currently // may


celebrating: my first Mother's Day! C keeps asking me what I want to do, but I don't really have a good answer. Some quality family downtime will be nice, and maybe I can sneak away for a pedicure... that certainly wouldn't be terrible.

reading: "The Distant Hours" by Kate Morton. I discovered this author when C bought me "The Lake House" for Valentine's Day. I liked her writing style very well, so sought out another of her books to read next. It's taking me a long time to work my way through (new mom = not much time for reading!) but I am enjoying it.

pondering: what mamas did before swings - I can't imagine life without ours! It's been a consistent "happy place" for the baby since day one.

sipping: lots of water, Mother's Milk tea, and blue Gatorade. The first two for obvious reasons, the last because I read online that it's also good for milk production. Seems kind of silly, but a little bit can't hurt!

going: to the lake at the end of the month! We have a wedding to attend that is closer to the lake house than our house, so we will stay there for the weekend. It will be the baby's third trip! We are loving exposing him to this fun aspect of our lives. There are so many memories to be made!

linking up with In Residence and Gold & Bloom!

SO awesome to be celebrating your first mother's day! I hope you get that pedicure and lots of quality time with your little family :) We just set up our swing this week and I hope my man loves it as much as yours does hehe!

Aww congrats on your first Mothers Day. My birthday actually falls on Mothers Day every 5 or 6 years like this year. So I can't imagine how I'll feel on my first Mothers Day / Birthday lol.

Ouu a Lake Side wedding sounds beautiful. I can't wait to read all about it.

We actually never had a swing for R, and everyone was like ???? But we made it! I love Kate Morton so much. Her books are so creative and I love her writing!

I love Kate Morton's books - but they are long! We have loved taking our little one to our lake place too - so fun to expand your family into all the areas you love. Happy first Mother's Day!
