home for the holidays

In less than 9 hours I get to hug my mom! My mom and I are buddies- we're real close. So when her and my dad moved to California, I was bummed to say the least. We talk on the phone daily and she knows every little detail of my life, but it's not the same as getting a mommy hug! The kind of hug that is so tight and familiar and is accompanied by a hum. A hum? Is that weird? Maybe just my family? Anyways, I can't wait to get a hum hug tonight! And the best part is... she's here until New Years! That's a lot of daily coffee shop trips! First we'll make snow angels for a two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookie dough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle (Elf). I'm going to cherish this time together! And I know that I will miss my dad even more when my mom arrives because he doesn't come until Christmas Eve. We will be at Bluejay's Moms house then. So when we wake up on Christmas morning, my favoritest gift I receive will be seeing my dad! Love you guys!
This photo makes me giggle so much! It was a family vacation in Chicago before I got married. Haha!
