Well, what a great weekend. I hope everyone thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I did. Happy belated Mother’s Day as well 🙂 My Saturday morning started with a very early, rainy, and humid 4 mile run with some of the team. I came home to some early Mother’s Day surprises from my awesome husband, Mike. First some Mother’s Day flowers in an adorable vase ~
We have a grouping of framed pictures in our family room that are all filled except for an 8 x 10 that’s been empty, but hanging. I was thinking of having a wedding photo of us put in that one….just haven’t gotten around to it. Well, he had a favorite picture of mine that he took during a walk on the beach last summer and had it enlarged. It was in the frame and hanging when I got home Saturday morning. This man is the best ❤ ~
I know these are found all over the beach, but the simplicity in it is so sweet and so special, and it’s just a really great picture in person.
Mother’s day was wonderful and beautiful. I was thinking of taking the quick 45 minute drive to the shore and spending the day there, but I really, really wanted to get some flowers planted. I love spending that time outside and glad I did. On top of that Mike and the kids got me a cute orange flip flop Life is Good hat, a gift certificate to Victoria’s Spa, and a pair of 1880’s Victorian agate earrings. It was the perfect quiet Mother’s Day! I did good with food only because I chose to not do the usual brunch. I did miss the eggs benedict and mimosas, but that’s o-k!
