I'm exposing you to my geek-tastic younger self so I can share this picture of my mom. I can't believe she's been gone for almost 15 years. This was taken at my high school graduation party. I was so anxious to be at college, but I remember how happy she was to see me every time I came home. I remember how she hugged me when I finally got out of bed, saying how great it was to have me there. Miss you, Mom.
