In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday I figured who better to feature on this week’s interview other than my own mother! This interview is not enough to show how amazing my mom is. My mom has given me her all. She has taught me everything I know today. She has raised me to become the best woman I can be. She shows me unconditional love and for that, I will be forever grateful. I love you, mom!

  1. I tried to comment on this earlier but my stupid WordPress was acting up again but luckily they seem to have fixed it!

    It is so sweet that you decided to interview your mum for mothers day! Her advice is so good too- I think sometimes it’s easy to forget that even after having a baby you’re still you and you need to take some time to relax and enjoy yourself. You also look a lot like your mum especially in the 2011 picture!

  3. It’s not WordPress if it’s not acting up lol! Hope your problem got fixed too.

    Haha you definitely deserve it! I honestly can not even imagine how difficult it must be to have a young child to take care of with everything going on.

  4. Yeah I’m sure you would love to take him out more often and be able to go places with him. Hopefully it will get safer soon to go out and you’ll be able to explore more with him.
