dear mom:

dear mom: i love you.
a lot.

coming home to utah is always a treat.
but, spending time with my mom is an even a bigger treat.
we are best friends.
being away from her is tuff, but it isn't until i'm with her
that i really realize just how much i miss her while i'm away.
we are the same person.
i love that about us.
we have the same taste, love the same things,
buy the same treats, laugh the same way, do the same things.
we have a unique relationship. 
i'm so lucky to have such a close friendship with her.
certainly, she is my mom;
she provides guidance, advice and motherly love.
but, she is my best friend.
i tell her my deepest secrets, and she tells me hers.
we have a whole week of just us.
{lovebird is still home working and taking his finals.}
we can finally go to lunch together, run errands together,
shop until we drop {which we already have done}, sit on the couch and chitchat,
read our books together, and drink our diet cokes.
all without having miles between wishing we were closer.
it will be a week free of texting and phone calls because we'll be face to face. 
it's going to be a good week. 
however, any week is a good week when your with your mom.


  1. Moms are the best! Enjoy your time with yours. xo.

  2. I love it when I get to spend one on one time with my mom, it's kind of hard to come by sometimes, but I think it just makes it that much sweeter. I feel so lucky that I can call my mom my best friend.

  3. ahhh. i'm so jealous. i would love to have just a week with my mom, but i still have little siblings at home, so when i go home its not the same. lol. moms are just the best, i still call my mom at least 2 times a day. minimum. glad i'm not the only one.


  4. Sometimes, the worst part of being a "grown up" is not being close to my mommy. We live hours and hours away, too, and weekends home or meeting up somewhere are so precious. Have fun.

  5. I have the same kind of relationship with my mom =) I love spending time with her!

  6. you made me miss my mom! I know that feeling, I have that kind of relationship with my mom too...so enjoy your week together!

  7. I feel the same way about my Mom! Make sure you tell her :)

  8. thanks for stopping by! love your blog, and your post about your mom( i feel the exact same way about my mom). aren't moms just the best? we are lucky girls!

  9. Enjoy your week with her! Living 600 miles away from my mom & best friend too! I know exactly how you feel! xo

  12. this is sweet. mom's are the best! i love mine a lot too :)

  13. Moms are legit. Living far away from them is no bueno. My Pops speaks sometimes in your ward. He's in the high council. Brother Rydalch. Wears a pimp suit & is a funny guy. I mentioned that I read your blog & he knew who you were. He called you the ballerina. Anywho...glad you're having fun with your mama.

  14. aren't mom's the best! my mom doesn't live nearby either and it just makes time spent together that much more awesome. love it. thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! you & the hubs are super cute!

  15. I get to spend some time with my mom soon too :)
    Hope you are well lovely!

  16. So sweet. I wish I had that sort of relationship with my mom. I love my mother-in-law though!

  17. I really realize how I miss my mom while I'm away too. When I went to college, I just appreciated her.
    Now, when I'm at family home, I want to spend all my free time just with her ;)
    She is so good person.
    We are so lucky have a so amazing mums .

    Thanks for your visit on my blog ;)
    Your blog is so pretty, I'm new follower now ;>

    Have a really good week. xo

  18. I'm so glad you are so close to your mom. I am super close to my mom too...luckily though, she lives only 20 minutes away and I get to see her every day. I'm pretty blessed in that regard!

  19. Ahhh love this posts! Moms are truly the best!

  20. Ah i love this.. I'm the exact same way with my mom. so cute.

  21. I know exactly how you feel, being far away from your mom and being so close to her emotionally. Oh man, it's so tough. We got each others' backs! xoxo

  22. This is beautiful. I only live across the city from my mother but sometimes two weeks can pass before we see each other. Texts and calls are great but there's nothing better than being in the same room as your mama bear x

  23. I love this! I got to see my Mom yesterday - she is my best friend right after my husband.
