(Happy!) Mother's Day

May 9, 2016
I don’t remember if I’ve ever had a great Mother’s Day.  In past years, odds were high that one of us was working.  This year was just wonderful.  Seriously.  It was a weekend at home that had every great ingredient.  Beautiful weather (sun and 70s-low 80s).  Kids that slept well.  No one sick (!).  No one on call.  No work stress.  Family in town with not one but two celebratory brunches.  I did barre (at home) on Saturday and ran 6 mi in clear sunshine on Sunday.

Josh gave me earrings, Annabel gave me a homemade necklace AND plate AND photo (with her quote: “I love my mommy bigger than the world, only because she is my mommy”).  Cameron gave me giggles and smiles and kisses.

So, yeah.  I may be entering yet another call week (I seem to have front-loaded the year), but my heart is full and happy.  

ALSO: I have 0 emails in my inbox and am filled with GTD-inspired ideas.  Hooray!

    Sounds like such a great weekend! Those Saucony sneaks are my fave for little boys, we’ve gone through SO MANY pairs over the years!

    Sounds like a perfect Mother’s Day! We were both off too, which is always nice.

    I have those gray/green Saucony’s for Rishi (my 3yo). Love them!
