Ellie'sBirth-1449

Today my heart is filled. I am so grateful to be a mother to my sweet, determined, happy girl. I am grateful for the late nights, cheerios on the floor, early morning giggles, popsicle sharing, diaper changing, and all the other joys (and hard times!) that come with being a mother. Thank you Ellie for making me a mom! It’s the most challenging, beautiful, wonderful, rewarding calling in the world and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

I am also grateful for my sweet mother-in-law! She raised such a fabulous son whom I now call my husband. She spoils Ellie and I rotten and we just love her so! Happy Mother’s Day Mama Z!

And last, but surely not least, Happy Mothers Day to my own sweet mama! Words cannot express how much I love her. After having a daughter of my own, I’ve learned just how much she has sacrificed for me over the years. She’s always been my best friend and a perfect example of how I want to live my life. I love you mama!!

 

Hope all of you moms, expecting moms, and future moms are enjoying your sweet day! XO!

P.S. I just came across this fabulous talk about mothers and this inspiring article. Great Mother’s Day reads!
