Always you, Mama...

Thank you's mean a lot, especially when they come from your little ones when the only words they know are "up" and "Mama." This Sunday, all across America - Mama's are getting a little extra love for all that they do, the hugs get a little bigger to say thank you. 

Personally, this day is so incredibly special for me and has been far before I become a Mama myself. This Sunday, I'm going to be celebrating not just those wonderful Mom's I know and love (like my own Mom and MIL), but women all around the world on the quest to be Mama's too. This year has been been filled with great love & lost for those around me on their journey to pregnancy and on Sunday, it will be especially hard for them to cope with the hardships they've had to face. Surrounding Mama's, Mama-to-be's, and Mama's in waiting (as I like to call them) with courage, strength, and love is so incredibly important. So if you know someone struggling to get pregnant or someone that needs a little extra support - make sure you remember them this weekend too. Let's spread the love & hugs far and wide. 

And how do we show people we love them? With endless celebrations and thank you's! Being on a tight budget doesn't mean you can't show your Mama's you love them - there are plenty of ways to say thank you without having to drain your bank account. 

Personally, Tot & the Mr. are taking me out to my favorite restaurant to be spoiled and making me extra special cards for Mother's Day. Instead of a gift, I'm just thankful for time alone with my favorites giggling and eating delicious avocado toast (a favorite of Tot & me).
