To all of the mothers out there- I hope your day is filled with breakfasts in bed, homemade gifts, massages, beautiful cards, flowers, extra love and lots of spoiling today. You deserve it. WE deserve it. Look at your beautiful babies and significant others and remember how blessed you are. Yes, today we are celebrating us, but what would we be without them? I want to thank my amazing husband for giving me the most wonderful, sweet and precious little boy on the face of the earth. I want to thank both of them for loving me unconditionally and making each of my days filled with love and joy. Sure, today I feel a bit old (What?! I'm a MOM?!) but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I also want to thank the women in my life for being my rocks. My mom- my best friend in the entire world and my other half. The woman whom I hope to be and the mother who I will always strive to be. My step-mom for her powerful and truthful love, a love that was not built by blood but instead by choice and desire. To all of the other mom's in my life- you're amazing. You rock. I love you!
Last but not least, I want to wish my beautiful older sister "labor vibes" - my sweet baby niece has taken up shop and is now 4 days overdue. Sis, happy first Mother's Day! I can't wait for you to hold your little girl in your arms and feel the kind of love that I felt when I first held Reid. You are already an amazing mother and I love you!
