What a wonderful day!! I have to admit at first I was bummed the boys spent the night at their friend Valen's house, this is nothing new, but on Mother's Day Eve. I have always awakened to my boys on Mother's Day, so to say the least I was a little sad, but I got over that fast. So I wake up at about 9:45 to a quiet house. I get up and make my way out to the living room and Michael is sitting at my scrap desk, well I try to sneak back and not disturb him, but no luck, so I just ignore that he is there and I go to the computer and check my email. I just ignore that he is behind me, we don't talk or anything. About an hour later he comes over to me and says this is for you, it took me 2 hours to do, I could never be a scrapbooker. I love it!!! He made something for me from his heart and with the things that bring me the most joy, beside him and the kids. How special is that.
Then while I was in the shower Michael went to get the boys, The boys came in with these beautiful flowers that this lady let them pick from her garden. We thn went to Ralph's and got sandwiches for a picnic and we headed to Descanso Garden's, it is so beautiful there. I really enjoy being in nature it just refreshes my soul. I have not been feeling well for about a month now, so we just took it easy. Walked a little bit and sat and just enjoyed the area. It was so beautiful and sunny out, a perfect day to spend in the shade, which is where we spent most of our time.
Some of the things we saw on our little trip around the grounds!
Flowers that I took photos of:
The Lilac's oh they are my all time favorite flower, they tease us with spring with the heavenly sent. I miss my Lilacs back in Connecticut, so much that seeing these was such a treat. They were almost all gone, but we just to experience a few that were still in the shade and in bloom.
Justin's Photo's, he did such a great job and he didn't want to give me back my camera, but I got it back!!!
Mothers Day to me is a day to reflect on the joys I get form being a Mother. I feel deep feelings for my children, more than I had ever imagined!
Mothers Day also bring me joy because I am a wife, a wife that loves and admires a man who truly loves me!!
A gift from my Mother-in-law
Who could ask for a better day!!! I love you guys very much Thank you!!
