At this point we didn’t know we’d become best friends and the greatest adventure partners ever. We didn’t know we’d make each other laugh until we cry even when no one else thinks it’s as funny as we do. We didn’t know we’d be each other’s support system. What I’ve always known is that I’m so lucky to be your daughter. Happy Mother’s Day to the most amazing person I know @dmckeeman 💕
