Happy Birthday, Nonna! A Tribute to My Mom

This is a special year for my mom. She is celebrating a milestone birthday and it is such a blessing to have her in our lives. I’m dedicating today’s post as a tribute to the woman who gave me life, raised me, and continues to love and support me. She comes from a strong, loving family and she built the same for us.

She has been an incredible mother to me and now that I am one, an awesome Nonna to our son. (Nonna is the Italian word for grandmother and pronounced ‘NOHN-nah.’) She is strong in her faith and has taught us the importance of spirituality.

From “Grandparent’s Day” to every one of our “graduation days” and each important moment in between she is present. My mom is always supporting us or cheering us on! We are so grateful for all of the wonderful years we have enjoyed together and look forward to those ahead.

No matter her age, she is still as fun as I can remember. She is vibrant and full of life. I am grateful for the time our son gets to spend with her and I hope to be this type of memorable parent and grandparent.
