Celebrating Mother's day is always a mixed feelings for me because I am so far away from my Mom. Being a Mom myself, I appreciate everything that my Mom did for us growing up and it kills me that I can't even give her a hug during special days like this or on a regular basis for that matter. I just console myself by looking at my children and how blessed I am to have them in my life.
My kids are growing up very fast and sometimes it makes me sad to think that they will have their own lives soon and will be leaving our nest. I am however happy that they are growing up to be good individuals. As parents, we can only hope that they would grow up to be good people. The only thing that we can do is to guide the,m every step of the way.
Anyway, on continuing with my goal to take at least one family picture every month. Here is for the month of May. We had to take three because the dogs keep moving lol.
Our big dog, Bolt, gets it though. Every time I set up the camera, he would sit beside us and get ready. Our Jack Russell Terrier is a different story, he doesn't get it at all lol.
Our children have been serving masses almost every Sundays and we are glad to see how they enjoy doing so.
We went to the cemetery and visited my in-laws after we ate dinner at Theo Yianni's. Then for the last part of the celebration, we played tennis at Starvaggi's Tennis court.
"Make May your Bae" is the theme this month from Beauty Box 5. Aside from the regular 5 products, they added a surprised bonus this month to pamper Moms. The products includes lip conditioner, exfoliating body scrubber, eye and lip pencil, bare necessities highlighting pencil, 24 hour liquid lipstick and an added bonus of Arnic Salve for cracked skin.
My favorite of them all is the mulberry liquid lipstick. I love this because it really stayed on your lips even after you eat. The Arnica Salve is another favorite of mine because I have cracked heels and I am not confident in wearing shoes that shows my heels because of it. Hopefully this would help my feet.
