Yesterday was low key but lovely. N. surprised me with a fancy bread machine for a combination Mother's Day/anniversary gift. I'm really excited to use it. It makes a 2 lb. horizontal loaf and comes with recipes for all sorts of bread. I'm particularly intrigued by the recipe for the cheese and onion bread--yum!
In the evening we went up to N.'s parents' house for dinner. Holidays with N.'s parents are getting a little poignant because in June they are moving to Korea for three years to perform full-time service for our church. So it was N.'s mother's first Mother's Day with E. but also her last one with him until at least 2012!
I wasn't able to see my mom yesterday since she lives out of state, but I wanted to thank her for everything she's done for me. I know it's trite, but becoming a parent does give you more appreciation for everything your own parents did for you.
Hooray for mothers, grandmothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, and friends!
