What a wonderful 1st Mother's Day I had! Truth be told, Mother's Day was a depressing holiday for me while I was struggling through infertility, I would dread it. But this year, this year was very different! The girls just brightened my day and I was so blessed to be able to spend the whole day with them and my wonderful husband! 

We started off the weekend by going to my mom's house on Saturday to celebrate Mother's Day and my birthday (which is tomorrow!) It was warm and sunny out, and my parents live on a lake so it was a beautiful day to spend by the water! The girls were fantastic, not a peep out of them the entire time until the end, when they started to get tired. I was going to wait until their 1st birthday to give them cake, but I couldn't help but share my birthday cake with them! They absolutely loved it!

Then the next day, Mother's Day, Brian let me sleep in and got the girls up and fed them! He was super helpful all day and did a lot of stuff around the house. He also made us all a big breakfast which was delicious! He got me 2 wisteria vines which I asked for, and a new strap for my camera which I also wanted! My mom got me a huge bag of brand new clothes which was so thoughtful, I really needed them and she knows my style SO well! I loved everything! She also got me a beautiful card. My very best friend also called me to wish me a happy 1st mother's day which was so sweet of her!

Overall my 1st Mother's Day was just wonderful! I really enjoyed spending the time with my family and appreciated the thoughtfulness!!!
