My first Mother's Day

I'm a bit late in getting this post up...but it is still May!

As I've mentioned before Mother's Day can be a hard holiday for me, having lost my mother to cancer nearly thirteen years ago. I was both excited to make new memories/traditions with our little family and also missed my mom more than ever on my first Mother's Day as a mom.

The day was rather quiet, but one I will always treasure. Maggie and her dad had been fighting colds so we stayed home from church because she was still coughing and had a fun backyard picnic for lunch.

Spending time outside is one of Maggie's favorite things to do. Can you tell?

My only regret is that we didn't set the timer on the camera and get a family photo to remember the day with. I hope we can make Mother's Day picnics, whether in the backyard or elsewhere, a family tradition.

A fun Mother's Day related fact: the quilt we're sitting on in the photos was made by Maggie's paternal great grandma and grandma!
