Here are some simple things I really love and enjoy: family, traveling, and good food. On a sub list somewhere "attending weddings" and "insanely comfortable hotel beds" would also be included, and lucky me, each of these things were included in my Mother's Day weekend.
It's safe to say that this year was the best yet. Handmade cards from the kids (good job, Hank!), sleeping in just a bit, and a special brunch at a really delicious place. I didn't want anything fancy. Most of all I just wanted to spend time with my family, and when we found out that our friend Scott's wedding happened to fall on Mother's Day weekend we figured we would just make a little trip of it and spend the weekend in Tucson.
It was such a beautiful wedding, and a really nice way to spend time together, dancing on the makeshift backyard dance floor with our family of friends and toasting to the new couple. Both of the boys made it until about 9:30pm and then we headed back to the hotel. The next morning we grabbed brunch at Ascension to Food Cafe, an amazing vegan restaurant in downtown Tucson. I can't recommend it enough! We swung by my parents' on the way back up north, and by the time I laid my head down on my pillow that night I was so tired, but full of so much thankfulness for such a great time.
Here are some photos, and I hope your weekend was just a great. xo
