Much Ado About Monday {No.59}

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful Mother's Day! Mine has been absolutely perfect! My youngest came in our room this morning and woke me up by saying I love you mommy. It was the first time she's said it all together like that, almost like she had practiced for the day :-)  Most importantly, it was after 8 o'clock! We went out for brunch with our family and over to Nanna's house for a nice swim afterwards. I bought a distressed ceramic pot and planted some succulents for my mom's gift. I absolutely love how it looks on her front step. 

My husband surprised me with this awesome photo project in a beautiful frame! And I just had to share :-)

We had a great week at Huckleberry Love. Whitney Hollingshead guest posted about teaching children money management. Emily gave a home tour  of her (gorgeous) newly listed home. We are so very sad that she's leaving us, but are excited for her family and big changes. And I shared a few photos from Harry's pirate party. If you haven't checked it out already, be sure to stop by!

So in the spirit of celebrating Mom, let's get this party started! A big thank you to all those who joined in on Much Ado About Monday last week. We had so many great link ups, and here are a few of our favorites!
