Ever since I was a kid, I have always loved special days like Mother’s Day, giving thanks and showing appreciation for the woman who gave birth to me but more importantly who has had to put up with my cheeky behaviour as a kid, my outspoken teenage years (in a political way) and then young adulthood. Lord, seriously give her strength! Haha! My mum means the world to me, she is all the family the I have (apart from my gorgeous husband of course – the reste of my family lives in Portugal and France). Without this woman, I would not be able to achieve and do everything as a good wife would be able to do. She has helped me out financially, she looks after my fur babies every day when I’m at work and she’s there for me when I’m having a real hard time with IVF and gives me all the support and strength. I would be lost without my beautiful mama. So mama, I love you  more than you could ever imagine, you are my world. Happy Mother’s Day! xoxox

Mama, I love you xoxox
