What I Wore: Mother's Day Edition

A few years back she went crazy for Christmas, designing and making me SEVERAL beautiful ensembles (all my favorite items in my closet!) So, in honor of my ridiculously amazing mother, I wore one of her creations for Mother's Day:

Perfect for a bright and beautiful Mother's Day! :)

Mother's Day

I am so grateful for a mother who did just that! As I've been working on my own home and new family with my husband, I realize more and more every single day just how much my mother did for me--nothing less than amazing! If there's one thing that stands out the most, especially lately after moving again, I realize how grateful I am for the home that she created for us; our house was never just a house, it was a HOME--a refuge of safety and security where we could always come home to and know that no matter what, we were loved. As I create my own home now, I realize that not everyone has been blessed with such a place, and many do not know the beauty of having more than just a house, or apartment, or place of residence--the beauty and blessing of having a HOME. What my mother did for me has influenced my life far above anything else; I know that I am who I am today because of what my mother has done for me and continues to do for me--She defeinitely made our house into a home every single day, and it's made ALL the difference in my life--I love you Mama!! <3 nbsp="" p="">
