Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is always sentimental to me.  I always, always recognize my own mom for the dedication and unwavering support that she’s provided to me and my daughter over the years.  I know I can count on her always, and look forward to my quick “check-in” phone call each and every day.  These five minutes on the phone make her day and mine.

This day also reminds me of my most important job in the world…being a mom.  My daughter has made it fairly easy for me and I really can’t complain.  She is a good student, and most importantly, she’s a kind and caring person.  I always want the best for her, and I want her to know that she is capable to do whatever she wants in her life.  The sky is the limit.

Finally, Mother’s Day stirs up memories of my grandmothers who are no longer with us.  Both were so special in their own individual way and I miss them so much.  They added so much to my childhood memories…the sleepovers, the pierogies, the jelly cookies, the list goes on.  Their values and kindness still remain with me today and I am forever thankful for having them in my life.

J is obviously not a mom, but I love being a part of his kids’ lives.  They make me smile and never leave room for a dull moment.  Life is full and happy in this house!

This year I didn’t do too much of a tablescape since we had about 30 people for dinner.  But, I took my favorite “face vase” and added some roses and greens to create a pretty centerpiece for the meal.

I hope that all the moms out there had an amazing day!

Just like I love fine wine and dark chocolate, I'd love to hear from you too!
