Celebrating Mother’s Day

DSC_7675
I celebrated Mother’s Day a little early with my mom and grandma. They each got to choose a gorgeous watch from Obaku and they tolerated me taking a few photos of them. This was a few weeks back at my mom’s and I photographed her in her element: out back with the horses. Indy is her little baby!
To be honest, we didn’t have the best relationship growing up and once I moved on to college, it became a lot easier. I was so resentful and could only focus on the past, the things I couldn’t change. Once I moved away, I felt more in control of my own life and could make my own decisions, things that made me happier and allowed my mom and I to have a better relationship. Now, she’s pretty much the only person I want to travel with and I call her at least once a day to bug her. We’re heading to Nashville in a few weeks to be old ladies together like visiting the zoo on a non-weekend day to avoid children, go to bed by 9 p.m., be up by 6 a.m. and eat all the food.

My grandma, Cecilia, is such a beautiful and strong woman. She and my grandpa visited a couple weeks ago and I surprised her with an Obaku watch that she just loved.  Don’t let her soft look fool you. My grandma is someone you just don’t fuck with. I respect her tenacity, independence and most importantly, her constant support whether I was venturing off to MSU as a first-generation college student or making career mistakes–she’s there for me no matter what.
