cornflake dreams.: my first Mother's Day.

my first Mother's Day.

What a wonderful weekend! It was my first Mother's Day and it's one that I'll never forget. H isn't a big fan of birthdays (which is crazy to me because I celebrate mine for a week), but he was allll about Mother's Day. He surprised me with gifts, gelato, breakfast in bed and flowers. I got to nap, do yoga, and get plenty of snuggle time in with Violet. He set the bar pretty high for next year ;)
I feel incredibly lucky and happy lately. I am so in love with our daughter and I am thankful I can spend my days at home with her. She is growing so fast and my heart aches a little every time I see her smile, yawn, or stretch first thing in the morning. Being a mom is one of the most challenging things I have ever done, but everyday with our little girl is a gift.

I am so lucky to be your mom Violet and I love you with all of my heart.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mamas out there!
