was born! Which was this day some odd years ago (you're welcome mom)

I truly believe some people are just made to be moms. And she is one of them. She is endlessly patient and encouraging. 

She lets me call and be a grouch to her on the phone some mornings 


She washed out countless cups with dried chocolate rings on the bottom over the years (I mean some things never change) 

She even told me how pretty I looked when I was convinced that wearing black jean mom shorts with a white belt was a good choice. 

I never went through that whole "I hate my mom" phase you're supposed to as a teenager. 

Literally the only fight I remember having in high school was when I wanted to stay at Bible Study later than curfew. 

And by fight, I mean phone debate. 

(I think we can also all agree she was blessed with an angel baby second child)

Somewhere along the lines, me Shannon and mom all became best friends. She is one of the most beautiful people I know inside and out and is truly the rock of our family. I'm so super thankful for this little lady and this super special day. 

Final Thoughts....We really should start taking pictures with a real camera. Love you to the moon and back mom!!

Happy Birthday!
