Quote of the Week: "I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life." -Abraham Lincoln
This Mother's Day is bittersweet for me, it's the first one I will ever be celebrating away from my mommy. My mom and I are extremely close, everything I am I owe to her and my dad and they have been with me literally every step of the way. They still are, but now from a little over 2,000 miles away. This week's inspo post is dedicated to the mamas!
What I'm Listening To: "A Song for Mama" by Boyz II Men A classic, if this one doesn't make you emotional, you might need to check your pulse...
What I'm Reading: "Song of Solomon" by Toni Morrison. Another one of my awesome Goodwill finds, this is the coming-of-age story of Macon "Milkman" Dead, as it explores the complicated familial relationships taking place in 1930's North Carolina (where my mom's family is from). Vivid and captivating, Toni Morrison did not disappoint with this complex tale.
