happy mother’s day {of joy & love}

happy mother’s day!

this is my baby boy…taken at our family photo day with My Four Hen’s Photography – check out her blog post on our session and her beautiful site.  If you are in CT…this is your photographer, for sure!

well, mother’s day takes on a whole new meaning for me now that I have a beautiful baby boy.  this is my second mother’s day and this day is extra special for me personally because it took so long and we went through so much to have him.

Being a mom is the greatest gift and has given me more that I could have ever imagined.  I lost my mom at 15 and this day always used to be a reminder of how sad I was to lose her at such a young age and I always wished she could know me for who I am today.  today is still a reminder of how much I loved her and how much I miss her and wished she were her to know Ben…and know me as a mom.  I feel the same way about my beautiful grandmother who I lost at 21.  She was the sweetest grandma ever and I miss her everyday.  This is why you always need to live for today and make the best of everyday with those you love.

but, today is amazing because I have an amazing stepmother (who really brought me up) and a very special mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law – I cherish all of them everyday.  I am very lucky to have them all in my life…and so is Ben.

I hope everyone has a wonderful mother’s day.  If you are a mom, enjoy your special day and if you are a mommy-to-be – you are a mom already…you are just in the baking & nesting stage!  If you are struggling to have a baby – please have faith and hope, like I did.  It can and will happen…some way.  You have to believe…and you have to put one foot in front of the other and do everything you can to make it happen.  don’t give up because being a mom is the

best thing I ever did.
