Another Mother's Day is in the books, and once again I am reminded how lucky I am. I have two beautiful daughters, and although I may want for more at times, I really can't ask for much more.
Mother's Day weekend started out with hot yoga with my girls at Drishti Power Yoga in Sea Girt. It was our first time at the studio, and we couldn't have been happier with the class. It was a family yoga class where the focus was on the moms, of course. I loved how the instructor Maura emphasized the importance of kindness to everyone not just our mothers. At the end of the class, the moms completely relaxed during the cool down with cucumbers on our eyes and hand massages performed by our children. It was really very lovely, and I can't wait to check the studio out on my own in the upcoming weeks.
The three of us worked up quite an appetite during our class so we decided on a light lunch afterwards. We headed down the street to Turning Point where we munched on Caesar salad wraps, black bean soup, and Caprese sandwiches.
We spent the rest of the day totally chilling at home. I started reading The Santangelos by Jackie Collins, and just a few pages in, I am hooked. I received an advanced copy of the book for an event that I am attending next month where we will have a book discussion with the fabulous author herself!!! You can pre-order the book via the link above, if you are interested.
On Sunday, I enjoyed a relaxing morning. The girls slept in, and I made my morning cup of tea and headed out to the deck while the Hubs ran errands for me. He did the grocery shopping and picked up a few hanging baskets for the porch and deck. It was SOOOO nice to enjoy some quiet time by myself.
Later in the morning, the girls and I leisurely made our way to Starbucks where we sat outside for almost 2 hours after we ordered our drinks. A very sweet man offered to take our picture. I gladly accepted, and as soon as I handed him my phone, Harper copped an attitude and refused to get in the picture.
Great spot for people watching!
Once we got home, we settled down to dinner and afterwards, we took a walk. I loved not having concrete plans so that we could take it easy and play it by ear. It was definitely a fabulous Mother's Day. Hope you had a great one too! xx
