a mother's day.

remember easter? mother's day was reminiscent. only thing missing was the mounds bar (thankfully). 

but my sweet little loves made up for the lack of pictures with a note on some pretty flowers. and some of my favorite snacks.

mother's day really is just like any other day of the year, life goes on. I woke up with a sore throat and some head congestion, we didn't make it to church, and I stayed in bed most of the morning. the start of the day made me want to just stop and ask if we could just "reschedule." thankfully, as the day went on I did feel better and we were able to enjoy some time out as a family and picked up sushi for dinner on our way home.

babies don't stop for holidays and I want to soak up all the goodness of that, even if that means I don't get just the right picture that makes it look "perfect."

mothers day, for me, is more of an opportunity to think on and be grateful for what the moms in our lives have invested into us. that we wouldn't be where we are today if it weren't for these women.

to my mom, thank you for raising me and teaching me about the Lord. thank you for showing me what it means to have an open home and loving people. so now, as I have my own home, can do the same.

to my mother in law, thank you for raising your boy so well. and for many years of patient investment into his life even during many rough years.

to both our moms, thank you for changing countless diapers, reading hundreds of books, giving hugs and kisses, baths, and meals. thank you for driving us and putting up with us when we learned to drive you. for loving us no matter where we were at and who we were. for encouraging us to pursue an education and go to college. for standing by us when we joined our lives together and embracing each of us in our new families. for loving our girl, as we now have the privilege of following in your footsteps as parents. we love you both, so very much, and can never repay you for all you have done for us.
