Mother's Day 2014 ❤


So not only is this a special post as it is Mother's Day but it is also my 100th published post as a blogger :)

So this took me a while to figure out and I had to double check myself a few times but this is actually my 4th Mother's Day - how crazy is that?! Especially as I have only a 3 year old, my little rock Corey. Honestly, this day is probably one of my favourite day's of the year, celebrating the most amazing possible thing ever and that is becoming a mummy. Looking back, it is quite strange really to see what we have overcome and been through but also wonderful to see what an incredible little human being he is becoming. Not just that but also what sort of lady I have turned into as well!

A normal tradition in my family which we have done since as long as I can remember is a family meal at my mums with all the family, which is lovely as we do for every special occasion and birthday - we certainly love our family time :) Today's meal is gorgeous chilli con carne - most of our favourites, certainly is mine!

I have both my Mum and my Nan, both of whom I am very close with and wouldn't be without really. As always they have done so much for me, even more so now with Corey. We don't always agree on everything but we have learnt over the years that it's okay to have differences. I couldn't think of two people who I could love more than these. Although I still think I have given them the greatest present ever of the first grandchild and great grandchild - don't get much better than that!

Next, is my other nan who unfortunately reached the 2nd anniversary of her death yesterday - a shame she can not be here today with me to celebrate. But someone I will never forget especially on a day like today, it still saddens me that she won't see Corey grow up or be there for my wedding in the future. I remember she always used to have silly big wedding hats, she already had one picked out for mine long ago. Nanny Betty on her 70th Birthday below which must have been 5 or 6 years ago now, if not longer. But I will always have her in my heart no matter what and where ever my life's journey takes me ❤

Looking back I have had some great Mother's Day, on my first I remember Corey being sick all over me first thing in the morning - what a lovely present that was! I wanted to find the perfect picture to share of Corey and I, searched and searched but nothing compared to this picture below that was only taken the other day..

cheeky monkey sleeping in mummy's bed - pretending to be asleep and smiled as he knew I was taking a photo, he even pretends to snoe which is so funny as he is getting so good at it. I love this little man I have created and don't know what I would do without him, my rock, my whole entire world and more ❤

Happy Mother's Day!!

So as much as this is a day for celebrating it is also a day to remember those who can not be around but love as if they were ❤ Hope you all have a wonderful day whatever your plans may be especially for so many of you lovely bloggers who will be celebrating your first :) enjoy it and hope you all get spoilt rotten!

Love, Gemma xo
