i have taken a blogging hiatus lately. the whole idea of blogging lately has seemed so unappealing. too many people to keep up with. taking random pictures specifically for my blog to make my life look more exciting. i am going on strike for a minute. (check out this hilarious blog if you are too feeling like sometimes you just cant keep up). so funny

Happy birthday to my darling mom!! My mother is many wonderful biggest cheerleader, my best friend, my confidant, my teacher, my favorite person to run errands with, my example of goodness, my spiritual foundation, my mood booster, and so much more! She is kind and beautiful and anyone who knows her can see that she is good through and through. We have this friendship that I can't quite explain. Ever since I was little I remember just loving to be around her. She is by far the most talented woman around and we often joke about the fact that she can do anything, and everything she does, she does well. I think the thing I love very most about her though is her heart. She is constantly doing things for others and she has the greatest moral compass. I love you mom and I hope this birthday is one of the best yet!
