To everyone who gave me tips on how to throw a surprise party.
To all of you who helped keep it under wraps until we walked into the room.
To everyone who sent DMs wishing Momma Job a Happy Birthday since she doesn’t have her own IG😂.
To all of you who took the time to celebrate with us.
To @g.m_rosado for making such a special video to share with her on her special day.
To @lushlayers for the custom cupcake favors 🧁 .
I’m so thankful for this lady right here. If anyone deserved to have a day of having everyone pour love out on her, it is definitely my mom. She is constantly showing up for the people around her. She’s always there for our family and has become “Momma Jo” to so many others.
When I told her I was leaving my super stable fancy nonprofit job to go back to grad school and start a business, she fully supported me. Heck, she works out with me😂 She taught us to go big and that we can always come home (but that she fully expects us to succeed). She knows way too many Kanye songs and can rap with the best of them. She loves being a mom but I’m pretty sure she loves being a grandma even more. She is definitely one of a kind and I’m so happy she’s my mom😍
Let me tell y’all, she is NOT an easy one to surprise. It took a lot of work to convince her to even go to the restaurant (up until a half hour before we were supposed to leave😱). Super thankful her bestie captured the moment we walked into the room (SWIPE through all the pictures to see the video😍). I’m pretty sure we were all in tears.
It was a blast celebrating this incredible lady and I’m SOOO looking forward to doing it again next week with the rest of the Richardson familia in sunny Florida☀️ 🌴 Orange Lake, The Fam is coming back 🎉
