dear moms, ('cause they're way cooler than boys)

Mom,
I probably don't tell you enough how much I love you and how grateful I am for everything you do. Dishes, meals, shopping trips, birthdays, holidays, you name it- you do it. I will forever be impressed. I couldn't ask for a better mom.

I love you,
Elise


Grandma Frederickson,
You are the most poised, wonderful, talented woman I know. And you have a kind, genuine way of making people feel special. I love you and all that you do for our family.

Love,
Elise

Grandma, 
We've never met in real life, because you died the day I was born. But I know that somewhere in between heaven and earth, we met. I'm sure we partied, went shopping, and you must have taught me how to sew. ;) I have no doubt that even though you are not here on earth, you are very much a part of my life and I will always be grateful for that. 

Love,
Elise

Kristen,
Besides being my 'Ma' on trek, you really are like a second mother to me. I've always looked up to you an incredible amount. I'm so grateful for the example you have been to me and for the irreplaceable friendship you have always given me.

Love,
Elise


I know you've only been a mom for 8 weeks, but watching you and talking to you throughout your pregnancy and through these first months has been so much fun for me. And I've learned so much from you. The way you adored your baby from the first kick and the pure love you show Charlie now is such an example to me and makes me want to be a mommy some day.

Love,
Lise


You will probably never know how much of an influence you have had on me, but I am seriously in awe every time I listen to you talk about your darling children and see you work so hard to be the best mom you possibly can. Really, I look up to you so much. And I have always appreciated how honest and genuine you are about your struggles with raising your children. It gives me hope, because I see how amazing you are. 

Love,
Elise



To my favorite mommy bloggers,
Nina, Ashley, Ashley, and Meg

Reading about your adventures, challenges, joys, and struggles makes me want to be as awesome of a mom as you some day. You'll probably never know how much you truly do inspire me. 

Love,
Your favorite blog-stalker, Elise.
