As you all know I work for a fabulous fashion designer, Michael Kors. This year Michael and his fabulous creative team came up with the most wonderful Mothers Day tribute I have ever seen, A Legacy in Style: Michael & Joan Kors. (Be sure to click the link to check it out. Simply fabulous is the only way to describe it.) Then today he topped it off with the debut of "The Mothers Day Album" on facebook. A few weeks back we were asked at work to submit stores and or pictures about our mothers. I was pretty bummed as I was in Mexico at the time (for work) and wasn't able to submit. Still I wanted to share with you the fabulous tribute that was pulled together at Michael Kors as well as a little something for my Mother.
Dedicated to my amazing mother Sandi...
My mom truly is my hero. She is an extraordinary woman who has been through so much in her life but still manages to always put her kids first and be the best mother that she can be. Before I was born my mother was a Police Officer in Bakersfield, Ca. The very first woman police officer to be exact. At 5'5, 100lbs she truly was tiny but mighty, a spirit which she still processes to this day. There wasn't anything she couldn't do. To tell her no, was something that inspired her to succeed. After getting married and become pregnant with me she quit working on the field and moved inside the police station as a 911 dispatcher. Four years later she had my sister... then shortly after that our world changed. My parents got divorced and my mom became a single mother over night. Over the years she has never lost focus of whats most important to her and that is her children. I never once felt like I was missing out on anything in life as my mother played both the mother and father role perfectly. Fast forward to now; she is a single mother to three wonderful young adults and is still the one person I want to call when something goes wrong and first person I want to talk to when something wonderful happens. She is my rock. I love her so much and I know that I don't tell her that enough, but I do. She has made me the person I am today. We have been through so much and through it all she has show me unconditional love and how to be a strong independent woman; for that I am forever grateful.
I love you mom!!!
