To Mom, with love. Happy Birthday!

Today is my mothers birthday and I decided to get her something special, a portrait by no one other than my best friend Derek Santiago. When he sent me the outcome he had me crying happily on the train because it looks just like her. He is such an amazing artist and really took the love I have for my mother and put it into this portrait. My mother deserves the world and so much more. Birthdays come and pass but my mother hasnt aged a second, she is still free-spirited, fun, open-minded, smart, and as beautiful as she has always been. I love you so much and I appreciate you. Thank you for being the best mother in the world. Brittany and I love you so much.

Ugh this pic is so beautiful. Notice the name plate, it’s a vintage font!!

My mom in the vintage dress I bought her. I love this picture of her, It was a great choice as a portrait.

Thank you Derek ❤
