If I could, I’d wear this outfit everyday! It’s casual yet makes me feel so confident… I mean, check out the jeans.
We picked out this dress for her for Easter, because my mom used to wear similar ones when she was little in the sixties. I love the vintage style.
I’ve always loved Mother’s Day because as a child my dad let me and my older brother bring our mama breakfast in bed, at church we got to sing to our moms, and of course make some kind of arts and craft cheesy present stating how much we love her.
But Mother’s Day this year has a whole new meaning for me. I’m so thankful to be able to claim “Mom” as one of my names now. Mother’s Day won’t only be about me showering my own mom with love and presents, but it’ll be a day to reflect on how grateful I am to have my own little family as well.
When I was pregnant, Jordan and I had decided to wait to find out the gender of our little baby (something we now plan to do for each pregnancy!) I honestly had no preference on having a boy or a girl, but now that I have my Scottie girl I am so excited for the years to come. I hope to be as close with her as I am with my own mama.
Today I celebrated with my mom and Scotland a little early. We went to lunch at one of my favorite places, Oxford Exchange, and got to enjoy The University of Tampa’s beautiful campus. Jordan has been out of town this whole week so I had a glimpse of what it’s like being a single mom… and man, it’s a hard job! So much power to all of you strong ladies who are. J gets back tonight and I am so excited to be able to spend this weekend together. It’ll be a special one for sure.
