Columbia SC Child Photographer | Happy Mother’s Day!

May 10, 2009

Today was such a wonderful day. There was nothing extraordinarily special planned for today. In fact, my little family spent time today driving around looking at housing for our upcoming relocation back to Columbia. That doesn’t sound particularly interesting, I am sure. But I don’t know if I could have enjoyed the day any more. Me and the hubs and our beautiful daughter and our totally rotten (and sooooo much-loved) pooch headed to Cola and drove around for hours. We stopped at Baskin-Robbins, which is one of our favorite treats, and even the dog got a small cup of soft-serve vanilla! We took breaks to play at a couple of neighborhood parks. And on the way home, my wonderful husband pulled the car over on the side of the highway at an area I have been talking about where there is a wonderful patch of wild flowers growing – just so I could take some images of my daughter. I couldn’t get out of the car fast enough. I felt so happy!

Mother’s Day is one of my favorite days of the year. It is a day that I am always so humbled and reminded of just how fortunate I am – for being the daughter of a wise, wonderful, loving, and outrageously beautiful (inside and out) woman and for being blessed with becoming the mother of the most incredible little girl I know!

Becoming a mom is the best thing I have ever done. Raising my daughter is the most important “job” I will ever hold. When times are difficult, it is what gives me the strength to push through. When times are good, it is what gives me the most joy. I like to think I am teaching my daughter the things she needs to know to help her become a loving and happy person and am helping her discover her best self. But honestly, she teaches me just as much as I teach her about true happiness and being your best self. If I could have 5 more just like her, I would do it!

I hope all of you moms out there had a wonderful day too and that you know just how lucky you are! Happy Mother’s Day to all of you;)
