I’ve always been a mama’s boy and I don’t have any shame in saying it. My mom truly is my best friend & my number one fan. I’m the luckiest son in the world to have her. Whether it was rinsing my mouth out with tabasco sauce when I would cuss, or forcing me to return a dead starfish I stole from my 1st grade class to my teacher and apologize (true story) she brought my brother and I up the right way, and we both turned out alright. I’m so proud of her perseverance. She has suffered a lot of loss in her life, and she is one tough cookie. I love her so much and I can’t wait to spend this #mothersday with her!

I’m so incredibly grateful for how supportive she is of my career, and how she’s able to keep my stubbornness in check and calls me out like nobody else! ? Looking forward to what’s ahead, hurry home so we can celebrate! Love ya!

The #covid19 news cycle has been incessant, and constantly evolving. When I feel burned out, I remember to be thankful I still have a job to show up to every day when so many others don’t through absolutely no fault of their own. Here’s to hoping this is all over soon, I think we’re almost there! ??
