Mother's Day 2012!

Unfortunately, this Mother's Day was spent away from Portland, and consequently--the man that should've been spoiling me shamelessly-Adam. My besty, Natalie, had her sweet little boy, Finn, a couple of days earlier and so Jude and I traveled over to Rexburg this past Thursday to be with them. 
We've had a great time visiting with her and her sweet girls, let alone cuddling that darling little newborn. 
Yesterday, we enjoyed a beautiful church service, eating sickly amounts of candy, stuffing ourselves on Natalie's homemade macaroni and cheese, and oh, JUDE STARTED WALKING. For reals this time. Fer reals. Jude's been trying to keep up with the two girls here and all of sudden just decided it was time. And holy mother of all living, it was time. I mean, I know you've all noticed that my arms are borderline body-builder-competition-worthy, but seriously, I was dying carrying him around all the time. I took it as his gift to me--thanks, bud :).
It was a beautiful day and I am so thankful for my own mother and for the extraordinary woman that she is and for all of the women in my life. I have been very fortunate to have been exposed to fantastic women growing up, who have taught me of my worth, to never compromise my own integrity for the opinions of others, and to treat all others as the Savior would. I'm still working on it, but one day I hope to be just like them.

So proud of my little dude! Best Mother's Day gift ever, love--except for when you get old enough to buy me things. 
Happy Mother's Day to all of you beautiful moms and future moms!
