This year I had my first Mother’s Day! It was a beautiful day because I chose that day to have Jamie baptized! All of our family was there (almost). Mom and Dad Tow came from Illinois along with Matt’s sister, Amy. My sister and brother-in-law came up from Miami. We had other family members come visit from Orlando and Valrico, too….even friends of the family from California made it!
The weather was perfect and so was everything else. Since I’m a little crazy, I picked a pink and yellow theme (I know, you’d think I planned a wedding…) and made desserts and favors to match….
I filled the yellow cupcakes with key lime curd and the pink ones with strawberry rhubarb.
Jamie was as pretty as a bride…
Jamie’s godparents are her Uncle Mike and Tia (Aunt Elaine).
It was such a special day to have all of our family together and share in our little miracle. I feel so blessed to be a mother. Having Jamie has been the greatest gift to me and to our family. My life has never been better and I am so thankful for it and for Jamie’s.
