With Mother's Day approaching, it only felt natural to write about how special this day actually is to me. Yes, now that I am a mom to 3 wonderful boys, it makes me appreciate my mom all that much more. Being a mom is hard work and it takes more than having the title, "mom" to actually be a good one. My mom and I have always had a very unique bond. The memories she made for me for when I was a little girl have definitely followed me through the many stepping stones of my life.

Mom definitely made me in to the "girlie-girl" I am today. There was never an outfit worn without matching hair bows. I had toes polished, nails polished, ears pierced and the cutest outfits for that particular time. I have many photos of me in "Easter bonnets", white gloves and adorable patent leather shoes, for all the special occasions.

When those barrettes were in style with the ribbons weaving through, she took the time to learn how to make them for me. And believe me, mom was never and is still not a "domesticated diva". But she tried, and that's all that mattered. When Star Wars was on television one night when I was in elementary school, I wanted to look like Princess Leia. And guess what, she braided my hair and and wrapped them up on each side of my head. When I wanted curly, "crimped" hair, she braided my hair wet and let me go to sleep that way, so the next morning they had that "perfect" wave.

As I grew older, we always went "school shopping" for all the latest trends at the time. Some of them included, "Outback Red", "Forenza", "Gap", "Units", Benetton . . .just to name a few. Do those names bring back memories . . .they sure do for me!

My mom was always there for me to help me look my best . . .homecomings, prom . . .and of course, my wedding. And today, one of our favorite things to do together is, shop.

However, although we loved shopping and she always had me dressing like a "girlie-girl", it was the times we spent together that made me feel extra special. She was never a "hands-off" mom. She always took the time to love me, guide me and spend extra time with me. I honestly feel that little girls need that extra attention from their moms. It builds confidence and "self-worth". And when I think about it now, my mom was truly my very first best friend.

She also gave me a bit of "style knowledge", which I am also thankful for.
