Mother's Day.

Day 12: What do you miss? (a person, place, thing, time in your life...)

Missing is a weird thing... it's hard and it's painful. But it's intense and one of the most raw emotions - I think. I've always kind of thought that missing someone is the true test of a person's feelings. That ache for someone or something when they're gone - when you are thinking about them when they aren't around. That's something. That's when you know they mean something to you. That's when you know you must hold on for dear life.

But I guess this post isn't about my thoughts on the emotion - now is it? Got a bit off subject...

What do I miss... {and because I clearly only write in list form lately... we're going to go with that.}

My blonde hair. {two more weeks... two more weeks...}
The beach.
When things were simpler.
My family when I'm away.
Watching Harper grow and change.
Snickers. {cat not candy}
Summer vacation.

And countless other things, I'm sure. But I have other things to tend to...

Like... HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to my wonderful Momma.


This woman is incredible. She is my best friend, the most honest person I know, and she believes in my brother and I to depths of her soul. There aren't enough words, or time to thank her for everything she done for me.

I love you, Mom and feel blessed that I am lucky enough to call you my Mom and best friend.

But instead of spending my time writing about her... she and I are heading out to the antique stores today. And then we are cooking up a delicious dinner for her tonight!

And I'm feeling generous... it's Mother's Day and a week until my 30th birthday.. enter code MOMMA to save 30% at Nora & Jac. ONE DAY ONLY! Ends tonight at midnight!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Sunday!

This made me just love you, there's not other word around it.. that's right "word" around it..

"That ache for someone or something when they're gone - when you are thinking about them when they aren't around. That's something. That's when you know they mean something to you. That's when you know you must hold on for dear life."

Missing is my weakness, perhaps it's not a weakness at all.

I'm pretty sure your first paragraph could have been a narrative of Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill. That's exactly what I thought of when I read it. :)
