#1,245 Mother’s Day.
by Erin Napier
I could barely contain my excitement about taking mama to The Great Gatsby matinee for my second round. I woke up and cleaned house then jumped in the shower as Ben was heading out the door to campaign for the morning. When I got out of the shower I found a lovely surprise in the kitchen. He’d cut roses from our yard and left them for me to find. That’s a very good man.
After the movie we headed out to Clark’s house for a mother’s day cookout. I gave mama a new striped linen beach bag for her trip to St. Marten that’s coming up.
I mean how cute is she?!
And on an un-mama related note—we framed the Yoknapatawpha print and hung it in the new manly half bath. I think it’s the very thing it was missing. Perfect!
