Shout out to the two super special and cool people out there whose names starts with M and have a birthday today! Obviously great people are born on May 9th. I love you both and wish you the most fabulous of years. Best friends are hard to come by and I've been blessed to have the same one since I was 3. Who through all our ups and downs in life is still there and like a sister to me.
Today is going to be a beauty of a day (only 40% chance of rain and I only believe when it says 60%). It's going to be warm, warm, warm! I'm sitting here looking at my backyard and the trees are beginning to bloom. I'm feeling very grateful and excited for a warm and lovely Mother's Day. Not sure if you remember last Mother's Day but lovely it was not! Whipping wind and hail is what I remember.
Speaking of Mother's Day. I'm feeling particular grateful right now that I am a mom and that I have such a wonderful mom. Sometimes at the end of the day I look at my children sleeping (the best part of the day all peaceful and beautiful) and my heart feels like it could explode with love. Some days I go to bed and I feel guilty that I didn't do a good enough job. Maybe I got too frustrated or I wasn't patient enough or they didn't have enough fruits and veggies and could have eaten healthier or we should have read more books. I now know that mothering is a tough and complicated job! A wonderful job too! One that does deserve it's own day. A day for us to be reflective of all our mother's do and have done for us and a day to be grateful that we get to be mother's ourselves! I think it's something I need to work on thinking about all the time. Not just now on the eve of Mother's Day weekend. (Yes, I am now declaring it a weekend event).
Mother's Day should also be a day where we are spoiled a bit! I was about to post a bunch of things to be spoiled with but who are we kidding, we all already have several things in mind, right?! I will say this though, Club Monaco and J Crew are particularly rocking it these days. Loving everything in there right now. You can also never go wrong with a trip to Holts! Whatever it is you want for Mother's Day, whether it be time with your family or time alone. A day at the spa or shopping. A beautiful home cooked meal or a meal out. I hope you get it! Along with a clean house, a coffee made for you the moment you get up and some flowers.
