How lucky am to have such caring people in my life? A few days have passed and I am still feeling so loved and appreciated. I am so happy that I was finally able to spend a Mother's Day as a mother with my Mom. And how cute is that basket Alan put together? Everything is from Target, which couldn't have been more perfect, being that I love Target and often spend hours of my day there. This was a Mother's Day for the books, for sure. I hope all of you beautiful Mama's felt loved and appreciated, and if by chance you didn't --just know there are so many people who admire your strength as a Mother. I love scrolling through Instagram and seeing all the special moments you share with your littles, you are all an inspiration, and that's something I want you to know everyday, not just on Mother's Day.
I love that I get to spend time with my daughter, I love seeing her grow more each day I am so thankful that I have that opportunity to spend every day with her. I had Lyla when I was 19 years old, but it never felt like I was a teenager having a kid, I guess I always knew that motherhood was something I would enjoy. Don't get me wrong, motherhood is challenging, and there are definitely times I feel like a complete failure, but that's also the beauty of Motherhood; you are just as much of a learner as your children. Lyla has taught me a lot about myself, being her mom has forced me to acknowledge the parts of myself that I don't necessarily like, and in doing that I have become someone I like more and more each day--that is the greatest gift I could ever receive.
