Time With My Mom (#322)

This morning I found myself just sitting and talking with my mother. We enjoy kayaking, running, and a number of other things but doing nothing feels just as good. I appreciate the moments where I see how alike we are. The way we curl up with a blanket or tell a story, she’s a huge piece of my support system.

Time at home is special to me. Spending time with my mom is part of that.
