It’s no coincidence that Mother’s Day falls right in the middle of Spring. It’s a beautiful time during which we celebrate the most beautiful women. To us children, mothers seem to defy age. They live within the eternity of their undying love for us. At least that’s how I view mine. She is the eternal candle guiding me through the tough realities of life. Mom, to me you are timeless.
♥ I know it may be cliche to say that you’ve always supported me, and would do anything for me, but it’s true and I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have someone like that.
♥ I know, being your first child, you worry about the choices I make, but please know that I’ve been watching and learning from you my whole life and you’ve been nothing short of inspiring.
♥ Don’t be afraid of where my life takes me because the examples you’ve set have nourished me at every crossroad I’ve come to, and have made me unafraid to take risks.
♥ But know, that I’m only unafraid because I have you to turn to when times get hard.
Mom, you are the one I look up to when I’m searching for the woman I hope to be, and I cherish both your love and your friendship! So, in honor of the most beautiful woman I know, here is my version of the Ultimate Beauty Berry Smoothie to celebrate that glowing Mama in your life!
I have to admit, this is not your everyday, quick & easy smoothie recipe, but, if you’re looking for that, check this one out! No, this is something that takes a little extra time and care, because after all, hasn’t Mom always done that for you? There’s a good blend of fruits, veggies, and protein in here to keep you feeling good all day. Seriously, I’ve been making this, or a version of this for myself almost everyday for the past few weeks. So. Damn. Good. It’s really great after a workout and will keep you full until dinner. My NutriBullet (that my awesome Mama got me for Christmas last year) literally is the greatest thing I own. And no, I was not paid to say that. I just absolutely love the thing, especially since I’m not quite ready to splurge on a Vitamix. Anyway, here’s the smoothie that will super power your beauty routine!
