Mother’s Day <3

Mother’s Day 2011 brought cards and texts and phone calls from friends, family and co-workers, wishing me a happy almost-Mother’s Day. It was touching that people thought of me as a mother while I was still pregnant.

Come Mother’s Day 2012, I was actually a full-fledged mother and my daughter was not far from being full-blown toddler. I was blessed to have received so many kind words and lovely gifts – the best of all, being back home with my daughter.

Beautiful flowers from my mother, grandmother and brother.*

Charm bracelet from my husband. “L” for our last name and the red jewel for Mila’s birthday month.*
