The day started off with a grateful day off from early church leadership meetings for Jacob...which meant blueberry coffee cake for me. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the sunlight pouring through the windows. The sun was surely shining in salutation to Mother's everywhere today :)
We had a really nice time at our church meetings - where the men hosted a luncheon following the meetings in honor of the ladies. After a nice lunch and good conversation, we came home and all four of us took a two hour nap. Have I ever mentioned how yummy a nice long Sunday nap is since having children? It is divine. (Lucky for me, since Sawyer still takes a two-hour nap most days, I try to sneak a couple of naps in with my two babes during the week as well :)
Dinner tonight was home-made brick oven style pizza, a caprese salad (my fave) and topped off with Red Velvet Cake and Ice Cream. There were flowers. There was a gift certificate to pick out a summer dress. There were lots of hugs, kisses, and giggles. Today, I truly felt celebrated.
But, to be quite honest, I am lucky enough to have a family that makes me feel celebrated most every single day. Although, most days I don't beg Jacob to take photos of us...like I did tonight. I told him to grab the camera while I had both kidlets in my arms - because I wanted to preserve just a little bit of now. I told him it should be a tradition to always have a photo of me and my babies on Mother's Day. He said, "don't we have that tradition for most holidays...and some non-holidays?"
I just smiled.
Happy Mother's Day to all!
