Sunday Mother's Day

Mother's Day was wonderful! It started with my husband suprising me with a gift: a sewing machine! Now I can actually get started on my projects for the nursery.

Then we went to Music and the Spoken word in the tabernacle. It was so beautiful and the perfect way to begin a special day.

My little girl was moving around during "in my mother's eyes". I think it was her present to me :) And it really made me think about being a mother and all that it entails. I got a little overwhelmed for a second, but then realized that I have sooo many amazing examples of motherhood in my life, and I all the sudden felt so privileged to be able to hold the title of 'mother' soon!

We had brunch with family at the Grand America hotel. It was beautiful and delicious! So fun to be with family!

That night we had a family FHE at the barn. After a little talent show and mother's day thought, each person gave a flower to my grandma and a chocolate kiss to my grandpa and told them how much we love them.

The links, we are all connected!
