Mother's Day 2015

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmoms, soon-to-be moms, adoptive moms, working moms, stay at home moms, and like-a-mom-to-me moms! Before having children, I knew that mothers did a lot, but after having kids I fully appreciate the saying that the "Hand that rocks the cradle moves the world!" It was one thing to love and appreciate my mother while I was only a daughter, but when I became a mother and that all-encompassing love for a child takes over....that's when I fully realized everything that my mom was and did for me.  

My Mother's Day Weekend started off with a wonderful massage and facial gifted to me from my husband. Kara also brought home so many sweet hand made crafts from school that I just adored. Then on Saturday we headed to the Island where I got to relax all afternoon while Daddy took care of the girls. I haven't taken a nap on the beach in years, but I got one that day! And I got a wonderful gold clover necklace and ear ring set for my lil' {Lucky} clovers.

Not only am I blessed to be a mom to two wonderful children, but we have many moms/grandmoms/ and motherly figures that we like to shower with love and affection for on this day. This year, Hunter and I, along with our little girls made "garden" pots for each of our moms and Nonnie KK (my Aunt Karen, who is like a second mom to me.) Karabella's feet became butterflies. Evy's feet became bumblebees, and their hands and fingerprints became flowers. We even made ladybugs out of our thumbprints. (Pictures below)

I have been so blessed in my life to have such an amazing Mom and mentor. She has loved unconditionally, sacrificed willingly, and been such a wonderful inspiriation to me about being a mom and an exceptional human being. I Love you Momma! You are truly my best friend, I couldn't imagine any part of my life without you in it. Happy Mother's Day (Nana)!

And I have been doubly blessed to have been afforded of having more than just one "Mother" Figure. Happy Mother's Day to my Aunt Karen aka Nonnie Kk for always being there and for being anything and everything for your neices and nephews. You are a great "Mom" in every sense and I know its because you had such an amazing teacher whom we are all missing today. To my MommaLo, I love and miss you dearly. You taught me so much about being a Mom. Happy Mother's Day.

And my triple Blessing goes to my wonderful Mother-in-Law, Cylle. A MIL can be a hard role to fill and so many women tell horror stories about how they hate theirs...but I lucked out with you smile emoticon You have always given credit to Nana Rowell about how you learned to be a wonderful Mother-in-Love and you honor her because you are both a blessing and an honor to me. Happy Mother's Day (Grandmama)!

So from this {Lucky} family to yours, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Till Next Time,
