Sunday will be my very first Mother's Day as a mama. (Well, to a human anyway; I absolutely considered myself a mother to Bubby dog too.) My mom and I are very close, and this has always been a special day because of that. But there's something even more magical about it now that I have Essley. I don't look at Mother's Day as a holiday focused on buying gifts or materialistic spoiling (although I certainly wouldn't complain if I was brought breakfast in bed, hint hint) as much as I view it as a day to celebrate the indescribably beautiful relationship between mothers and their children. The bond that I have with Essley - and with my mom as well - is something that is unique to that type of relationship. And I think that is worth celebration.
Recently, I started a Motherhood board on Pinterest. I'd come across so many really lovely images that document the mama/child bond, and I wanted a place to save them all. In honor of Mother's Day, I thought I'd share some of my favorites with you all. Whether you are a mother (fur babies count too!), a child, or both, I hope that your Mother's Day is full of the kind of love that these photographs exude.
