HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!  While we unfortunately couldn't give all the amazing mom's submitted to our "My Mom Rocks" contest a prize, we still wanted to honor how awesome you ladies are!

 

As I was reading all the submissions I was touched by the kind, thoughtful and loving messages to these incredible moms. I found myself missing my own mom, and the many women in my life who were like 'second moms' to me. And then I thought, "the world needs to see this!"  So, I spent the better part of my Friday creating this gallery for all you amazing moms, because you deserve to be honored and celebrated! (Plus, sometimes it's nice to hear that our kids appreciate all we do!)

Not only were my thoughts turned to my mother, but also to the little human I grew in my own tummy!  Becoming a mother was a terrifying, humbling and amazing experience all at once, and every day she pushes me and challenges me to become a better version of myself. She is by far my greatest joy and my best accomplishment and I feel so lucky to be her mommy!

So to all the women out there, whether you have given birth to your own little humans, have opened your homes and your hearts to little humans in need of mommys, or you have nurtured and loved others in a motherly way, know that you are all heroes. And you most definitely ROCK!
