Mother's Day...

Yesterday was Mother’s Day and for me it was a weekend celebration. Festivities included shopping, lunch, my husband’s incredible french toast, sleeping in, watching movies, snuggling, singing, and much, much more. It was a time of family togetherness, sharing love, and celebrating each other. I had a chance to see my family with fresh eyes and this is what I saw:

Brandon, my husband is an incredible father, and my soul mate. He knows the simple things that make all of us happy without even asking. We work together seamlessly to provide a healthy and happy life for our girls. He makes me happy every day and I am thankful we found each other.

Bella is my beautiful, energetic, and independent toddler. She teeters between doing everything on her own and wanting mom to do it for her. She loves her movies, Mo, and bossing her little sister around. She enjoys snuggle time, just the two of us, watching a movie, reading books, or playing games. She is brilliant, creative, and kind. At the tender age of 3 she is already making me very proud.

Maya is my adorable sweet baby girl. She is often in her own little world, singing, playing, oblivious to what is going on around her. She has a fire in her, defiant, and brave. She wants everything done on her terms and lets everybody know if it isn’t. She is serious, contemplative, and curious. It hardly seems possible she is already 1 ½ years old.

This is my family, the people who make it all worth while.  My celebration of being a mother means nothing without them.
