This might sound super silly, but all I really ever dreamed about doing once I grew up was having children. I’m not even sure if this is something I really ever shared with anyone other then my husband. Sure, I always had passion and dreams of working in a creative field – which eventually grew more focused on fashion. But having kids was my dream, the one thing I literally daydreamed about and hoped for. Mother’s Day was a day of total happiness for me – everyday I feel so blessed to be King and Harlow’s Momma, and like a won the lottery with Chris as my husband. I often tell my husband “these are the kids I dreamed of” – on Mother’s Day as I watched King and Harley play together, seeing the love they have for each other I felt like the family I have is far beyond what my dreams ever amounted to.
My family spoiled the pants off me on Momma’s Day: breakfast in bed, decorations around the house, a day in my favorite neighborhood, a tattoo, and dinner at Chipotle – I’m easy to please and it’s really not about ‘stuff’, so all of this sent me over the moon. We may not have a lot of things or a ton of money but I will gladly live the rest of my life without any of those things, if it means I get to have these people and this amount of love in my life everyday. Really life couldn’t be more perfect then it is right now, everyday I wake up feeling so thankful to be living my dream.
