My first mother’s day was everything I could have hoped for. I mean, it was a pretty regular Sunday… but the symbol of all that it means to finally be a mother means so much to me. We woke up and had breakfast at our regular Sunday spot, we stopped by a plant store, we painted in the sunroom, we had hibachi lunch (my fave LOL) and Nova screamed the whole time out of sheer joy. And then, right before Nova’s bedtime we changed into these matching dresses (by Thief & Bandit) and snapped a few photos in our yard during magic hour.
As cheesy as it sounds, Nova blows my mind every day. I still can’t believe she’s real. I am constantly on a loop of telling Jeremy how lucky I feel and how much I love her. I guess I’m still getting used to this new life. It’s the best and happiest season and I’m trying to just enjoy each day instead of thinking ahead for once.
Nova is in her sweetest stage right now. I can’t imagine it getting any sweeter.
Like the other day we were going to Whole Foods and she stopped at the door to West Elm and said “Can I go inside??” haha. We were like… “Ok sure”. So we walked around inside for a little bit, holding both of her hands and when we told her it was time to leave she pointed to a sofa and said, “Can we just snuggle for a little while?”
I’m so grateful for this season of life. If it never gets any better than this I can die happy… truly. This little girl is the greatest gift.
And on that note, I’ve been thinking about it and I am going to start posting here more regularly. Maybe not always the big long posts… but I just want to keep up with saving our memories somewhere because it’s all going by so quickly.
I hope you had a wonderful mother’s day as well!
