You know how it feels the day after Christmas: You've been counting down to the day for the past year, it came, it was wonderful and then it inevitably had to come to a close?
That's a little how I feel today, the day after Mother's Day.
I know how blessed I am that I have my mom to celebrate this day with and don't take it for granted.
I didn't have to bug my son about going to church and brushing his hair, received an incredibly beautiful letter from my daughter who couldn't join us, didn't have to plan any meals and was treated to a delightful brunch.
And it surely doesn't hurt that I was gifted with a gift certificate for some badly needed spa services. (I would include a photo of the current state of my fingernails, but fear you would lose all respect for me)
AND, on top of everything, I found some great tidbits on the internet to share with you lovelies.

I just signed up for their mailing list. I would LOVE to do one of these retreats.
If you have an Amazon Prime membership, check your account, get your coupon and pop over to Whole Foods before the end of the day tomorrow (May 15) for lovely $10 tulip bouquets.
Not only will I be popping into Whole Foods today, but since we now have an Aldi, I'll be running in for this (or maybe several of them).
This may be just me, but this sounds delish! Putting it on my ‘to make' list.
Brush on Sunscreen?! Who knew?
Now I just need to have a part to make these!

Jan's comment from on the post on downsizing is actually a lovely book review. I have it on hold at my library and will pick it up today.
… Plum Johnson had written a book and was there to sign and sale. (My daughter) enjoyed so much hearing her speak, that she bought the book and gave it to me. It is called They Left Us Everything. It is the story of siblings, after their parents die, going through the family home to empty it to sell. It was a beautifully told story about how well they got to know their Mom and Dad by their accumulation of momentos.
Have a beautiful day my friends.
