A Perfect Day

Today, was in fact, a perfect day.

It started with a yummy breakfast sandwich....bacon, egg and cheese biscuit to be exact. I've been trying to eat healthy breakfasts and this was a delightful way to be spoiled.

Isabella then gave me a card which she signed and picked out herself--it had 2 adorable kitties on the front (one momma and one baby). She and I LOVE our cat so this was the perfect card...

Leo and Bella then gave me two gifts (they surprised me with a trip to Barnes and Noble last nite to treat me with a Starbucks and a brand new book! My two sweethearts know me all too well.)--they got me a new table for our patio out back and Marley and Me...one of my favorite movies.

I then took a LOOOONG nap snuggled in bed and after that we planted flowers in two pots we had bought a month ago. Leo then grilled out some delicious steaks for us and we played outside while he cooked.

But my favorite part of the day?

Leo came out to the living room where I had been reading. He took my hand and told me he needed to show me something....he then led me into our bathroom which he had filled up our tub to the top with bubbles. He had lit a candle. He had poured me a Coke Zero in my favorite pink glass. Had a wash cloth out and turned on a Chris Botti cd.

Wow. I was speechless, breathless...and crying (of course! Crazy hormones!!). He and Isabella left me in there to relax...by myself and with some beautiful music.

It was a perfect day...a perfect Mother's Day...spent with my 2 favorite people.

Happy Mother's Day to all mom's--whether you have angels in heaven or angels on earth, you are a mom.
