The first Mom I am celebrating is a first time/expectant mother!! My blog bestie- Kristi Murphy from the DIY blog Kristi Murphy!
She is pregnant and due in just a couple weeks- her first Mother’s Day!! Becoming a Mom is the best thing ever, I am sooooo excited for her!!! She deserves a huge bouquet- growing a baby is HARD work! She is the sweetest and her soon-to-be baby is a very lucky child to get her as a Mom, I cannot wait to meet him or her (it’s a surprise!)
Bouquet- 100 Blooms of Sunshine for Mom
Best friends from the day we met when we were 20, so we have been friends for 3 whole years now! (just kidding 😉 She has two young children about the same age as mine and makes many nights humorous with encouragement via text. She also does not judge me when I say I want to leave the kids, go to a beach and drink a bottle of rum. (Apparently, I am a pirate in my fantasies?)
Bouquet- Lavish Roses
And now MY MOM! She is awesome and I did not realize all the sacrifices she made until I had kids (sorry for those sleepless nights, Mom!). She is an artist and taught me ALL the painters when I was young. At 7 years old, I had the odd talent of being able to name the artist by looking at a painting. My favorite is probably Degas, I loved his ballet paintings (if you follow me on Pinterest, you probably know that ballet imagery is a fav of mine). Living in New York, we had ample opportunity to see great artists works, but she still thought it was not enough and took me to the Louvre when I was 8 years old. I have zero talent in drawing- I cannot draw a stick figure- but clearly some of her creative genes and teachings stuck 😉
Bouquet- Monet’s Garden
