It’s Friday, which means we’re about to bid you farewell for the weekend. But this, my loves, is a special weekend. It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday. My very first official Mother’s Day as a mom. And on this side of the equation, pictures like this from the gorgeous Michigan wedding earlier this week are the ones that catch in my throat. Those moments between a mother and her child on his or her wedding day. I have a four month old, is it too early to cry about that? So have a sweet, sweet weekend, and don’t forget to kiss those Mother’s of the Bride. xoxo
