Mother’s Day Surprise

Thank you to Michael, Lilliana and Lucas for a peaceful, loving and beautiful Mother’s Day. The day started with extra sleeping time (which I need every day), followed by a delicious French Toast breakfast. We spent some time together at the park, ate a picnic lunch and enjoyed some time visiting Julian.

The kids made these gorgeous Tulip Planters, the day before at Home Depot. They were very excited about all the “hard work” it took to make them and are looking forward to making something special for Father’s Day too!

The day ended with a delicious Linguine Carbonara (great job Mike!) and some Mini-Cheesecake Brownies. The day was just what I needed, a calm, quiet, relaxing day with just the four of us.

Oh, and I can’t forget…. the sweet card from a dear friend, that I found waiting for me when we got home. What a nice surprise! Thank you to Lisa, for being such an awesome friend, always there for me in this most difficult time. She took the time to write a beautiful card and hand deliver it to me, even though she had family over her house and four children. She’s amazing and I’m very thankful for having her in my life.

Thank you.

  1. That French toast looks delicious! Tell Lucas and Lilliana I’ll have to get the recipe from them 🙂 Actually, Dave will have to get the recipe from them so he and the kids can make it for me!!!!
