A Mother's Day Special . . . No, I'm not talking about a sale on roses or mylar balloons or some silly stuffed animal. I'm simply talking about exactly what Mother's Day is: special.
Last year was my very first Mother's Day . . . Jackson was only 4 days old, and I was really too exhausted to think about celebrating. Besides, at that point I honestly didn't understand precisely what it meant to be his "mother" yet. This year is different. I am so incredibly blessed to has both the joys and responsibility of raising the world's most loveable one-year-old (sure, I'm a little biased).
Today my wonderful mom and I went out to dinner together to celebrate. She is truly the WORLD'S BEST MOM, and I know I'll be doing well by Jax if I am even half the mother she was to me. I love you and thank you for everything, Mom.
Since Justin had to work today, we celebrated Mother's Day at our house yesterday . . . first with a picnic in the park with Jackson . . . then with a dinner/movie date with just Justin and I. Here are a few pictures from our early Mother's Day!
After our park outing, Justin gave me my gift . . . a British import CD of Ellie Goulding who sings "Starry Eyed." I was so impressed that he was able to find it . . . since it's not yet sold in the USA!
Good job, Jus!
. . . And we set off on the town . . .

And to satisfy your curiosity, I have included a link to watch the music video of "Starry Eyed"
