Today I graduated college after a 10 year journey. But that’s not what this post is about. This post is dedicated to my children. My three gorgeous and amazing children.

My babies:

I want you to know that you can do whatever you want. The world is at your fingertips every minute of every day. You are the only person stopping yourself. It doesn’t matter how long it takes – if you truly want to do something, do it. You have all the power in the world to be the best you can be and do whatever it is that you want to do. My goal to graduate from college was a personal goal, but by accomplishing something I set out to do so long ago, I hope you learned that you can also do whatever it is you want in life. I hope you learned that the journey is always worth it, even if it doesn’t always go as planned. I hope you remind yourself that you can do anything; be anything. You three are my pride and joy in this world and I am beyond lucky to be your mother. I enjoyed graduation so much but I enjoyed it even more knowing that the three of you were looking up to me and so proud of your mom.

To my Hailie: I know that you are going to change the world. You are smart, driven, and have the biggest dreams. Go after every one of them. You can do whatever you want to do.

To my Aubree: My fearless little girl. You have that, I don’t care what people think attitude and you go after everything you want. I hope you keep that spirit as you continue to grow up and achieve your dreams.

To my Chace: Though you are only three months old you are so happy. I know that just like your sisters, you too will do big things.

I am so proud of the three of you and so lucky to call you mine. If you ever have doubts, mom is always here to remind you that you are amazing, smart, loved, and that you can achieve anything and everything you set out to do.

I love you my babies.
