50 Things I LOVE About My Mom

50 Things I LOVE About My Mom

Yesterday was my mom’s birthday! It was a milestone birthday – the big 5-0. I’m hoping she doesn’t kill me for putting that out there, but if I didn’t tell you then you would really have no idea. She not only looks young, but she is young at heart. Everyone always thinks we are sisters – insert eye roll 🙂

But really, look at this picture of her and my dad — they look much younger than 50!

In honor of this BIG birthday, I’m listing out the reasons I love my mom – one for each year of her life!

  1. I wouldn’t be here without her…
  2. She gave me all of my craft genes.
  3. She holds our family together. The “glue” so to speak.
  4. She taught me how to cook.
  5. She taught me how to do laundry.
  6. She cooked breakfast for my brother and I every morning through our schools years.
  7. She loves unconditionally.
  8. She always strives to see the good.
  9. She is always out to lend a helping hand.
