A Letter To My Mom

Because I don't tell you enough...

A Letter To My Mom

Dear Momma,

As I have gotten older, went to college, and moved away from home, I have realized how fast time travels. How many hours I haven't been with my family, how many minutes I have gone without telling you how much I love you.

So momma, I love you- and with my whole heart. I know I don't always show or tell you how much I love you, but I promise I do.

I have not forgotten all that you have done for me. No action of yours goes unnoticed. You have shaped me into the women I am today. Without you, who knows what I would be doing!

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been my rock. From putting bandaids on my cuts to holding me in your arms when I needed to cry to you about a breakup, you have always been so assertive and loving.

Not only are you a great care-taker, but you are a hero. Not just a hero for our family, but a hero to so many kids. The way you counsel children at your school and love on them shows. I can tell from the smiles on their faces when they find you at Walmart how much they adore you.

You have taught me many important life skills, but I think we can all agree that our best skill is shopping! When it comes to shopping, we are always ready to roll. You even told me how to hide all of our bags from my dad when we came home from a long day at the mall.

Some people say we look alike and I take that as a compliment! Who wouldn't want to look like you? But I think more than anything, that we act more alike. As I have gotten older, I have noticed how we have similar personality traits and have the same weird quirks. I blame you for my hard and painful hiccups. But I guess all this is what makes us such great friends!

And one of the most important things that I have realized as I have gotten older, is how much you have sacrificed for me. When I asked for money to go to a movie or bowling with my friends, you gave up something that you could have bought for yourself. When I was sick with the flu, you sacrificed your health by being around me and your time at work.

I could go on and on about you, mom. The list of reasons why I am thankful for you will never end. I will try to remember to call you more often, hug your neck every chance I get, and tell you I love you everyday, because time sure does fly by.

I love you,

Your daughter

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
