Today is a very special day for me. It is my mom's birthday, and I couldn't be more thankful to be able to celebrate it with her. She was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2013 and battled it with absolute bravery, humor, and grace...but honestly I didn't expect any less. She has always been my hero and throughout the past year has once again showed me how to appreciate every moment we have on this beautiful earth. I love you with all my heart Mom, Happy Birthday!
