well i don’t know about you,
but i had a lovely mother’s day.


on saturday, while i was out of the house
(spending time with the one and only
B had the kids make me a beautiful “happy mother’s day” banner.
apparently, K colored every single letter
and D took care of the exclamation point.
that was nice of him.


and yesterday, we spent the day at my parents’ condo
(we switch off moms every-other year since 
we are so blessed to have all of our family live so close).

my sis, Aunt WW and 
my brother, Uncle S and 
of course, my mom’s dog, Bella 
joined in on this photo.

we were just missing my other sister, Aunt CC
but she was busy enjoying her very first mother’s day not here
(since she JUST had baby E, two weeks ago).


a lot of delicious food was eaten,


the boys played a game of scrabble,


in which L was a big help,


my sis and i talked 
blog talk, 
design talk, 
career talk, 
life talk.
you know, the usual.


i sported the most beautiful necklace that D made in preschool.
i absolutely
absolutely
adore it.


L got plenty of attention,
don’t you think?


the kids 
played, 
napped, 
swam
and
melted down.
it was perfect.
well, not the melting down part.
but in those moments, 
i try to remind myself that 
they are melting because 
they just can’t possibly 
squeeze one more ounce of fun into their day.
and so they must melt.


and, i got a photo of my little family. 
that’s all i really wanted yesterday,
but i ended up getting a lot, lot more.

My son, keep your father’s commands 
   and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
Bind them upon your heart forever;
   fasten them around your neck.
When you walk, they will guide you;
   when you sleep, they will watch over you;
   when you awake, they will speak to you.
Proverbs 6:20-22

1071. the man who made me a mother
1072. the reminder (everywhere) to be grateful
1073. sermons that leave me saying, “wow.”
again and again and again.
1074. family photos
1075. a busy but calm and lovely, lovely weekend
