My first Mother's Day

MotherhoodSamantha WetterholmComment

I had a wonderful first Mother’s Day. It all started at a 2am feeding, when Paul whispered Happy Mother’s Day to me while we stared at our beautiful daughter. We celebrated with a quiet day at home then a late lunch at my favorite gourmet burger place. My dad was in town to meet Emma and celebrate Mother’s Day with us too. Paul bought me a beautiful necklace. It’s so dainty and beautiful and is now one of my favorite pieces of jewelry that I own. I still haven’t wrapped my mind around the fact that I am a mother. This is surreal. It is really tough but worth it.

Here’s to many more Mother’s Day celebrations.
