Mother's Day 2017 and #BeautyBox5 May Edition

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.  

 It  is really nice to pamper yourself ponce in a while.  After all, we Moms, deserve it.
How did you celebrate Mother's Day??
