I was celebrated for the first time on Mother’s Day yesterday and it felt pretty good. Huz and the cats got me a sweet card (I’ll have to scan the kids’ messages and show you because it’s pretty hilarious – Neville’s spelling is worse than mine!). Huz also made me my favorite breakfast (cheese blintzes with amaretto cherry sauce, rosemary potato pancakes, and sausage – only thing missing was a Bellini, but I’ll have to wait until next year!) and got me a gift certificate for an hour long pre-natal massage at a great spa in town. Isn’t he the sweetest!? I love him so much and feel so lucky to have spent nearly half my life with him. Yes, we have our disagreements and difficult times, but overall I feel like the most blessed woman alive to have this man love me. Thank you Huz. You mean the world to me and I’m so very, very proud of all of your accomplishments so far!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you reading who are mothers, are soon-to-be mothers, want to be mothers but can’t, and are mothers of adopted children. [And moms of pets!!]
