This week before Mother’s Day is an exciting one on Tales of a Mountain Mama! We are eager to celebrate moms all week long. We’re honoring #marvelousmoms in the thick of it: stay-at-home-moms, working moms, entrepreneur moms, outdoorsy moms, beach moms, mountain mamas, and every type of mama in-between. We’re celebrating you. We all have our own story to tell about a special mother in our lives, whether she be your own mother, your sister, your friend, or a mother you’ve been blessed to know – please help us honor Mother’s Day by nominating a mother in your life! As a tribute to all mothers, we’re hosting a big giveaway with loads of prizes – don’t miss out on nominating a special mom in your life (and if they win, you will win the same prize!). Head over to the giveaway page to enter. As a part of our #MarvelousMoms event, everyday we will showcase a mom who serves as inspiration to us!
There is no way we could complete this week without giving honor and love to our own moms. They are the women who brought us into this world, loved us (and continue to do so) and helped shape us to be the women we are today.
Mom, thank you for believing in me, loving me and being an example of an outdoor go-getter. Even today, I love the fact that when you are here visiting, you are all about joining in on our adventures. Thanks for always making me want to be a better mom and a better person! I love you, Mom!
**A note about this photo: It’s actually a terrible one of all of us, but it’s so REAL. It was about 6 weeks after P was born, I was EXHAUSTED and in some serious need of normalcy. My parents were visiting, Mtn Papa was in the middle of fire season and I needed to get out. They joined us on a hike and encouraged me that life does get easier. And they were right….**
While no mother is perfect (nor is the child!), that is never what is most important. What is important is their love. Mom, there is no question when it comes to your love for me – and my siblings too! Thank you for giving me memories full of your love – and for encouraging me to not only be myself , but to be my better self. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! I love you!
