2). We have a neighborhood block party this weekend and I am taking this staple, Chilled Vegetable Salad.It is so easy and so good. Perfect for any summer get-togethers coming your way.
3). I feel like I
4). As if I am not being selfish enough, I think these sandals would be great this summer. One can't have too many shoes... am I right?
5). Sunday is Mother's Day and I don't think I truly appreciated this day until I had a little of my own. I didn't anticipate the sacrifices one has to make. The time, body and soul it takes to raise a kid and raise them right. I have immense mom guilt when I miss those new moments while at work but deeply savor the sweet times we have. I have regret when I have to work late or leave my little one but boy does it make the reunion all that much sweeter. While this day is a day to celebrate the moms in your life it also causes hesitation for those that yearn to be moms or those that have experienced loss. The day has a bittersweet notion but one that is savored all that much more.
Thank you not just to my momma but to my grandmother for loving my momma and my mother-in-law for raising my husband right. They say it takes a village and it sure does. I mean, I am biased to a mother's love but it takes everyone--spouses, family, friends, neighbors, teachers--to raise our kids in this crazy world where we live. Happy Mother's Day to not only all the mommas out there but to everyone else in the village.
