Happy Mother's Day

A celebration post in honor of the most important influencer in my life...

My Mom

The military brat..then military military grandma.
All American Patriot
Beautiful and feisty red-head
Travel guide and companion through many counties
Hand to hold on the most important of days
Grandma and best friend
Model wife and mother to two girls

Always up for an adventure
Always there for a new baby
Best ever holiday hostess in the best ever home to return to
Dance teacher
Last face to see before heading overseas
Not afraid to travel to Iceland for a fantastic visit
Best every vacation partner in crime
Best ever hair cutter
The one to pass on the love of New Mexico Green Chili.....and teacher of how to pick, process, freeze and eat!
And crazy party animal.

Yes. I have the best ever mom. I only hope I'm half as loving, compassionate and have half the servants heart towards my family as she does for hers.

Love you mom!


  1. Hey friend! Love the post/tribute to your mom. Have to agree with you, sorta. Can't leave my mom out of the 'best mom' category.

  2. Oh, what fun! You have some great pictures there. I have to argue, or course, because I think my mom is the best. But, you are allowed to think your's is the best too I guess.
    I do like that red hair! My mom's mom was a red head, which is where my sister, cousins, and now my Zion all get their's from. I think your mom and mine would probably get alone nicely.
    Hope your Mother's day was fabulous!

  3. Hey! There is all kinds of room for "best mom". Wish absolutely everyone had one to brag on!

  4. Sounds like you have a wonderful mom! What a great tribute to her. And I'm sure you most definitely have cultivated her best traits, plus a few of your own. ;)

  5. What a great post and honor to your mom! She sounds like a good one :)
