Mother's Day

To all the wonderful mothers in the world,  today is for you. Being a mother is the hardest job in the whole world, but it is also the best and most fulfilling, too. 

I have always wanted to be a mother and that dream came true on April 26th, 2011. There's nothing I would rather be than a mother. My son fills up every part of my heart and because of him I love a crazy huge love that I never knew I could. 

Not one day goes by that I wish I was out working a job or doing something else. Being a mother is my calling and I am so blessed that I can stay home and mother my son every second of every day. 

I am fortunate in that I have an amazing mother who is beautiful, selfless, and kind. A mother who epitomizes what every mother should be and a mother who puts all others before herself. I have had a perfect example to learn from my whole life, and for that I am thankful beyond words. 

To every mother, I hope you get to sleep in, take naps, and have a day off from doing dishes today. 

I will be spending the day with my mother, my grandmother, and all my family. We're gathering together by the beach today to feast and enjoy company. I brought a FEAST of treats for everyone to enjoy because baking is my love language and my most favorite thing to do. I also made a big tray of these goodies for all my mom friends to enjoy. 

I made three different kinds of cookies- peanut butter, chocolate chip, and chocolate with white chocolate chips. Then I made double chocolate devils food cupcakes, two different kinds of candy bark (not pictured) and the most amazing chocolate and peanut butter brownies with pretzels and sea salt. I will share a recipe or two this week with you all because the stuff came out the bomb!

I was under the impression that my husband would be working on Mother's Day so James and I packed up and headed down to see my fam yesterday. My husband told me to expect a package around 8pm and I thought it would be something like Pro Flowers since you can pick the date and time of delivery for those... He called me at 8 to ask if the package arrived yet and he was outside!!!! Best husband ever. Not only can he spend Mother's Day with me but he took the week off, too!! I also got some sweet gifts and a shopping spree approval. The best gift of all, though, is the gift of my son and the opportunity to love him and raise him and take care of him always.
