mother’s day twenty fourteen. part one

May 11 2014 017

who’s been waiting for a mother’s day post to appear on here all week?

i bet our sweet DD has been wondering what has taken me so long…

anyway, while i was still pregnant with Lily, the option of me going back to work after maternity leave was still up in the air

however, that got tossed out the window the very instant moment i pushed Lily out and held her in my arms for the very first time

i knew right then and there that i wanted to be the best full time mama to her that i could possibly be

things were tight for a while (in every way). very tight

we lived in a small one bedroom apartment for far too long as three

but, we were happy

we/things have come along way since those early parenting days

but one thing that has remained is our love for one another

if anything it has only gotten stronger and bigger

it is nice to have one specific day to be extra pampered, to get flowers and gifts for appreciation

however, the greatest gift is the one i receive daily by sharing my life with the two people i love the most

one of which we created

this was our mother’s day this year
