I'd like to nominate yesterday (Monday) as an alternate Mother's Day. Mostly because of the sunshine.
Ruby and I enjoyed some time trolling about the backyard enjoying the perfect weather while rearranging strawberry plants and sweeping dirt. We took a walk to the park to swing and pick dandelions before nap time and dog poop duty. I bet you've never worn a dress to pick up dog poop, have you. It doesn't make it any more fun.
Our afternoon included a thrift store or two, NPR on the radio with the windows down, and more glorious sunshine. I didn't have to cook (thank you leftovers!) and after hosing the kids down in the yard, we skipped baths and Brett put the kids to bed while I went to the gym.
Maybe that's all a girl really needs to be happy - sunshine, a pretty dress, and the people she loves most. I'm telling you, that thrifting didn't hurt either.
Ruby and Sebastian were chasing Sunday around in between shots. I think Ruby thought this was her cue to come stand by me for our regular mama/daughter vintage shot. Sweet thing was covered in dirt and chocolate pudding but still has that great little smirk.
Here's to sunshine!
