A Picnic For My Mama.

Lately, more than ever, I've been wanting to spend a day celebrating my mom and reiterating how much I appreciate her. Mother's Day gave me a perfect push to do just that. My mom has always been the person who has supported me the most in everything and during the last year, she's been especially supportive with my health. She's held my hand at every doctor's appointment. She'd wake up at all hours of the night to make sure I got my medicine on time. She's just unbelievable, I'm telling you.

I think part of the reason that I'm fighting so hard for the chance to be a mom someday is because I want to give my children the kind of life that I have, where I never have to question or wonder if my mom loves me, because her actions and words show it a thousand times a day.

So there's that sappiness.

More than anything else, I thought my mom deserved (and would like) an afternoon out of the house.
So I planned us a little picnic.

^ Sometimes, overestimating the amount of time before a self-timer photo is taken.. makes for an awkward candid shot haha. 
I kind of like it. :)

It was unanimous that our favorite snack from the picnic was the pears with goat cheese and dried cranberries. I definitely encourage you to try that combo sometime, if you haven't already. It's a winner!

Also, super proud of that little floral monogram that I made my mom. Pressed flowers are the prettiest!

Already trying to figure out when we could have our next relaxing afternoon.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.

    glad to hear you're recovering well!

    ps. where did you get your picnic blanket?

    1. Thank you very much! I actually thrifted that blanket for $2, but I'd love to invest in a nicer one. They make cute ones that I've seen on Etsy that are specifically for picnics! Large with waterproof bottoms :)

    2. You seem to always find the cutest thrift finds hah.
      Niice - I'll have to browse Etsy :)
