I am a day late in wishing all you mother’s a happy day, but I was basking in the blessing of Dear Husband taking care of all the parental duties around here, which also included my very, very favorite breakfast – eggs benedict. I would eat egg benedict for every meal if I had a choice.
You know I love design in all forms and I can’t help but get excited about fashion and products and food and travel that reflect who I am on the inside. A good design is a good design. No matter if is a rug, a pillow, a door, a dresser, a hangbag or a certain dress that could have been inspired from a vintage handcerchief. I do love pretty clothes, especially ones that mirror who I feel like inside. It’s just another opportunity to express to the world who this recovering shy girl is.
So, after my delicious breakfast (Oh my, my mouth is watering just tying about it) and a sit on the couch with my coffee, DH and my three darlings offered me a their gifts of hand colored treasures, beaded necklaces, paper flowers and all the things that I will never tire of. The Peony and Suede Blush was in a little box. Sweet and light.
The handkerchief dress in a big black box. I think it’s so sweet when a man buys a girl a dress. Yes, I may have hinted about this particular one, but he went out and bought it.
After an amazing and life-changing Thai massage we went to a local pub for lunch. Oh, how this former vegetarian loves a good burger now days. Yes, Ma’am.
I have to say, though, that my very favorite part was getting my kids to watch my favorite movie in our basement theater. They sat through the entire showing of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and God-bless Reid for crying when Holly Golightly kicked Cat out of the taxi.
I hope you all were blessed with the love you deserve and were able to really take it in. There are times when I cannot take in love and just shrug it off and think I have to do more and try harder. Yesterday I didn’t do that. I let the love come to me and really let it in. In return I felt showered by those that I share life with and honored to be the mom that I am.
