This past weekend was full of time with family and friends, and it made me feel abundantly grateful – to be a mom, and to have a wonderful mom, mother-in-law, and grandmother! It also made me miss my granny more than normal. As joyous of a holiday that it can be, I know it brings about heartache in some people. I was praying for those that I know who have lost their mothers, or who are longing to be mothers.
My mom and I spent Friday afternoon together. She showed me around some cute shops in Fort Mill, then we went to Kid Cashew for lunch (yum!), and we went plant shopping at the Kings Dr Farmers Market. I am trying to get rid of my black thumb and glean all of her plant knowledge!
That night we celebrated one of my best friend’s nursing school graduation! So proud of you, Ashley!
Todd’s mom’s Mother’s Day wish was to go shooting and to eat sushi. So Todd and his 3 siblings took her skeet shooting! While they were gone, Davis and I went to the farmer’s market. (Can you tell I love local markets?!) Then Davis and I met them at Cowfish for some sushi! That night my family came by, and we all spent time outside, then went to a big bonfire that our neighbors were hosting.
On Sunday I had a meltdown because I have been having a really hard time dressing my new figure. Don’t get me wrong – I am thrilled to be pregnant, and I love having a bump – but I wasn’t prepared for how quickly I would grow this time! Plus, pregnancy hormones are just crazy at times. I probably tried on 15 outfits. Yikes! We did make it to lunch with my family – ha! We ate delicious Italian food at OGGI, then relaxed at home.
I love my people, and am just so thankful for the time with them over the weekend.
