FRIDAY - Yes, we pretty much celebrated an entire weekend around here...and it was marvelous. We kicked it off with a May Day Celebration at McCartney's preschool on Friday. It was spectacularly sunny, and the smiles on the kids' faces made the event even brighter.
SATURDAY - I enjoyed coffee on the deck. Our view of the lake is definitely at a distance...but it close enough to be a reminder that the ice is gone!
Dan worked for a bit, and I went to a fascinating Yoga & Tarot class - super inspiring, and a great explanation of the Journey of the Fool. When I finished up class, Dan & I stopped in at Firebird Cafe for lunch - one of those little local gems that we've passed a million times but never stopped at. Delicious! We ended the day with a neighborhood (belated) Cinco de Mayo party - so.much.fun.
SUNDAY - Dan & Austin collaborated on an awesome gift - a beautiful teapot set, wrapped in the most amazing Wonder Woman handmade giftwrap. Look at that title detail! And can you even stand the precise signatures from McCartney??
(ps. We don't draw a distinction between Mother's Day & step-Mother's Day. We talk a lot about different types of Moms in our house...birth Moms, Moms, step/bonus-Moms. ALL Moms are celebrated!)
After a pretty decadent Sunday brunch at The Spot (with Austin & Dan), Dan & I did a little shopping...and then indulged in smoked maple lattes at Scout & Company. I managed to get an episode of Grey's Anatomy & a quick nap (I'm a terrible napper), and chatted with my birthday girl. We ended our evening in Burlington at a performance of the Spielpalast Cabaret.
This marked my 24th Mother's Day, and I can honestly say that it was one of the best yet. You've set the bar pretty high, Mr. Holtz....
(yes, I realize that I neglected to get photos with any of the kids - will have to remedy that!!)
