Mother's Day was all the more wonderful for me this year as I came home from the Retreat with fresh ideas and perspective and renewed love for my family.
It was so fun to have my mom and dad come up from Salt Lake and spend the afternoon with us. My kids were so excited to give their gifts to Grammie and to me.

and Liza set the table beautifully.
I think my favorite part of the day was the one-on-one time I spent with each child. It's my little tradition on Mother's Day to go on a short walk with each kid and tell them what I love about being their mom. It was beautiful to see their eyes shine as I focused entirely on the positive. And it was great for me to really think through the many wonderful and unique things I love about mothering each of them. Plus it was a gorgeous spring day with flowers and blossoms bursting out everywhere. Love that.
Here's another favorite from the Mother's Day photoshoot that Jared did for me (This is something I ask for every year - I find I don't end up with many photos of myself with my kids since I'm usually the one behind the camera!)
