Happy Mother's Day!

Since today is Mother's day, I wanted to share a few things about my mom, Mary. My mom is a Taurus and I'm an Aquarius- lets just say that we've had our disagreements over the years. But my mom is still one of the closest people to me in my life. I admire her generosity, sacrifices and warmth. She is a caretaker and has instilled in me many of her own wonderful traits. Because of my mom, I have a love for shih-tzus and animals of all kinds (cats, birds, deer, you name it). She taught me how to tie my shoes and find a great deal. Some of the things I love to do with my mom is shop for antiques and as we say "thrift". I also like to play Scrabble with her, take walks and watch Steeler games. I get my fair skin, Irish roots, creativity, motherly instincts and compassion from my mom. I love her very much!

Here are a few things about my mom:

My mom is the youngest of 3. She says she wasn't an accident but a surprise.

She doesn't drive! Growing up, we took the bus around Pittsburgh.

She is the least envious or jealous person I know. I have never seen her be materialistic or greedy.

She isn't clingy. Like me, she enjoys time to herself. She always taught me to never chase boys and let them come to you. lol!

My mom had me in her late 30s. We have a bit of a generational gap. She doesn't use the computer and barely knows how to navigate the remote control.

My mom loves to play the lottery and gamble. I like to think that when I win things, my luck is from her.

My mom likes to write poetry and always sends letters, cards and thank you notes. I get my creativity, writing ability, vocabulary and manners from her!

I still call her Mommy!

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
