a lovely living

MD2What a whirlwind weekend we just had! I honestly don’t know how it’s Monday already. Our weekend was jam packed with family, friends and beautiful weather. If I could have squeezed in just one nap, it probably would have been perfect. But I suppose sleep is over-rated anyway ;)

I didn’t have much time to prepare anything else, so here are some shots from Mother’s Day 2014.

Jack’s school hosted a Mother’s Day pancake breakfast. I love when I get to spend some one on one time with either of my children and this lovely morning was no exception.


You may remember me mentioning the one thing I wanted for Mother’s Day was a Mother’s Day journal such as the one I had seen here. Well my husband did not let me down. He found the most beautiful journal and filled it with pictures and colorings from our kids. From this year forward, we’ll continue to fill it with drawings, photos and messages so everything is held in one place. I can’t wait to look back over the years as time goes on!!


MD10 We were able to enjoy brunch with my husband’s parents who came up for the afternoon. I’ve said numerous times that I couldn’t have fallen into a better family. You don’t get to pick your in-laws, but I don’t think I could have chosen better myself! In addition to loving her son/my husband, my mother in law and I share so many common interests. I hear many nightmare MIL stories, but I honestly don’t know what I’d do without mine!



This picture totally cracks me up. I love that the camera auto-focused on my son, the photo-bomber!



We then moved on to my son’s soccer game where we had members of both sides of our family in attendance. We were probably the most obnoxious crowd cheering for one kid, but it must have worked because he scored two goals and could not have been more proud! This is him walking back to the car, completely exhausted, with my grandmother. Thanks to my sister, Sarah, for capturing this!MD7

We finished off the day with my family enjoying pizza and salad. I don’t think life would be possible without each and every one of these women. My mother, grandmother and sister add so much to my life in so many different ways. I’m so very thankful for them all.


I hope you enjoyed your Mother’s Day being celebrated and/or celebrating that very special woman that raised you and loves you like none other!

As a final note, today is the last day to vote for me in the Redbook Real Women’s Style Awards. If you have a moment I’d really appreciate your vote! Thanks all!!
