How Far She's Come

This post is dedicated to my Mom.


Doesn't she look so young?

I can't say that we have always had the perfect relationship, or were best friends as I was growing up, but today we are probably the closest we have ever been. I'm so proud of her for how far she has come the past few years.

Here is a picture of us from 2005:


And 2006:


Now, check us both out in 2007:


And I'm sure you can see the difference in the picture above from my wedding in 2008!!

What a journey she has had. She lost 100 pounds, and did it without any gimmicks, pills, shakes, etc. Pure will power and determination. Though, I think a lot of it had to do with this guy:


She is 100%, without a doubt, the BEST grandmother a kid could ask for. Now that she is healthy, and taking care of herself, she is the most active grandma, too!

I mean, I love my grandparents, but I never had the relationship that C has with my mom. He is the luckiest kid in the world. She is there for every concert, school event, soccer game, baseball game, and basketball game. They go to cooking classes, movies, you name it, they do it. It's pretty cool, actually.

She's an inspiration, and I'm proud to call her my mom!!

Love you, Kath!

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there. Take the day to do something for yourself - you deserve it!
