My First Mother's Day

It was wonderful! Last year Chris took me to Mother's Day brunch at the Mattaponi Golf Club. We were celebrating the fact that we were newly pregnant. So it was very fitting that we had brunch there this morning, but this time as a family of three :) He had to work the rest of the day, so Audrey and I hung out the rest of the day. The weather was beautiful and when Chris got home he snapped some pictures of us in front of the pretty flower bushes we have growing on the side of the house.









When Chris asked what I wanted for Mother's Day, I had no idea what to tell him. I did know that I wanted something "motherly"...something that would reminded me of my beautiful daughter. He picked out the perfect gift from Tiffany's:



It will also have Audrey's initials. I can hardly wait for it to get here!! Every time I look at it I'll think of my lovely Audrey and thoughtful Christopher. They are my life and the reason I'm a mom.

I hope all of the moms who read this enjoyed their special day!
