a mother's love

 my sweet sister took these photos during our vacation in Ojai, CA
This year was my first Mother's Days and it was very special. We were traveling through California visiting friends and family, it was lovely. Chris made me breakfast in bed and the three of us snuggled together. Later that night we shared a delightful dinner with great friends. It was the perfect day.

Being a mother is more amazing than I could have ever imagined. I've always loved children, in college I worked as a nanny for a wonderful family (the friends we celebrated mother's day with) and I also taught dance to little ones. From an early age, I knew I wanted to have children and they have always been in my life in one way or another. And yet, I still couldn't comprehend how full my heart would be as a mother.

When friends ask me what it is like being a mom my response is simple; "it's loving someone more than you could ever imagine, more than you ever thought was possible and each day that love multiplies and your heart grows beyond your physical body shining brighter than any star in the sky." It feels so right.

I am blessed to have this sweet little soul in my life and thankful he is happy and healthy. I'm looking forward to each Mother's Day marking this love and joy and celebrating it with my loving family.

Love and Light,
