Little Piece of Me | Mother’s Day

Picture of Tilly



Moms come in so many forms. They can be a person who brings you soup when you are sick. A hug in a time, they are scarce. A smile or word of encouragement when obstacles seem too big. Cuddles from your dog… I have many mothers in my life. Many people who have been there for me in all of these times, to me they have been a Mom even for just a brief moment.

For those of us who have a Mom – that is far away perhaps we are more flexible to this idea of Moms everywhere because its simply better than missing your own Mom all the time.

I have only been a mom for a brief second in time – and while it took me until motherhood to finally understand why Mom’s may like to be celebrated for all they do – this day has always been important to me. Any excuse to celebrate women – brings out the feminist in me.

Mother’s Day is also a reminder to me of all the women who are struggling with infertility and loss of a child – may we be sensitive and soft in our hearts on this day.

This year with my husband abroad I spent my Mother’s Day with 4 other Moms and one Dad.  Whether it be to actual children or furry friends – I got to spend my day with these incredible women and that was the best gift I could have received.  Starting with Mimosas, smiles and plotting a vacation get-a-away then finishing it with this amazing family pictured below.

Here are some personal but fun moments from my wonderful day. Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms!
