Mother's Day Reflections...

I have started and restarted this post like 4 times since Sunday. Honestly... I have so much to say... and no way to put it into words. I can't believe that this year *I* celebrated Mother's Day. And not only as a day to honor the wonderful mothers in my life... but as a mother myself. The day was truly wonderful... starting off with a late wake up and delicious breakfast, thanks to Brandyn.
Then we were off to Saratoga to visit my mom and introduce Andrew to his Great Grandma, Great Aunt Ellen, and Great Uncle Tim.


We ended the day with a very delicious dinner at Brandyn's sisters, enjoying the company of her family and Brandyn's parents.

Later that night at home, I rocked my beautiful little boy to sleep, put him in his crib... and did not hold back on the urge to check on him and look at his adorable face... oh... at least a half a dozen times before I went to bed.

It was a perfect day.
