First Mother’s Day

In leu of surprise Mother’s Day gifts, Jesse devoted our entire afternoon to something I don’t often get to do– shopping! He went with me to 4 stores, for a total of 4 hours, carting around and caring for G, giving fashion advice and support, while I tried on clothes, looked at housewares…it was fun, to say the least πŸ™‚ Not to mention that we drove through Starbucks along the way! And it was all his idea!

In the end, all I got was a pair of designer denim jean shorts (Paige Brand, my absolute favorite), and a fun belt to wear with tunics, billowy dresses, etc. I love that we were able to have a day with “my kind” of fun without spending very much money. Time out of the house together is a rare commodity these days, and I’m so thankful that Jesse sacrificed his entire afternoon/early evening…all for me…

Happy First Mother’s Day to me! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you out there, as well. In particular, Happy Mother’s Day to my mom, the most selfless person I know, and to my mother-in-law, who let me marry her boy. I know now how hard it will be for me to accept whoever G marries (I cringe thinking about it!), so it means a lot to me that I’ve been accepted as a “Cone” πŸ™‚
