but wonderful nonetheless! This last year has been a challenging one. I find myself constantly trying to figure out what the heck I was thinking when I thought "I'll have a baby and stay home while trying to run my business, it will be perfect!" Well, it's not perfect, but it's my life and I love it in all of it craziness! As much I wish I had more time to pursue MY goals, I am so thankful that I have a little partner in my duties. Yes, she makes things harder and take longer, but I feel like we are a team. When I say "ok, we have to take some pictures of the clothes," Ruby quickly crawls over and points at my camera case. When I make jewelry, she always want to try it on and carry it around. It was a lot more lonely working by myself than it is now. I love being Ruby's mom and I wouldn't trade it for anything, not even more time.
Yesterday we had a nice Mother's day at our home. I prepared some simple "girlie" treats and we enjoyed a lot of laughter. It was very special to share Mother's Day with my Mom because I look up to her so much and I love that we can relate in this new way. I thought a lot about my mom's mom yesterday, she is no longer with us, but I feel like we were able to honor her. We used her china for the appetizers and I made my mom a necklace out of a little medal her mom had received in the 60's for being the Auxilary Club President. She really liked it. My hubby cooked dinner and it was delicious. I made some vanilla cupcakes with blackberry whipped cream frosting and served sorbet for dessert. It was a wonderful day!
