Mother's Day

5/06/2011

{From left: my mom, me, my maternal grandma, and my sister-in-law Ryan last spring at a baby shower before Avery's arrival}

Do you have plans to celebrate Mother's Day readers? My parents are coming down to visit Ian and I on Sunday afternoon (Ian's mom is on the East Coast but he has flowers en route!). We have a long walk along La Jolla Cove planned followed by margaritas and Mexican food for dinner. I won't say what I got my mom as a gift because she is one of our most loyal readers but I can't wait for her to open it!

This Mother's Day is extra special because my nephew Chase Varner Brooks was born this morning! Avery's little brother weighs 8 lbs and is 21 inches long.

Also, happy Mother's Day to my co-blogger Alexa and all of you mothers out there!

AND the winner of this week's giveaway is ... Katherine!
