Happy late Mother's Day to all of the mommas out there. I hope you had a relaxing weekend. Ryan surprised me with an impromptu trip to the Western coast of Washington. We went to Forks and La Push (yes, the Twilight place-more on that later) and then into the Olympic National Forest where we explored the Hoh Rain Forest, which is pretty much awesome. So much green mossiness! Of course I was so busy enjoying taking pictures that I forgot to give Ryan the camera and get a picture of me on Mother's Day. Oh well. :)
While it's nice to be spoiled on Mom's Day, it's also nice just to reflect on and appreciate the people that made me a mom. Ryan and Nate have given me the greatest gift by turning me into a mother. It's the most rewarding job, but also at times the most challenging. I know that it is slowly turning me into a better person. For that, I am grateful.
