An Early Mother's Day Gift

We had a picnic in our backyard a few nights ago, followed by a small game of lawn croquet. There have been a few moments in my life that I hope I will never forget and this evening was one of them: the perfect sunlight dancing off Graeme's curls and his sweet chatter, Job's bright eyes and the sight of him being lifted into the air by my husband, and the raspy giggles that ensued. A perfect early mother's day gift, for sure.

happy weekending 
and a special mother's day wish to all my friends and my own mom and mother-in-law!
