My mom is my greatest inspiration and my biggest supporter. Often, we don’t spend much time with our parents after we head off to college. There are small visits that become shorter and shorter as time goes on, and we mainly gather over big holidays and family events. Few people get to experience what my mom and I did in the summer of 2011 when she agreed to travel in Elby the LOVE Bus with me across the country to SPREAD the LOVE!
This was by far one of the best and most memorable times of my life and a really special and incredible time to spend with my mom. Bless her heart, she volunteered (not knowing what she was getting into) to be my co-pilot, and we took off in Elby the LOVE Bus and traveled from Colorado to down to Texas, up to Wisconsin, and then down to Kentucky.
Over the course of 2.5 months, she rallied and passed out samples of LOVE in stores, dolloped yogurt on parfaits at events, and endured all the crazy scenarios and situations that we came across on our adventures in Elby the LOVE Bus. She was more than a trooper…she was my savior. Had I not had her by my side, I am not sure how The National LOVE Tour ever would have happened.
That time together I will cherish more than anything. It was one of the best trips of my life.
Cheers to moms and all the amazing, incredible, and crazy things they do for their kids!
Wishing all of the moms out there a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
