Happy Birthday, Mom!!

Happy Birthday, Mom!!

I love you, hope you have a wonderful Birthday!

First off, I want to say Happy Birthday, Mom. Without you, I wouldn't be here and I wouldn't be the woman I am today. I am so thankful that you are in my life. You have taught me right from wrong, how to have confidence in my self, and to be proud of who I am. You are my inspiration in life. I have always looked up to and hope to one day be as great of a mom as you are to Kyle and I. Even though there are days when we don't always see eye to eye, and we don't get along, thereare more days when we do. I feel like we are two peas in a pod. You have been my best friend since the day I was born. Then 19 months later you gave birth to Kyle. I think I can speak for both of us when I say we love you and don't know what we would do without you. Thank you to both you and dad for taking the time to take us on vacations when we were growing up. Those are some of my favorite times we had to together as a family and those memories will forever be my favorite ones. Not every family gets to do that, but I'm glad that we did because of the memories made. You are beautiful, kind, loving, and most importantly, the best mom a kid could ask for. I'm sorry that Kyle and I won't be around this year to help you celebrate your birthday. I know you would love to have both of us home to celebrate with you, but you will have to wait a week before you see us again. Once again, Happy Birthday! I love you Mom, and see you soon!

A Letter To My Best Friend On Valentine's Day

Because you are my ultimate Valentine.

To my beautiful best friend,

Warning: This letter is about to get extremely cheesy. I am talking four cheese lasagna cheesy. But no one deserves a love letter like this more than you do.

This Valentine’s Day, I want to express my love for you. On this wondrous occasion with which most people express their love to their significant other, I want to tell you, my best friend, how much I cherish our friendship.

You are the ultimate love of my life. Boys have come and gone but you remain a constant; for that I am grateful. You have been there for me when my family could not be; for that I am grateful. You have been my backbone, my rock, and all those other clichés people use to describe the people they care about, and yet you have been so much more than that as well; for that I am grateful.

All my love this Valentine’s Day goes out to you, my friend, because you do not receive it enough. You have picked me up out of the dirt, brushed me off, and kissed my wounds more times than I can count, and I will never be able to thank you enough for that, but I am sure am going to try.

Thank you for the midnight cries. Thank you for the midnight laughs. Thank you for ordering way too much food with me and still just eating it all. Thank you for the advice, both solicited and unsolicited. Thank you for telling me what I need to hear, even when it isn’t what I want to hear. Thank you for the silly pictures. Thank you for the stupid inside jokes. Thank you for making bad decisions with me. Thank you for laughing with me and laughing at me. Thank you for the endless memories.

More than anything, I want you to know that I love you. I love you. You are the family I get to choose, the one I go to when I have nowhere else to turn. You are the one I know I can always run to, whether we saw each other yesterday or haven’t seen each other in a year. You have played a part in molding who I am as a person, and I am so grateful for having such an amazing person affecting my life in such a positive way.

With all the love in my heart,

Your friend

Things To Do For Your Parents on Valentine's Day

Treat your parents this Valentine's Day!


February 14 is seen as a romantic date for you and your significant other, and that's how my parents took it. They got married on Valentine's Day as an ode to romance. This year marks their 10-year wedding anniversary and as their oldest daughter, I've tasked myself with giving them some great gifts.

Here are four things to do for your parents if you're struggling with ideas!

1. Make a reservation for two (for your parents!)

Candle-lit dinners are a staple for romance. Search for restaurants near your parents that they've never been before and set them on their way! And if you want to be extra nice, give them some cash for their dinner!

2. Take cute pictures of you and your siblings

One thing your parents love just as much as each other (if not, more) is you and your siblings! Grab your sisters and brothers for a cute photo shoot, have each kid write a note either on the frame or the pictures itself, wrap it up and give it to your parents!

3. Take some responsibility off their shoulders

Our parents do a lot for us, so this Valentine's Day give them a break! If they normally do the dishes, laundry or other household chores, grab your siblings to divide and conquer. If you can afford it, give them some gas or lunch money. Try to make their life just a little bit easier!

4. DIY a date night for your parents

Some parents are homebodies, but they can have just as wonderful night by staying in! One DIY indoor date could be dinner and a movie! Make them a delicious dinner with a nicely decorated table for dinner. Decorate your living room with lights, pillows, and blankets for comfort. Set popcorn, candy, and other movie snacks on the coffee table and fire up Netflix. This all makes for a cozy night in!
