My mom, my friend

Happy Mother’s Day! And a special happy mother’s day to the best mom ever! Yes, of course I am talking about my mother! :) Everyone thinks they have the best mom and I think they should think that but seriously, my mom is the best! Growing up and even now I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this…“I wish I had a mom like yours” or… “I want to be just like your mom.” Well, I too wish I was just like my mom. She is everything I want to be. She is always there to listen and help whenever I need her. She is the most selfless woman I know. So loving and giving to others- she has the sweetest heart. My mom has taught me what it truly means to put the Lord first. She is so strong and has so much faith. On top of all that she is BEAUTIFUL, so much fun and has so much energy!!! One thing I love about my mom is that she keeps such a clean house! Growing up and even now I love coming home because of that. Everything is so organized and clean. You can’t help but feel happy in my parents home. Drop by their house anytime and you’ll see what I mean :) Another one of my favorite qualities my mom has is that she is so genuine. She truly loves and cares about everyone. She is the perfect person to talk to when you need advice and the perfect person to be around when you are feeling down. I can only hope that one day I will be half the mother my mom is. I love you mom!

Our one year anniversary!

Well tomorrow is our one year anniversary! I can’t believe it has already been a year. It really went by fast. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband who took me to the temple to be sealed together for time and all eternity. Can I just say that I love being married? I love falling asleep and waking up to my best friend everyday. I love being Mrs. Borland and saying “yeah, that’s my husband.” I love just hanging out and laughing. I love being able to cry on his shoulder whenever I am sad. I love that we are starting a family together. I really am married to the best guy. David is always so sweet to me and is always making me feel so beautiful and loved. He really is my best friend and a great example to me in so many ways. There is no one in this world that I would rather be with forever. David Brady Borland, I love you!!!
