It's good to be a Mom

I'm still delighting in my fantastic 1st Mother's Day spent in sunny South Carolina to celebrate one of my dearest friends getting married. Believe me when I tell you that her wedding must have been THE southern event of the season! Everything, including the bride was absolutely stunning and it was an honor to share in such a special day with her and see her so happy. 

This also translated for me into a sweet 5 day trip to basque in the sun with the family. Score! The weather was perfect, high 80's, plenty of sunshine, cold drinks, great friends and great times. What could be better, you ask? Well, for starters not coming home to 49 degree damp weather, but I digress.
 I did get to spend my 1st Mother's Day with the little man, the hubbs and lots of friends, relaxing both on the beach and poolside, with champagne, which is a pretty great way to spend the day-trust me.
 Simple pleasures. 
Life is good. 

 I hope everyone else enjoyed their Mother's Day as well!
A special Happy Happy to my own Mother (who I did call on Sunday) for had it not been for her, I wouldn't be here and likewise, neither would Little Man- who simply rocks my world. 
I love you Mom. xo
Here are a few snapshots of our trip.

Stayin' Cool

 It feels like summer has arrived here in the Northeast. Yesterday was 90 degrees and sunny all day (aka HOT) so we headed south for the day to enjoy the gorgeous weather and have some fun. The hubbs had a soccer game earlier in the morning so Little Man and I went to cheer him on. We had a blast running around at the park and playing with friends while we watched the match. 

After the game, we headed to the beach to our favorite summer lunch spot right on the water where we gorged ourselves with delicious seafood and ice cold refreshing cocktails. Ahhhh summer, how I've missed you. The above picture was taken of LM enjoying his day out, cool shades courtesy of Dad. 

The hubbs and I are originally both from the same area at the beach but now live a distance away from it and it is always this time of year that has us yearning to get back. It helps that our family still lives there so we can visit whenever we want, but it would be great to have our own spot there again someday. I miss waking up to salty air and sand in my sheets. (sigh) 

After a long winter, it definitely feels good to know that summer is almost here! 
I hope everyone else enjoyed the weekend as much as we did!
