The Best Mother's Day!

We started the night out a little rocky as Rosemary didn't want to sleep late Saturday/early Sunday so we were up until 4:45am on Mother's Day. Man, those nights are rough!

Other than the lack of sleep, my first Mother's Day was truly so special.

We went to my parents for breakfast and to hang out with my Mom for a bit followed by going to my husbands parents for dinner. While it was a pretty busy day and I was tired, I feel extremely blessed to have my daughter and family in my life.

I was lucky enough to receive a couple beautiful cards from Rosemary and my husband, as well as some flowers and cupcakes too! After Rosemary was in bed I had a nice glass (or two) of red wine while we watched a movie and I even had time to write Rosemary a little letter. :)

As you can tell, my day was pretty perfect. We made it to see all the family and I even had some down time at the end of my day. A wonderful day in the life of any Mother! Hope everyone else had a great day too!


  1. Pics are adorable! Happy belated Mothers day! :)

    PS. I completely forgot to write you back about being in MI. Sorry! Anyway we were in Grand Rapids half the time and also a small city called Ithaca the other half. The plane ride was so much easier then I thought it was going to be that's for sure. Thanks for asking! :)

  2. Happy Mothers Day to you too! Hope it was a great one!

    No worries about getting back. Life happens. :)

    Glad it was easier than you'd thought!

  3. I found you through the D-List and I'm now a follower :) Wine is the best way to wind down from a long day, especially if it's Mother's Day! I did a bit of that myself.

  4. Dear friend, I thought of you yesterday with the intention of coming here to wish you a wonderful 1st Mothers Day. I am sorry my wishes come today. Rosemary is a spitting image of you -what a beautiful and sweet child you have!
    You both have the happiest smile.
    Thank you for your very kimd comments. Thank you.

    Hang in there~the sleep thing will come. :)

    Happy late Mothers day to you. Looks like your day was filled with many fond memories and smiles!

  5. No Mother's Day is complete without time with family! Good to hear you were able to make it around to see everyone. This is the first year we have been too far away to visit. =( But we did get and make a lot of phone calls!
    Sounds like you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
