In the fray of things, I wasn't able to comment on one of my life's most momentous milestones: my first Mothers' Day!
Even though I didn't get to write about it, I wanted to remember it, because it was just wonderful.
Casey got up early and made a beautiful breakfast. I think I'm rubbing off on him... he set the table the night before so that it would be ready to go in the morning.
I love my wonderful husband for many reasons. Among them, the fact that he can take a hint! I had been subtly mentioning the fact that I was in desperate need of a pedicure, and much to my surprise, I was treated to one!
In addition, though, Casey invited my favorite friend Jessica to go along, so I got to enjoy her company and a fresh start - and fresh color! - for my tootsies. That Casey. He's good!
It was a fantastic day. But more than that, I love the fact that it is a day I can celebrate from now until forever. A day to celebrate all mothers; a group of incredible, tough, selfless, multi-tasking, on-their-feet-thinking, wise, giving, amazing women! In short, everything I aspire to be.
Casey and I often say thank you to each other for our beautiful little girl, and I am thankful to both of them for making me a mommy.
