{ big thank you } to my Matty for making my first mother's day a wonderful one. Of course I wished and hoped for something sweet but now I have a lot to live up to for father's day although last year I gave him a son so not sure how top that! Matt gave me the sweetest card and it was filled with some of the most beautiful words but one word that stuck out most to me was the word "proud" he's so proud of me and I wish could adequately express to him how much it means to me to hear that from him.

Enclosed in the card was the first of 3 wonderful gifts. A book mark which I desperately needed just a few weeks ago he was making fun of me using the wrapper from a cough drop to mark my place in this book I'm reading { Eat, Pray, Love }. But what makes the book mark special is that it has part of the quote that's on my blog page "Believe in the beauty of your dreams." so sweet. My second gift was equally sweet an electric ice cream maker, which I know we will have fun with this summer! My third gift is a necklace that my good friend Jana has been commissioned to make for me. Matt had her make a necklace for me a few years ago for our anniversary with a saphire charm and I wear it almost every day. I don't have the necklace yet but I do know that it is Dealey inspired and he designed it with Jana with the thought that he wanted a cool/modern way for me to have my Dealey with me when I'm working or away from him. I'll definitely post a picture when I get it!

Matt took a picture of me singing a two weeks ago on stage and I just remembered I said I'd post a picture when I got one. I got to sing yesterday as well and each week it becomes more and more fun. love it! Hope all the mom's had a wonderful Mother's Day as well, don't forget to thank your husbands for remembering to make the day special!
