Mother's Day means something so different to us now. It's not just an appreciation for the person that raised you. It's awe and admiration for the woman that, everyday, woke up sans REM sleep, pulled herself from the clutches of her, now, bff: her bed, put a smile on her face (most days), said "Good morning" admist wake dreams of more actual dreams, picked you up, held you, changed you, fed you, played with you, danced to your beat, laughed when you laughed, felt pain when you were in pain, and made everything, always, ok. She's the person that would help you become the person that she is more proud of than anything in her life. For this and much more she is so very deserving to be honored on Mother's Day. They should probably just make everyday Mother's Day, but hey, we'll take what we can get.
And in honor of this special day, here is a Portrait of one of those mom's that we will continually be in awe of: Our Friend Lorena. We really have no idea how she does all that she does, times two! We kind of have a hunch that she might be a super hero.
Happy Mother's Day (I'm calling it Mother's Week) Lorena! We hope you are spoiled and treated like the amazing person you are. And thank you for all of your advice and encouragement throughout our first year of parenthood. And for never being one of those judgy moms even when you have every right to be. ;)
