I hope all my mama friends had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

Mine was lovely.

Waffles, cuddles, playtime and books, sweet cards from the babies, a beautiful necklace, chocolates, and time to paint my nails…


…a long shower, a few moments to organize my craft area a bit… and a delicious home-cooked dinner (I cooked it. But I love to cook. And my sweet husband did the dishes, as always, which I appreciate every day he’s home).


…but mostly, spending a quiet day with the three people I love most in the world, all together… was the most wonderful thing.

Topher, my best friend, my awesome partner in life, and the most wonderful co-parent.

Anneliese, who I had wanted for as long as I can remember, who made me a mama, and who continues to make my heart grow every day.

Joseph, who I’m just getting to know, but who has always belonged in our family, and who I love fiercely and deeply already.

I couldn’t have asked for a better Mother’s Day.

  1. It truly is the simple things that make us smile. I too, made our dinner on Mother’s Day, but I love to cook as well. I am happiest when my husband and kids are all seated around our table, enjoying conversation and laughs together, while I cook. 🙂

  2. I totally agree. We had a laid back & low key day of family and yard work, and it was perfect. 🙂 Glad to see you had a great day!

  3. Your baby has a black diaper? That is so unexpectedly awesome! Kind of like the baby equivalent of Ray-Bans B-)

  4. It’s the simple things we mothers enjoy about this day. My children are grown now and my eldest will be a first time mother in August and I love that I now get to watch my child have her own child. Mothering, never ending greatness.
