I was interviewed a few weeks ago and asked to describe my mom in celebration of Mother’s Day. Of all the words that embody my mother’s spirit, wickedly adventurous, beyond genius smart, impressively determined, the thing I wanted to stress the most was how much she inspires me. She lives in Greece (on an olive farm where she makes her own olive oil (seriously)), so we don’t get to talk very much, and yet pretty much everything I do is because I hear my mom’s voice in my head telling me that I can accomplish anything I want if I set my mind to it. Besides for being and feeling loved, there is nothing more valuable than that feeling. So since I don’t get to say it very often, thank you mom, for making me believe. I love you and Happy Mother’s Day.
