lucky girl. that's me.

I hope you all had a Mother's Day weekend full of family, love and whatever else it is that makes your heart happy. Mine was fun and relaxing, the perfect combo. It was also overflowing with hugs, kisses, and two-year-old cuteness. {see below for evidence}

Yard sale-ing on Saturday yielded this beauty of a Mother's Day present which I am head over heels in love with ♥

Today we had great visits with both of our mamas and then spent a quiet afternoon at home. Dinner consisted of porterhouse steaks and grilled eggplant...fabulicious.

I also learned today that we'll be taking a mini family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge for a few days at the end of June {thank you mom and dad!}

It's my third Mother's Day and I still sometimes feel like I'm winging it. Intense is the only way to sum up motherhood, though we all know it is so much more than just one word. It is love, fear, hope and a million other pieces to a puzzle that are all contained in this little person we created. A person whose embrace has the power to make your heart smile and cry simultaneously.

I never truly knew the depth of love until I met you, Matty. Before you, I was searching. I questioned who I was, what I wanted, where I was going, but now I know where I am is the only place I ever really wanted to be.
