a few things of importance (or not)

I love having my mom here for Mother's Day.

I always try to give her a special gift, that I have made myself. This year it is a necklace and a bracelet.

Way back when I was little I loved picking flowers for her.

Lilacs were the flowers that my father would cut for her on Mother's Day. As far as I remember he did that every year.

Before I became a mother myself I picked a light green sofa. - Can you imagine?!

I've always wanted to be a mom.
It is much tougher than I thought it would be.

It is much more rewarding than I expected, too, I mean, really, check out the breakfast in bed I got last year!

To all the awesome women in my life, I wish you all a very happy Mother's Day, Moms or not!


  1. Happy mom's day! It seems you have a great, great loving family!!

    Hope you had a magical Mother's Day...

  5. What a sweet post. I would agree that mothering is WAY harder than I thought. And so much more rewarding than I thought...Glad you enjoyed your day.
