Mother's Day Withdrawals

I had the most fantastic Mother's Day with my family yesterday!  I live close to my mom and I couldn't imagine life away from her.  We are always conspiring on projects, parties, and recipes.  Most importantly, she reassures me about parenting and balancing my life.  She is just the most gentle spirited and giving person.

My brother and sister in law usually has Mother's Day at their house.  He made us the most fantastic meal!  Not only was it health conscious (so we could splurge on dessert) it was delicious.  Salmon with quinoa and kale with white corn salad topped with alvacado lime garlic sauce.  Unbelievable.

Like I said, I saved up for dessert which was this to-die-for tiramisu.  I'm not kidding; this was the best I've ever had.
Photo: I'm so thankful for these two.  Britton first made me a mom and Gwenna came along and made me a better mom.  My mom Susan, and mother in law Jeanne, are the best examples of selfless mothers I could have.  Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mom's I know!
My kids spoiled me with homemade gifts and sweet pictures.  My daughter made me laugh with a drawing of a wine bottle with a label that read "the girl who discovered wine."  My husband got me a coveted purse that I'm thrilled to have.  I am one happy mommy.
I hope you all enjoyed Mother's Day yesterday with your own moms or as moms yourselves.
