~Mothers Day~

Loved how much I was loved on this day. My children made me breakfast in bed. Then after church we went on a hike to some waterfalls and visited our favorite swimming hole on the river. The water is still to cold to swim, but there is never a lack of exploring to do. 

This box showed up on my doorstep…

I didn’t really have the option to hide…my furniture is all packed up right now. So it was more like…

Seven children gathered round.

Offering to help.

Throwing guesses what it was.

Lots of noise and excitement.

Husband standing behind me grinning.

Box opened.

Pure, sheer amazement at what they saw.

Husband whispering in my ear that he loves me. 

Everybody eating yummy strawberries.

Hmm.. I love Jesus. I love my husband, Eric. I love my 8 beautiful children. I loved living in California. I love sunshine and the beach. Shopping at farmers market and the little stores downtown where I can bargin for the best deal. I love to sew and make things. I love spending time with girlfriends encouraging each other. Date nights with Eric are fabulous. I love ballroom dancing with him. The smell of my new little baby and the miracle of their existance. I love italian food- or just about all of Italy for that matter. I love art- paintings on my wall that I know personally who painted them.

  1. I love the strawberry gift!  That’s so thoughtful.How did our baby girls get to be BIG “almost 2 year olds”!?  I was looking in the pic w/you and the kids for “the baby” and realized how big she’s gotten (like my Sarah).Fun times.  Happy Mother’s day!

    The berries look delish! All the fun at the river looks like wonderful memories to look back on one day when your busy household slows down and things are quiet….. lol. šŸ™‚
