Happy Mother's Day!
First off I was not woken up at 6:00 in the morning. T. got up with the girls and they took the dogs for a long walk and I heard nothing until about 8:00...this is unheard of in our house so I was really pleased. Then came the gifts.
My youngest one had a beautiful card and a silhouette drawn and cut out on a piece of paper and my oldest had a card with a poem that she had written for me, a dolphin figure that she made and a small picture frame. Those gifts are so incredible for me and become true treasures. T. pulled out all the stops and arranged for the girls to have sleep overs at their friends house and for him and I to have a weekend away!!! This is very badly needed and has not been done due to crazy circumstances...hurricanes, car accidents, sicknesses etc. So keep the old fingers crossed on this one!
T. also made me an incredible breakfast omelet. It was filled with all of my favorite things...sauteed spinach, feta cheese and avocado. Life doesn't get much better than this...oh wait, yes it does. He was able to get 2 mangrove snappers for us to grill for dinner. That will be tomorrow's post!
