Happy belated Mother's Day!

I haven't been much in the blogging mood lately for some reason, but wanted to chime in and say that I hope everyone had a happy Mother's Day. I'm sure it was a very special day for everyone celebrating their very first Mother's Day! I hope it was a good one.

Joe and I, along with my brother and his family, took my mom to brunch at a local, historic hotel (for the locals...we went to the San Marcos). They had a really nice buffet and we had a long and leisurely meal. My nieces and nephew made a big platter for my mom at one of those pottery painting shops. They did a great job and even included Lauren's name. My niece, Emily, gave me this gift bag...


with this little ladybug in it...


It's like a little ladybug chia pet! I'll have to post another photo later when it sprouts.

Just think...next Mother's Day I'll have Lauren home! Gee, I hope I'm not delusional...what do you all think?

That little gift bag and chia present are adorable! "A waiting cousin" is just the cutest (although it did make me tear up a little it was so sweet). Sending you big Mother's Day hugs.
