Happy Mother’s Day to my dear Mother, Mother-in-law, and all the mommy & mommy-to-be friends!
It was a super busy Friday and Saturday for us this weekend. After work on Friday, we made a quick overnight trip down to NC, and ended up coming back home almost 2 in the morning today. On our drive home, Steve said, “happy first Mother’s Day” when it turned midnight. It was the cutest thing! Then it hit me that this year marks my very first Mother’s Day! Of course, Mother’s Day is celebrated for moms who have endured raising their children, so I definitely don’t even compare to my own Mother & Mother-in-law, but today is still very special to think of what’s to come in my future. It’s truly overwhelming to feel this unconditional love for our baby growing inside of me, especially today. I guess it’s the start of my motherly instincts! It honestly became a bit more real today that I am going to be someone’s mother in about 5 months. And my wonderful husband validated that by making me breakfast all by himself to thank me for being a mom (to be)! It was also great to receive messages from our family and friends wishing me a happy Mother’s Day. We ended the weekend with our hearts full of love, dinner out with my parents and daydreaming about what next year’s going to look like for us! 🙂
