I hope you all had a nice weekend and a lovely Mother’s Day. Maybe you got to enjoy a Mother’s Day brunch, maybe you sent your Mom flowers, maybe it was just a phone call. Regardless of how it was celebrated, I hope that all the Moms reading this enjoyed their day.
Seeing as how I live 4.5 hours away from my Mom, and Z’s is 18 hours away, seeing them on Sunday wasn’t exactly a feasible option.
So today I thought I’d celebrate them both.
To our Moms: Thank you for the years of support, phone calls, advice, care packages, meals, tips, memories and love. – K & Z

I did what I do best: be creative. I made each of our Moms a special picture collage.
Inspired by an idea I saw on Pinterest, I thought it would be fun to recreate a childhood picture to give to my Mom.
Since my brother was home I was able to snap one of him asleep on the couch holding a carrot (??? don’t ask my why). I was also please to find THE EXACT dress from the photo tucked away in the back of my Mom’s closet.
This was such a fun activity. I want to do more! It’s crazy way to watch yourself grow up…
Happy Belated Mother’s Day!
