Happy Mother's Day!

I feel like Mother's and Father's Days are often brushed to the side a lot, and I hate that. Our parents do so much for us, and they rarely ever get a proper thanks. So here's a post dedicated to Mama Brewer, you rock. Prepare for lots of throwbacks.

My mom and I have always had a really neat relationship. My dad travels mainly for work, so Mom and I spend a lot of time together. She's basically a "single parent" during the week, which means carting Avery and me to and from dance and school and feeding us all the time. But some of our best conversations have happened in that Denali, and I think that's why we're so close.

My parents are my biggest support system. This little girl has big dreams, and they're there every step of the way. My mom is always there to take me to the studio for extra rehearsals and drive me out to voice lessons and stay late if when my classes run long. Not to mention photographing, editing, and reviewing all my blog posts and supporting all my endeavors here on BHMM.

I know everyone says this on Mother's Day, but my mom is pretty amazing. She was a Class 1 state winning gymnast at the age of 14. She fought through a major ankle sprain that put her out of the gym, but she hasn't lost any of that gymnast strength. She's in the gym at least three times a week, and boy do I want to look like she does when I'm her age. 

Wow, throwback to the braces

My mom is so beautiful, inside and out. She's a mom to all of my friends and not just us Brewer girls. She's taught Avery and me some of the most valuable lessons we could ever learn, from little tidbit texts to late nights by the fire on our porch. 

Ignore my classic typo

My mom is so strong, she blows me away with her strength. We lost her daddy years ago, and while I don't remember much, I remember how strong my momma was. My dad is rarely home during the week, but she holds through it all, balancing the polar opposites that are my sister and me. She and my dad have the best relationship; they talk every night at 11 no matter the situation or location. I want a relationship like that.

And there's that, just another cheesy Mother's Day post. I'm typing this on mobile Blogger at a UK baseball game sitting right next to her and trying not to cry. I'll end this post by saying, the real thing I want to be when I grow up is just like her.
