It wasn't until Mother's Day came though, that I really got to thinking about the symbolism reflected in a lemon pound cake for Mother's Day.
On Mother's Day I have SO many things to celebrate-- I have two handsome little blessings from the Lord, I have a wonderful and supportive Step Mother, and I absolutely adore my Mother-In-Law, but amongst all of those wonderful things, Mother's day is still bittersweet missing my Mom. A lot like a lemon pound cake.
I will say that this Mother's Day weekend was most definitely a good one-- It started out Saturday night when we surprised my Mother-In-Law with dinner. My Brother-In-Laws and their wives, (and all the kiddos) we all showed up with baked spaghetti, salad and garlic bread. It was yummy yummy, and it was a nice treat to all get together and catch up.
Then Sunday we went to church as a family and headed over to my Sister's house to have lunch with my family. Grilled chicken, salad, baked beans, lemon pound cake and homemade Oreo ice cream.
And my wonderful husband and little boys showered me with a couple gifts and a super sweet card too. I got a plate and 2 charms for my Origami Owl necklace and a navy blue maxi dress.
Kendra's page, she'll help you order and answer your questions. There's SO many charms to pick from, it's kind of addicting.
And here's some photos of the two little reasons that I even get to celebrate Mother's day as a Mother.
