My mom is fierce.

She taught me that what’s inside means more than appearances on the outside. She has taught me what it means to be loyal, dependable, and dedicated. She’s shown me what selflessness looks like, and what it means to support someone.

My mom wasn’t my friend growing up – she was my mom. That was what I needed her to be.

However, as I’ve gotten married, started my own business, moved into a house, she’s shown me how great of a friend I have in her. She’s taught me the little things like how to transplant annuals, trim trees. In times of struggle she’s handed me marriage advice. When I jumped head first into A Borrowed Likeness, she told me she was proud of me and helped me set up my Quickbooks and understand tax rates.

Today, when I had to run to Red Wing to pick up my piece from the Farm to Table exhibition, she offered to come with. I told her I’d buy lunch, and we found a super cute spot on the river to have lunch. I enjoyed every minute of it!

I’ve always been thankful for being blessed with a strong, dedicated, courageous, kick butt mama, but I don’t tell her enough.

So thanks, mom, for all that you have done, and all that you continue to do. I love you!
