A Special Mother's Day

As the day is starting to end I hope everyone had a beautiful mother's day, I know I did. Last year of course was special because it was my first one, however, this year was also a special year because I got to spend it with my mom for the first time in 8 years! Yup you read that right. The why and how behind it is a long story and best be saved for another post. Being only 4 1/2 hours away helped bring us together! I love my mom and was happy that we could spend the weekend and part of today together.

Me with my mommy!

On Saturday we went to the Botanical Gardens in Memphis. It was a gorgeous day (not to hot and with a cool  breeze). It was so gorgeous out I got sunburn and didn't even feel it! Ha! My mom took some great pictures of the flowers and some awesome and memorable family pics! Logan had so much fun, especially playing in the section they call "My Big Backyard"! We had fun watching him take it all in, walking the gardens, and feeding the coy fish!



Today we spent Mother's Day at home relaxing and waiting for our new washer and dryer to be delivered. It was bittersweet because we weren't friends and family in NJ but we were with my mom and sister. Logan "got" his mommy a much needed jewelery box and Daddy picked up some of Giada's new line at Target. I was stoked because I love Giada De Laurentiis!


The best gift of all though, today, and everyday, since the day my baby was born is my baby. Without him I would not be celebrating this day as a mommy.  He makes my life so much brighter and fills my heart with so much joy. He said "Momma" first and his eyes light up whenever I walk through the room and that makes my day no matter how bad or good.  If I had to do it all over again I would and I wouldn't change a thing. Being on bedrest while I was pregnant made me appreciate life so much more and showed me the true meaning of a mother's love (even before her baby is born).  When I held him and looked into his eyes I knew unconditional love and that is the greatest gift a mother could ever get! I love him more than life (as I think every mother loves her child(ren). Thank you Logan for choosing me to be your mommy. I am very thankful! ♥ Mommy
