Hello sweet friend! I hope you are having a wonderful week. The weather has been beautiful here the last few days. I feel like after we get through March and most of April, we are in for a treat with the weather before the summer hot wave hits. My husband and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary a day early this evening. We have dinner on the patio at our favorite restaurant planned and then watching our friend play music later this evening. I don’t get out very often in the evenings so I am definitely looking forward to this! This time last year I was very pregnant and swollen and couldn’t really be on my feet very long. Oh how things have changed in a year!
Speaking of being pregnant and children – no I’m not! Today’s post is all about Mother’s Day! It’s already next Sunday, so I thought I would share a few gift options if you are looking. This Mother’s Day will be a special one for me. So much of myself has changed in the last year after becoming a mom of 2. My priorities have shifted, sometimes I have to take a step back and just breathe, things for myself get pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, my children and my family come first. I wouldn’t trade this time for anything right now. There were times when I was a new mother that I was just wishing for the days to go faster, longing for an easier time. This time around, I’m appreciating a baby crawling around the house, how fulfilling it is to see them laugh together, putting food on the table for my family every night and not to sound cliche’ but the overall joy of motherhood. It took a while for me to get there after experiencing my 2nd round of PPD last year, but I can fully say that being a mother to these children is my greatest gift. I feel like the luckiest mama and I know how blessed I truly am.
If you are looking for something special to give your mom/MIL this Mother’s Day, I have rounded up options below. A nice handbag, a family portrait print, a new cookbook, recipe book or robe will all make wonderful gifts!
