Happy Mother's Day!!

My amazing mom & son. Love, love, love them both.

Wow! I am blown away by all of the amazing comments on my Mother's Day Giveaway post. Pretty much every comment made me a little misty-eyed. Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to comment. It was much appreciated and I loved reading them.

And now (drum roll please) the winner of the giveaway (randomly chosen by my mom) is Veronica.

My mom left today and I miss her so much already. We had a wonderful time except for Friday morning when my son Sam fell and cut his lip. At the advice of our doctor we took him to the ER because the cut was on both his face and his lip. Apparently it's a tricky area because it scars easily. Anyway, after much drama (Sam had a fit anytime anyone got near him) they told us that a stitch wouldn't make any difference and there might be a tiny scar but probably not. The whole experience really got to me but I know this is the first of many with my very active little boy. Ugh!

And now after all of the family visits I have to get back to work. We have 2 Mother's Day events to go to so maybe Monday I'll think about work. It is Mother's Day after all, right?

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mother's out there!

Happy Mother's Day Melissa!

My mom LOVED my gift (your beautiful creation), and mentioned that beyond your including my note to her, there was even a special extra drawing that came with your personalization. She thought it all to be one of her favorite gifts in memory (she was once a painter herself) and says she's found the perfect place for it on the wall (of the home I grew up in back in Chicago). I can't wait to see it there when I return in June for the big 45th wedding anniversary!

Enjoy the day Melissa and thanks so much!
