still celebrating!

my husband, being a restaurant manager, was gone all day long yesterday~ mother's day. i received a few sweet texts from him during the day telling me that he loves me, misses me, wished he were home with us. when he did get home after a l-o-n-g and busy day he was exhausted, so we let him rest. the kids and i, however, had a really nice day. we rode bikes, played in the yard, walked to the store, made italian cream sodas, and watched a movie. there were handmade cards and gifts too. a wonderful day indeed!

today happens to be tony's day off so he informed me that we would celebrate mother's day today! yay! we got coffee, browsed the bookstore, and right this very second he is out buying stuff to make dinner for us! i also have a really cool gift on the way that should be here in 4 or 5 days and i can hardley wait!! be sure watch for my best mail day ever post...

i feel special, deeply loved, appreciated and lucky, lucky, LUCKY for everything i have! the road to get here has been bumpy and unpredictable, but the journey has been worth every single second.

the celebration will continue in our house as we have a very special birthday tomorrow! bring on the cake...
