Hey everyone! So sorry for being MIA for so long… I was having so many technical difficulties that in fact have STILL not been resolved yet! For now I have resorted to borrowing my husband’s computer while I figure out what’s wrong with mine. But I missed you all so much and I’m back & ready to blog!
This is my wonderful daughter, Tessa. Watch out, I’m a proud mommy and I’m ready to brag! She is 10 years old, and absolutely my bundle of joy. Tessa has been doing gymnastics for three years now at Sugar Land Gymnastics and is already a level 4 gymnast. She has competed in many competitions and won herself the title of beam state champion for her level… STATE. Do you know how big Texas is?!
Now I know everyone has been on top of this Olympics craze lately… Simone Biles has set new records as she has inspired so many young athletes around the entire world. The craziest part? She grew up just 52 minutes from where Tessa is growing up now. Tessa has drawn tons of inspiration from watching the Olympics, and competing at that level one day is her dream. I could not be more proud of the young lady she has become. As a mom, I have had the opportunity to watch my daughter grow as a gymnast and as a person. She is the hardest worker I know. Tessa has OCD in everything she does whether it’s school or sports. She is my little perfectionist! She gets emotional sometimes just watching Simone perform… she eats and breathes gymnastics!
One of the best traits that Tessa carries is her ability to encourage others. She is truly a child of the Lord, always wanting the best for others. I am so proud of what an excellent teammate she is. I watch her get out on the floor at practice every day and cheer for her teammates, rooting for them to do their best AND be the best versions of themselves. I am inspired by my own daughter to be a better person every day.
This shoot was so much fun… It was a perfect mommy-daughter experience where we could both showcase our passions while bringing in the fun nature of summer colors! These were taken at the Sugar & Cloth color wall in downtown Houston. You could just see Tessa’s amazing attitude as well as her love for gymnastics radiating out of her smile!
