I don’t know about the rest of you moms out there but I know for me, I am always the one behind the camera snapping little shots of my kiddos on special occasions and capturing their everyday cuteness. Lately, I’m trying to be a part of some of the pictures and make memories along with my kids. This Mother’s Day I asked my husband to take some pictures of me and the littles. Our lives have been so busy and hectic lately as you can imagine. Building the house has taken up so much time and energy and we’ve had so little time to just breathe. We are all looking forward to having a slower season when this is all finished but that isn’t happening for a while. I’ll be posting an update on the building process soon but for now, it’s just us, on Mother’s Day, enjoying some much needed time together and a day off!
I had to give a shout out to A Family Print Shop for the beautiful silhoettes I ordered myself for Mother’s Day. Come on, don’t tell me I’m the only one who orders Mother’s day presents for herself. (Comment below if you’ve done the same so I don’t feel so bad. LOL!) They are absolutely gorgeous and the picture doesn’t do it justice. I love the locket and how my kids said I can look at it when we’re not together and I won’t miss them…cue the tears! I don’t know why but I was really surprised that I could actually recognize them in the silhouettes. It’s so special to see them this way…to see all the lines and curves of their faces in a way I don’t notice every day. I cannot wait to hang the wood ovals up in our house someday very soon! Their shop is closed right now recovering from all the holiday madness but I know they’re opening up very soon (like later this week!!!) Check out their website and all their beautiful work.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
