Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. I want to post some of my favorite photos of my mother today, before Mother’s Day. Why? To remind people that while being a mother is a wonderful thing for many women, it does not define what it means to be a woman. 

Our mothers are so much more than just being our moms. They had their own ideas, hopes, and dreams before our conception. It’s possible we were one of their dreams, yet presumptuous of us to assume we made them all they are.

So here are some of the photos of my mother not being a mom. Just being a girl and woman. A separate person, of value just being her.

I love you Mom.
