mother's day

All I ever wanted in life was to be a mom. I played dolls until I was probably too old to. After dolls, I daydreamed about my family until the day I had my own. I am dead serious when I say it's all I've ever wanted.

While I love Mother's Day as a way to honor my mom I don't feel as if I need it for myself. My dream in life has come true and yes while it's insanely hard at times, I don't need a thank you or a special day. My thank yous lie in my children's eyes and smiles. It lies within their little hugs and kisses. Or when my husband comes home after a hard day and looks around and sees a clean home and our children all still alive ;) Those are my thanks yous. And while I might not see them everyday in the moments that I do I treasure. 

And in true mom fashion I spent the day at the baseball field watching my fav #14 do his thing along with a bunch of amazing mothers. 

It really does take a village and I have a pretty great one :)

I hope all the mothers out there had a great day!


  1. Happy belated Mother's day my friend! Love the birth photos!
