In less than a week I will be travelling to Minneapolis to participate in my mother's wedding. As this occasion draws closer with each passing day, I find myself with many different emotions: happiness, disbelief, sadness, relief, excitement, nostalgia, and much more.
It has been 24 years of my life with just mom and myself. Yes, there have been different people floating in and out, but it's always been the Larsen girls. Well, until I became a Rademacher, that is. Now the end of this journey is coming to a close. My mom will no longer be "just mom" but will be someone's wife. A wife to a great guy, don't get me wrong!
I am so happy for her and am very glad that she'll have someone to share her life with. It's just that there are some fleeting moments when I wish I could travel back in time when it was just us girls, eating popcorn and milkshakes, watching an old musical, and snuggling on the couch.
I love you, mom.
