“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is…and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” ― Donna Ball
I don’t think the above words could be any truer. Being a mother is such a blessing, but isn’t it hard moms? From personal experience, it’s quite an overwhelming task but one I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. The pressure of raising these little monsters into half decent human beings can take a toll on us all, but just the smallest act of love and kindness from them proves that somewhere, in the midst of all the sleepless nights, yells, frustrations, endless homework tasks, and many other daily routines, there is SOMETHING we are doing right.
I had many incredible dads and family members join in during Mothers’ Day Minis this year, but I decided to dedicate this post just for moms since we’re only a few days away from Mother’s Day. This year I wanted something timeless and beautiful for my moms. I contacted Mi Vintage Rentals and Liz really outdid herself. I just adore Mother’s Day Minis because moms don’t stay back behind the camera. They dress us and for once, get in front of the camera. My only regret from this year’s minis is that I didn’t get a chance to take some photos with my very own cuties.
Take a peek into just a little bit of the day. Oh, and how can I forget, a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, step moms, expecting moms, moms that aren’t moms yet but in their hearts they sure are and will be one day, moms who have lost their babies, and of course dads or anyone else who steps up as a mom. Don’t forget, YOU ROCK MOMS!
