mother's day

I had a really beautiful Mother's day this past Sunday.
We didn't really have anything planned, which was exactly what I wanted. I thought a nice and slow morning where you eat breakfast leisurely without rushing somewhere would be bliss. I was woken up {after a little sleep in} with cuddles, snuggles and kisses from my two beautiful kiddos. 

I was given handmade cards, drawings and flowers from them both and Noah had made a very cute frame and photo at school for the fridge. 

Noah answered the 'all about my mum' printable and it made me smile because he thinks I am 25 and "from the ground to Daddy's neck" tall and that I am the best at cooking. Hubby also gave me a letter he had written to read while they made breakfast. 

Then everyone rushed back out to make me a breakfast of pancakes with whipped cream and real maple syrup. 

We just relaxed and enjoyed the morning - slowly getting dressed and going about our day. Then we decided to go browse plants at our local nursery and head to bunnings for a few things. 

After that we stopped by Freedom and I bought 2 of these

And then we headed out for some churros and hot chocolate by the sea. 
Not the best photo - but this is a famous San Churro hot chocolate with a scoop of white chocolate ice cream in it. Oh my!

This is my Mum and I 27ish years ago.
What made this day even better is my Mum was released from hospital on Sunday and was allowed to go home after spending a week in there having various tests and procedures done. We were preparing for bad news, and I was struggling with not being near her, feeling a little helpless being so far away. I am always homesick and I always miss my family. But when ever there are tough times, it is even harder to be away from them.
 I was so incredibly thankful that she was given the green light to go home. My Mum has been suffering with MS for 17 years. Over the past 9 or so it has really taken it's toll. I owe so very much to my Mum. She taught me a lot about being a mother and I am forever grateful to her for that. Thank you Mum. I love you!

I hope you had a beautiful day with your family, and for those of you who struggled through Mother's Day - biggest hugs to you x
