I can’t believe it’s my first real Mother’s Day. I never really knew, or understood, what it would be like to be a mama, and now that it’s here, I appreciate my own sweet mother even more than ever. She put aside so many of her own wishes, hopes and desires for our betterment, and she’s one of the most selfless women that I know.


Now that I have a sweet babe of my own, I can only hope that I’ll be half the mother to him that my mother has been to my sisters and I. Spencer is such a sweet, stubborn, silly, adorable little boy, and I’m so proud to be his momma – and that he has his Oma to love and spoil him, too.


And, on this very first Mother’s Day of my own, I’m celebrating this baby-blue-eyed little man that has so transformed me, my wants and my wishes. He’s made our little family so much fuller and special. He’s perfection, and I’m so very, very blessed to be this sweet boy’s mama.

To all my blogging mamas out there, I wish you all the happiest of Mother’s Days. And, to those soon-to-be and wishful mamas, I pray you are all blessed tenfold with sweet peanuts of your own. It’s the most beautiful, awe-inspiring, challenging and remarkable journey in life.
