I want to dedicate today's post to each and every mother out there who strives every day to provide the best for her family.
To my Mom, thank you for changing your ways over the past few years and becoming the mom that I have always wished you'd be. To my Step-Mom, thank you for always being there, even when times became tougher than we both wanted. To my Dad, thank you for always assuming the "Mr. Mom" role and always being a stellar parent. Your love and compassion means the world to me.
Today I am spending the afternoon with my Step-Mother and step-siblings! My sister is hosting a brunch at her house, so we are all heading over there to eat some traditional, delicious food and spend some quality time with each other. Our family hasn't all been together in one room in over a year, so I am beyond excited to finally see the gang together again!
We may not have it all together, but together we have it all. I love my family more than anything! <3
I plan to have Mother's Day round #2 with my Mom and Mom-Mom tomorrow. Double the moms means double the Mother's Day events!
I hope all mothers out there enjoy their special day!
