Well, you are officially the first blogger to give me goosebumps. I mean seriously, the stuff about your mom made me tear up but at the same time that list showed your internal strength and the love of your family and that bond. The power of words, seriously...and I would love to talk to you about your labor, not that I am pregnant but if I were I would be so scared to have the baby. Anyways, wow...I feel so honored to have read your post! It was truly spoken from the heart and I know how hard it can be to reach an audience at that level...but I felt a little of you in that post. love, mg

I love pumpkin spice lattes too - and Mexican food :-) (and of course we have babies the same age!!!).

I'm so sorry about your mom - what an incredibly strong woman you are to have dealt with all that. Will is one lucky little boy :-)

I loved reading all that about you, I've often thought about doing a 100 things post too.

Christy said...

I am so sorry to hear about you mom.

Congratulations on making it to 100 posts! I never celebrated any of my big blogging milestones. I am coming up on my 500th post. Do you want to know 500 things about me? No? I guess I'll have to think of some other way to celebrate:)

My favourite colour is green too.

I cannot imagine how hard it was to lose your mum at 21 and at such a young age. She sounds wonderful
