It's hard to believe that I've celebrated Mother's Day for four years now. I've received extra love and attention on a day that brought so much hurt before I had Evy. I don't take it for granted, and I also don't celebrate without considering what it's like on the other side. I will forever be aware of the mix of emotions this day can bring and I believe I'm a better mom for it.
This Mother's Day, my first with the twins, was spent at the beach with Mark's parents and aunt Bala (who owns the beach house we stayed in). It also marked Carter and Beckett's five month birthday.
Mark took a few pictures of me with part of my brood, but Levi was boycotting pictures at the time. I caught some of him playing on the beach along with the rest of the fam.

Our last day at the beach was on Mother's Day. It was a beauty.
And even though it's not from the beach, I wanted to have a record of this sweet Mother's Day worksheet Evy gave me from her preschool. She is the one who made me a mama and I am so proud of her in every way, especially when she underestimates my age.
Again, I feel so blessed to live this life with these amazing kiddos. Happy belated Mother's Day to all the amazing mamas out there. May we never take it for granted!
