HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Hello to all you Mothers, Mothers-to-be, and to any lady who has ever made a difference in the life of a child!

That was quite the intro and beautiful one at that! Sorry for the lack of posts:( I've been a little down to to a certain aunt flo (I stole that from Kelli and thought it was too perfect, hope you don't mind Kelli?) and my motivation to do anything has been...umm...nonexistant..lol! I'm slowly making a comeback so today I just wanted to give a shout-out to the ladies who I think have the hardest (and most rewarding:) job on the planet! I was not able to see my mom or my mother-in-law today so it was a simple phone call today! I'm planning on taking my mom for lunch when we will be visiting. Yet, I wish I was bringing her a cake or something! Hope you had a lovely visit with your mumzies or if you are a mother, got a little pampering:)

It was just my Mom and me growing up. I've never met my Dad and he doesn't know I exist (this is a story for another time). As you can imagine, I'm very close to my Mom and it's almost to the point where we can finish each others sentences. I am also very blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-law who I consider to be my "second mom." There are so many other women in my life who are such giving and selfless mothers and I am so grateful to be around their good influences!

Here are a few picts of my 2 moms!








Have a wonderful rest of your day and I'll be back again soon, I promise!!

I love your mother's day post-so lovely!
And you are so beautiful, absolutely stunning. I love all of your pictures. I agree with you about mothers- definitely the hardest job on the planet. It seems like you have two(!) great moms, and I hope you had a good mother's day. Not sure if you got to spend it with either of them, but all the same...
I also hope you're feeling better soon, but don't worry about posting. Crazy aunt flo comes to visit all of us.

Kudos to your mother for single-handedly raising you! As a mom I can barely pull it together and I have someone who helps out from time to time (my hubby). You are a very good daughter for appreciating your awesome mother. And you are also gorgeous!!
