What We Would do Today

As most of you know my mom passed away 2 years ago and seeing as the death of her anniversary is coming up I thought I would use this space this week to dedicate some posts to her. Most of the time this little space of mine is positive but sometimes you just gotta get real and dig down into your emotions. I won't be offended if you just skip past this post because it is sad, trust me I understand.

I was lucky enough to have my mom for 23 years of my life, my sister only got to cherish 16 years of her life with her, but we made every moment count. My mom, sister and I were very close. It may be because we lived in a house of just us 3 and no men. When I look back on the time I had with my mom I really cherish the little moments we had together, but there are a lot of things I wish we could still do or some things that we never did that we wanted to do.

I would go shopping with her at Lilly Pulitzer. She loved this store just as much as I do. The ladies at our local Lilly store knew her by first name and last name and always loved when she came into the store. 

I would watch A Christmas Story all day with her on Christmas Day. This was one of her favorite traditions on Christmas and she knew every single line from that movie.

I would go to a Wake Forest football game with her. She graduated from Wake Forest University and loved the town and the campus. Football homecoming always came around her birthday and we went a few years to celebrate her birthday.

I would do a buttery nipple shot with her. She loved them things!

I would go get a manicure/pedicure with her. That was her treat to herself every once in awhile, she loved getting her nails done and we loved going together.

Mom, I wish you were here so we could do these things; I miss you everyday but I know you are my true angel up in heaven. i love you.

Don't miss a thing ~ Follow along!

What a sweet dedication to your mom! I'm sure she would love to do each and every one of those things with you, and I'm sure she does as your guardian angel! Have a great weekend, Ashley! -xx Leah || Chasing Texas
