Happy Mother’s Day To Me!

Happy Mother's Day to Me!

(Necklace by The Vintage Pearl. ‘Hope to bliss’ is in reference to Our Story. We celebrated our 15th anniversary in February!)

Lola gave me the best Mother’s Day present ever. She slept two full nights. Yes, bliss. Russ took all 4 kids out of the house Friday evening so that I could have some quiet time all alone. Yes, bliss. And he let me sleep in Saturday morning, made a yummy sausage and eggs breakfast, then hung out with the boys while Lola and I visited my parents, sister, and brother-in-law. (Quiet, adult conversation!!) Yes, bliss.

Happy Mother’s Day to all my beautiful mom readers!

I desire to be a mother--

if only to give food to the craving activity of my soul...

Maternity is an enterprise in which

I have opened an enormous stake...

Motherhood will develop my energy, enlarge my heart,

and compensate me for all things by infinite joys!

~Honore de Balzac, Memoirs of Two Young Married Women (1894)
