I love my friends.
And the next day was Mother's Day! My mom was in VA with my dad and Becky for the weekend, and had said they wouldn't be back until late Sunday evening. She assured me that we had already celebrated her birthday for a huge party recently and that she wanted nothing else. I couldn't let that slide, so I dropped by their house and set up a vase of tulips for her, a card, and little ice cream/ cookie dough scoop (since she makes those M&M chocolate chip cookies so often!). I felt better about not getting to see her on Mother's Day despite living within 15 minutes of her!
And then I headed over to see Jess, Jason, and new baby Layla! Jess was wonderful enough to entrust me with taking her newborn pictures, and I was so excited to meet everyone, as well as capture her this small and adorable.
Here are a few glimpses into the amazingness to come. Don't worry, I'll give you the full story soon!
strawberry mascarpone (which freeze beautifully) and the new browned butter chocolate chip cookies from Joy. I promise to post those soon, they are killer amazing! We took a quick walk around the neighborhood after dinner, and then Becky and I headed home.
It was a wonderful weekend filled with friends, and loving families :-)
