1st mom's day

What a wonderful 1st Mother's Day I had yesterday.
Have I mentioned that I have the BEST husband? He
reminds me all the time of why I fell in love with him,
why I married him and why I have a son with him. Over
the years he has only become more the man of my dreams
than the day we took our vows.
He surprised me with pretending to go to work but instead
buying scones, deep purple
tulips, a "Happy Mom's Day" banner that he made and a
handwritten card he made from Israel's scribbles.
Yes, I cried, pretty much instantly!
I love how cheery the tulips make the living room. Makes
me wonder why I don't buy flowers more often?

  5. The idea of making something by hand for your mom never grow old. My sister and I once did this to our mom. We cleaned up the house and decorated the living just for our mom. She had the biggest smile on her face. It was worth it.

  19. Your first Mother's Day sounds wonderful. The homemade card would mean much more to me than any store bought card would. I loved the wording on the card as well.
