That’s a Wrap!

Well the craziness at work has come to an end and we move into a blissful summer schedule. Even though it means getting to work 30mts earlier and leaving later. {My snooze button never looked so good}

This weekend was a blast :) Mom and I headed down to the beach at the crack of dawn Sat to see one of her former students graduate! So cool to know that my mom has impacted such a beautiful young lady! Gabby is amazing! I was so proud of her. I did feel a bit old knowing that all these guys were graduating..it seems like yesterday I was giving them rides to softball practice and home from school. She met the most wonderful boy during her time at college and I was thoroughly impressed with him! This was the first I got to meet Joe :)

We spent the day catching up with old friends and making new ones. I love being able to spend time with my mom :) We stay so busy that I don’t often get time to just talk with her. We wrapped up the day with a little shopping spree. What road trip to the beach is complete without one?

Sunday was Mother’s Day :) Thankfully my mom’s present made it just in time thanks to Lindsay Phillips! I bought my mom their new Key Largo Snap Hanger and she loved it!

I’m rather envious as my snap collection is about as large as my mom’s!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Lindsay Phillips shoes they are amazing! One shoe a zillion different styles. All I do is change the snap to match whatever I’m wearing. I was skeptical at first and thought it was kind of dumb (just being honest!) until I bought a pair. I LOVE THEM! I don’t have to buy a new pair of shoes to match an outfit now. (I own snaps in almost every major color and they typically go with everything.)

If you’re an avid flip-flop or sandal wearer you should give them a try! They go on sale periodically on the website :) My favorite are the silver sparkle sandals.

We spent Sunday lunch at Grammy’s :) It makes me sad to think there will come a day when that won’t be an option anymore. Until then, I plan on going as often as I can. Life is too short not to enjoy my family.ย  Sunday afternoon was spent napping and shopping with my cousin :) My poor sister was so sick she didn’t get out of bed Sunday until 7pm. I couldn’t even bribe her out with food….that’s when you know they’re really sick.

To all the Mother’s out there :) You’re my heroes. You work 15 different jobs everyday. You love spaghetti noodle necklaces and drawings that make no sense. You are fearless and brave and tender and I can’t begin to tell you how amazing you are.

My friend Justin’s words always come back to my mind on this day. Justin’s mom walked out on him when he was 4 years old. She never spoke or saw him again. His dad remarried a few years later. As we stood at his high school graduation he looked at his (step) mom and this is what he said: “While you may not be my birth mother, You are the mother of my heart.” I thought my heart would melt. That is what I want! To be the mother of a precious heart. I hope that one day, I too will be a mother to a precious child. I hope that I am half as amazing as all of you! You inspire me to be great :) So to all you mammas :) YOU ARE AMAZING!

Much Love! ~Lemon
