Mama Love

Mama Love

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.

    I'm a little sad that I wasn't able to get a flight to my mom's on Mother's Day, but I'll be seeing her a week later :)
    Hope your day is special!

    1. I agree! I'm lucky that I still have my mom here, but many people don't - and that doesn't make their Mother's Days any less meaningful. <3

  8. That is exactly what Mother's Day (and Father's Day for that matter) should be about. I felt kind of silly buying my mom a gift, I felt like I should just have her over at my house instead to just spend time as a whole fam. Lovely photo finds!
