I am so proud of my mom!!

Living, Loving, Cooking

Today I want to dedicate my blog post to my mom, who today became a BLOGGER!! I am so proud of her for taking the plunge. You see, she is the real writer in this family. For reals. (hahaha, she would never say that!) But seriously, she taught me everything I know. She has never stopped seeking out happiness. She has never let life get the best of her (for too long anyway!). She is a writing instructor, a certified cake decorator, a culinary student, writer, wife, mother, grandmother (sorry for calling you out mom!), sister, and great friend, in no particular order. I don’t know how she finds the time.

I’m so glad that she’s writing again, and doin’ it out loud! I love you mom – happy blogging!!

So go check her out her inaugural post ya’ll! And make sure to go back for more, because she has a lot of amazing stories to tell!

    Yae, Mom! My guess is she never stopped writing but there’s something all together different about the peace in closing a journal and the anxiety just before hitting “Publish” (NaBloPoMo ~ Yikes!) so I commend her.

      Well, she did stop writing much, but you are so totally right! She was very nervous to hit “publish!” Thanks for stopping by Sabrina!

    I’ve just read through what she’s posted. Beginning to End just made me cry. Just a little. I was on the verge anyway. Still…added her to my list of must reads :).

      Jane, thank you for reading and adding her. I’m so excited for her to share her writing with the world. She is truly amazing! I can’t wait to see her journey unfold!
