Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day started with a nice, lazy morning.  I was able to sleep in, have a long phone conversation with my Mom, enjoy a Caribou mocha that Mike & Sophia picked up along with fresh berries and a bagel for breakfast.   The weather was not cooperative, so we opted to go out to a movie in the afternoon.  Mike braved the wind and rain and grilled steak and chicken for dinner.  Sebastian gave me a very sweet homemade card.   Sophia gave me beautiful handmade gifts.  Mike picked out delicious truffles and a book.  It was so nice to enjoy a day with no commitments or activities.  The best part was to spend the day together as a family.

Me & The Kids

Thank you Mike, Sebastian and Sophia for making me realized how lucky I am today and every day we are together.

I missed my opportunity to photograph this Gerbera daisy in the warmth of sunshine that we had earlier in the week.  Instead I photographed it in today’s gloomy, overcast weather.  This pretty little flower was a gift from Sophia for Mother’s Day.  The bloom is almost finished, but I am eagerly awaiting many more blossoms from one of my favorite flowering  plants.
