I’ve made good progress on the bestie’s baby blanket (it’s actually starting to look like a blanket, hurray!). I’m hoping to have the finished product in her hands come July, when I go home for my cousin’s wedding. She’ll have her a baby boy in September and I won’t get to meet him until Christmastime, but I’m glad he’ll at least have this blanket from his godmother. :)
Today is also Mother’s Day, so of course I called my mom to tell her how much I love and appreciate her. I’ll call again come Tuesday, since it’s Mother’s Day in Mexico (and we pretty much acknowledge both back home). And next year, my best friend will be celebrating both as a first-time mom.
I hope all mothers today were shown some love and appreciation from their kids and that future moms look forward to their first real celebration of an important holiday. :)
