I wanted to share a bit on how I spent my first Mother’s day and a few sentimental thoughts I had on being a mom.
We spent our day taking it easy in the morning and then we took a long walk to my favorite little macaron shop, Lady Yum that recently opened up in our neighborhood. It really is the cutest place. You can order macarons and champagne and hang out in their cozy shop. We picked up a package of 10 macarons and enjoyed them at home with some champagne we had. The bottle was actually one that Brian bought right after we got home from the hospital to celebrate. So we f i n a l l y popped the cork and celebrated! We also had some delicious sushi that Brian picked up from a spot I’ve been wanting to try. It truly felt like a perfect date at home. I loved the entire day and I will cherish it for a long time.
I did a lot of reflecting because It’s still surreal that I’m a mom. And that this little girl is my girl and will be until the end of time. Miss Liliana has already taught me so many things in her short, precious 6 months that I can’t imagine what she has in store for me for years to come. I see the world through her eyes and I feel excitement and terror all at the same time. Motherhood is a raw and beautiful thing. I want her to be proud of me, of Brian, of us. I want to create a life that she looks back on fondly, and I want her to know that she can curl up into my arms and barry her face in my neck when she’s 30 like she does today. There are so many things I want her to know and I can’t wait to tell her. I’m in love with her sweet, sweet and playful spirit—and being her mom is a gift that I will never take for granted.
Cheers to all you Mom’s out there! xo Jen
