Throughout our entire engagement, my mom has been nothing but helpful, understanding and generous. She’s spent her hard-earned money on gifts that make us smile, her weekends graciously making phone calls, and her evenings running errands that are impossible for me to handle from the opposite side of the country. Despite the distance between us, I talk with my mom each day, and couldn't have made it through this process without her, as she has truly poured her whole heart into our wedding.
As a way to honor all of her hard work, here’s a photo of my beautiful mother at her July 1981 wedding. I hope I’ll look as lovely as she did, and that someday, I’ll happily look back at my own wedding photos with my daughter, still grateful for all that my mom has done for me.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! Love ya!
