Mother's Day

My Mother's Day was just as I hoped it would be; just like any other day. A day filled with Oia's sloppy kisses and her little arms wrapped around my neck. A day to actually celebrate not myself, but instead the one who made me a mother.

A day of play, and little work, and full of each other's company...at home, outside, with Rob and Oia.

A day in the slow lane. A day to relax and do next to nothing makes a day perfect in my book. I find that life in the slow lane is where one can best find the simple pleasures in life and there I like to remain if at all possible.

Even on Mother's Day.


  1. Very sweet. That's my kind of day, too. I'm glad you had a good Mother's Day. You deserve it!

  2. Oh Yeah Mo! That is fantastic! I feel the same way about not celebrating myself! I feel like that is backwards...we are gifted to be the mothers of our babes. Oh I am so glad you had a wonderful day with sweet Oia! We didn't do much either, soooo nice!

  3. Dude, she is using a tool in each hand! You guys are beautiful!
