I will always need my Mom....

One thing I have learned over the years is that I will always need my Mom. When I was a child I would think that there will come a point in time when I would no longer need to have the help from your parents. As I became an adult myself I came to realize how vital and important those relationships are to me. I have come to realize how much they sacrificed and did so that I could become the person that I am. I am so incredibly grateful for both of my parents. My Mom just happens to be the one that lives close, so often times I lean more on her.

Last week was a VERY hard one with Collin. So, when my mom invited Regan and I up for a girls weekend I jumped at the opportunity. My Mom and her husband had just gotten back from Germany and Holland so they had lots of stories, pictures, and fun things to share about their trip. It is also nice to go and get some sleep. (Collin most nights only wants Mommy) My mother's home has become such an escape for me. When things are very stressful and Jason is ok with me leaving. I will go up there and spend time with one of my best friends, my mom. It rejuvenates me to spend a carefree day with her. Not having to worry about anything. If she catches me worrying she well tell me "Stop worrying Collin is fine. Jason is a good Dad. It is his turn, ok." I don't think I could ever explain how grateful I am for these short trips up to her house. I feel VERY blessed to have a Mom that loves me so much.

What would be a girls weekend with out yummy food. This time we were feeling up for Mexican food... so thank you viva Marias!

We all had a HUGE breakfast. So, when we got back to their home we decided to take the dogs for a walk. Regan LOVES walking the dogs!!!

Then if that wasn't enough to work off our breakfast mom and I took my new bike out for a test run.

I love you, Julie...and love it when you come see us. Wish we could do it more often! I am blessed that you consider me such a good friend, and the feeling is mutual. You are an amazing "girl" and I am glad you are mine!
