Mother's Day Giveaway
my mom, Sam & me
It's 4:00 in the afternoon on Sunday and I just woke up from this amazing and intense dream. Sam and Ian are still napping. A rare family nap! So great. The windows are open and it's raining outside. A perfect napping day. Anyway, back to my dream. I dreamed that Ian, Sam and I won a trip to go around the world in one day. We must have been on the Concord because how else would that be possible, right? But I guess I shouldn't get into the logistics. It was so great though because I remember everything in the dream. At one point we were swimming in Australia and the water was a deep wine color and the waves were flat slabs that kind of looked like Jello. And, I remember that my mom was there too. It was such a wonderful feeling to float in that thick water. And Sam could magically swim on his own even though he isn't even two yet! And part of the dream was me waking up and asking my husband if it really did happen because it was too amazing to be true. And he said "Yes, honey, it actually happened." Imagine my disappointment when I actually did wake up.
So, it got me thinking that in my perfect dream where my family was swimming in these exotic waters that my mom was there too and it inspired me to do my first giveaway. Because I am so lucky to have such an amazing mom and such an amazing son. So...I'm really feeling Mother's Day this year.
The giveaway will be 2 of my Mother's Day prints seen in this post. The winner will get to choose which 2 prints. And all you have to do is comment on this post and say a little something about your mother or what being a mother means to you. It doesn't have to be an essay. I just thought it would be nice to read the comments. The winner will be chosen at random by my mom who is visiting this week. I will announce the winner on, of course, Mother's Day.
Happy Mother's Week!
