Yes, you read the title correctly, I actually managed to stay true to my word and brought back mamas&their babies like I told you I would last week.
Today I would like to share with you a very dear and important person in my life. My mother-in-law Hayes.
What can I say about Hayes other than I love her!
Since the first time I went to WV in 2007 when Will and I had not even been dating for 2 months, Hayes welcomed me into her home with open arms.
There is not much this mama can’t do. She is an amazing cook, baker, gardener, crafter…
She is a wonderful wife, mama, sister and friend. She is a good listener and good advice giver.
If you know Hayes, you know that to know her is to love her.
Hayes might be my mother-in-law and Lily’s avo but, she is more than that. She is my good girl friend too.
I am truly blessed to have someone like Hayes in my life. She is a true inspiration!
