As a freshman, I’ve yet to experience spending holidays or special events away from home yet. Today marks the first time, as it’s my mom’s birthday today! For the first time in almost 19 years, I won’t be home to wish her a happy birthday in person, or give her her gift on time. It’s certainly a very weird feeling, and as a result, I’m finding myself a little homesick. That being said, Happy 50th Birthday Mom! I know you’ll kill me for posting your real age but I don’t care. Love you!

My wonderful mom and I on my graduation day!
