Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers in my life and the blogosphere! I spent my Mother’s Day relaxing at home with our boys and puppies. Hubby made me a wonderful breakfast of crepes, an omelette and some bacon. It was sinfully delicious! The crepes were spectacular with cloud berry jam, whipped cream and fresh berries. On the second crepe, I had blueberry jam that we bought in Norway on it and it was delicious. I’m not quite sure what we’re going to do when we’re finally out of Norwegian cloudberry and blueberry jelly. I guess we’ll just have to go back and buy more!
We spent Saturday night at the amphitheater in West Palm for the Alan Jackson show. To be clear, I’ve never been a country music fan. In fact, I wasn’t originally planning to go with Goalielocks and the Hubby to the concert. At least, not until I got the guilt trip from Goalielocks, who reminded me that I had no problem going to the Foo Fighters with Jake. I, of course, reminded him that I love the Foo Fighters…. Nonetheless, I accompanied them to the concert last night.
Fortunately, the weather held out. I purchased seats under the roof of the amphitheater just in case the meteorologists happened to be right. They weren’t, but the assigned seats were nice. We had a great view of the show and weren’t fighting the crowds on the lawns. As for the show itself, both LeeAnn Womack and Alan Jackson didn’t disappoint. I’ve heard many of the Alan Jackson songs enough to know the words. Moreover, they bring back fond memories of my mother-in-law, who enjoyed his music.
While I don’t enjoy their music, I would have had to be deaf to not hear how talented they are. LeeAnn Womack has some lungs! Surprisingly, that’s not even the Tito’s lemonade talking. They were legit. I’m not converting to country, but enjoyed spending the evening with two of my guys.
We faced time my mom and grandma today to wish them a very, happy Mother’s Day. It would have been nice to be up in Minnesota with all of them. After a late night last night, we decided not to do to brunch on the water. This decision was reinforced by the weather outside, which brought us heavy rains all day. Apparently, there’s a low pressure system of the southwest coast of Florida that may develop into a tropical system. Oh joy!
It’s time to head off to bed and recharge the batteries before starting another crazy week. To all the mother’s out there, I hope you had a wonderful day. To the beautiful mother’s in our lives, who have felt the excruciating pain of losing a child, today we send you our love and strength. Lastly, for those whose mother’s have passed, today we send love your way.
