my mom

It is hard to believe that 5 years ago today my mom lost her battle with lung cancer.  I hadn't planned to share this, but it just felt like I should.  I lost my mom way too young. I know too many people who lost parents even younger than I was. I hope some day there is a cure for all of the awful cancers (and other diseases) in the world. 

She was awesome and I miss her every day. She is still the coolest person I've ever met.

My mom hated having her picture taken! She loved taking them and being behind the camera. But this is one I got at my nephew's first birthday party.
