Happy Mothers Day!


Today I want to dedicate a post to my mother for mother's day. I am so lucky to be able to call such a strong, beautiful and inspiring woman my mother. She has always been an incredible role model, being strong willed and determined to reach the lofty goals she sets herself. She has also been a wonderful example in a world obsessed with beauty - never dying her hair, and rarely wearing make-up, she taught me early on that I am beautiful the way God made me. I have always looked up to her and will continue to admire her generous spirit and unwavering ambition.
Happy Mothers Day mum!




And just by the by - is this photo of mum with dad on his graduation day not the BEST thing you have ever seen?
