Happy Mother’s Day — Link Up

by Susan

With my girls Julia and Sophia

Happy Mother’s Day!

How are you celebrating your day?

My Mother’s Day again this year is made extra special because of my first born Julia. Six years ago today — Sunday, Mother’s Day — Julia was born. My first Mother’s Day after years of waiting and praying for her to come.

Today my focus will be Julia’s birthday party because she and her little sister Sophia are my most amazing gifts. Celebrating my 6 year old’s birthday joy is the perfect Mother’s Day for me.

We want to hear how you spent your special day. If you posted about Mother’s Day, link up below…

What a special Mother’s Day gift you got all those years ago! Have fun today! We are taking the kids to Disney’s Animal Kingdom to celebrate!

Thanks Heather.

How fantastic to live close enough to Disney to get to visit one of the parks just for the day! Have fun.

I have learned over the past 6 years to be so grateful for being a mother. My kids teach me so much…and I know that sounds cheesy but it is true. I blogged about how a scary experience with my middle son has helped me to grow even more in to mothering. Happy Mother’s Day!


(I’m still really new to this so I hope this is what you meant by link up-lol)

Great picture – so glad you have MULTIPLE things to celebrate on Mother’s Day. I do, too. My mom’s b’day is always the same weekend AND I celebrate my LadyBug very soon, too. She was born after many years of “dump trucks and dinosaurs” – and I’ll always remember how happy I was to see PINK surrounding me :)

These were lovely; I had a hard time keeping together for some. Happy (belated) Mother’s Day!
