happy birthday mama

today would have been my sweet mama's 56th birthday.
and in a few short weeks we'll be looking at the 8th year since she left us.

sometimes my brain can't fully comprehend the fact that she's gone.
like HOW have i survived this?

and so today, i'm choosing to celebrate her beautiful self.
that pretty smile.
those awesome hugs.
and that contagious laugh.

we went to smallcakes and got us a box of cupcakes.
i'm either celebrating or self-medicating lol.

happy birthday mama. 
love you forever and always.
