Happy Mother's Day and a house anniversary

There was a time, not too long ago, when I wondered if I'd ever be able to celebrate Mother's day as a mom. 
It is a privelege for me to be able to celebrate it firsthand.

Here's me, with our little blessing, on my first Mother's day:
(yes, that is me- sans blonde hair....)

May 2001
This was also our very first house we purchased.  A cute 1956 cottage. 

Mother's Day also marks the third anniversary of the weekend we moved into our home (#4)!!  That was quite a gift! 

There's a lot more on the agenda for sprucing up the exterior, but here we are today.
(hint: that window up above the garage will get some eye candy soon....)

And most importantly, I am so thankful for my mom.  She is a great friend, and has taught me so much. 
It is wonderful to have her in my life, and living so close by to do fun things with.
