Mother's Day 2013

I love Mother's Day and the little surprises,
but I must admit the celebration is rather bittersweet since
I lost my own sweet Mother a little over two years ago.
I will always miss calling her every day and chatting.
  You know, no one is as interested or delighted
to hear about my kids as my Mom.  

Connor and Maddy -- Mother's Day 2013

I know my Mom would want me to feel special and loved on Mother's Day
 (every day for that matter) and I certainly did and could feel her
warm smile and embrace from afar!

First on the agenda -- breakfast at Paner*a. 
I have been wanting to try one of their souffles for months now,
so we planned to meet Connor there for Mother's Day breakfast.
Evidently, every other mother in town had the same idea
as there were no souffles left when we arrived! :(
Boo hoo - but, we still had a lovely little breakfast together.

And then we drove thru Starbucks for cake-pops!

The rest of the day I ignored the laundry, the grocery list and
put off mowing the lawn for another day.
I may have even taken a little nap!

It was a sweet lovely day!
We missed Philip and Catherine and the littles,
but plan to see them soon.
Maddy wrote me the sweetest poem!
I love my little family and they made my day so special.

Some older photos -- but always favorites!

Philip, Connor, Mr. Tennis
Catherine and me

I am so sorry that yo did not get a soufflé. I was addicted to the bacon and spinach one for a while but I gave up gluten again so I have not had one in a LONG time but I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Please let me know when and if you do try one. They are all good.

I hope you had a nice Mother's day but I am sure it is bittersweet since losing your Mom.

I hear you about your Mom. It does feel like it is their day!

Love the pictures and so glad you felt loved.

So glad you had a special day. I loved looking back at the past Mother's Day pictures.

Shame on Panera! I can't believe they ran out of those yummy souffles on Mother's Day. They are delicious! So glad you had a great day anyway! Love the wedding pictures! You looked soooo pretty!
