Best Mommy's Day! Ever.


Really! I don't know what exactly it was about this last Mother's Day,
but it was just the best one yet!
Hope all you lovely mama's got spoiled rotten, & enjoyed YOUR day.

On a side note: lately... I am becoming even worse w/ my time management.
There are just never enough hours in the day.
What's new though, ey?!

SO.
 I'm gonna make this a quickie, & share the majority of our special Mama's Day pics tomorrow...

Here's the beginning of our day...

I get a special "i wuv u, mommeee" hug from monkey as soon as I woke up.
(He's super smart, he's 3, but knew it was hug a mommy day!)

THEN...
Something  VERY magical happend.

Looky what this surprised mama got from the sweetest (most handsome) fellas in all the land.
Yay! Oh. I have wanted this lens baby for quite a while.
My sweetie sure does know me...
A good bottle of Riesling, and a lens!

You never cease to amaze me, honey.
I'm just so proud that I get to have a family w/ you, the love of my life!

 1st pics w/ the new baby had to be of my boys!

These were literally my 1st two shots taken w/ the Canon 1.8 50mm.
I need a little practice, but quite smitten.
(with my boys, & the lens) Lol.
