Introductory Mother's Day

"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way." -Pablo Neruda

I imagine this is the love a mother feels for her children-I know I already love Aiden, I feel an incredible ache to meet him and at the same time a kind of selfishness because right now, he is all mine.  I feel this urge to just want to cuddle with him and smell him and have him to hold in my arms, not just in my belly. 


I had the most incredible weekend that started with a super fun gymnastics experience-one of my level 9 athletes qualified to Westerns (a championship competition consisting of the top athletes from the West-side of the U.S.).  My athlete had a great time and so did I!

Then my husband (I JUST LOVE MY HUSBAND) took me on a semi-surprise trip to La Jolla for the night where we stayed in a cute inn, ate delicious food, and spent some couple time together-cuddling, walking, enjoying the ocean view & watching the Pac-man/Mosely fight (Yes, I had fun watching boxing! It was something my husband wanted to do & he is like a little kid in a candy shop when these sort of events are on. For some reason, this makes me happy). 

Here are some pictures from the weekend (apologies for the quality-we forgot our real cameras and these were all taken with our phones):

The view from where we watched the fight. see our room?!?

Good morning, view from our room on my intro. mother's day!
date night.

oh hello, view from our breakfast table.

see my new shades? yup, my first mother's day present-Ray Bans!

I just love my AWESOMELY thoughtful husband.

"Love, Love, here we are"
Hat shop fun (and yes I AM THE CAPTAIN, Joel is my first mate!)

 Today is my introductory mother's day, and I have been made to feel extra special by my husband, family & friends, from parents of my gymnasts, and from strangers (several people have stopped me today while we were walking around La Jolla to wish me a happy mother's day!).  I want to say Happy Mother's day to ALL mothers, to everyone's mother, but most especially to MY mother.

From this day forward,

Honorary Mom
