Today, is a very big day in my life. Just fifty years ago today my mother was brought into the world. Which is kind of gross to think about but also very wonderful. I always wonder to myself if this was the life she had imagined. If when she was a little girl she dreamed of having four totally e-dorko children, being a nutty yoga instructor, and being the most wonderful mother and person I could ever imagine having in my life.

I don’t know much about what she has told you all about me but I am pretty weird. Everyone likes to claim that I got my weirdness from my father but to be honest with you, I most defiantly got it from her. Some of my most fondest memories with her may seem very VERY weird to others, but to me they are gifts and blessings that I will cherish forever, Weather it be all of the times she wore her puppy pj’s to the bus stop, having light saber wars in the kitchen, dancing to songs on the radio on the porch, cooking meals from gourmet magazine, and one of my favorites he morning routine from when I was in elementary school. It went like this:

Mom: Everyone wake up!

*ten minutes later everyone is downstairs*

Mom: Today’s musical stylings feature Stevie Wonder. “ISN’T SHE LOOOVELY, ISNT SHE WON-DER-FUL” 

My mother is the best! She never fails to make me feel better. She almost ALWAYS knows what to say and is most of the time right about her advice. She would do anything for her kids and  I love her so much that it makes me emotional. She is simply the greatest person in my life and my best friend in the whole world. 

I celebrate my birthday just four days after hers and can say that one of my best friends is thirty years older than me. 

But she doesn’t look a day over thirty-five. 

I love you to death Mom! 

Stay classy and HAPPY FU*CKING BIRTHDAY!!!



About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
