The makings of an amazing first Mother’s Day

Time has been moving at a faster pace than ever before, and I feel like I just had my baby, but yet, here we are in mid-May…and I just experienced my first Mother’s Day!

It was an amazing day. Becoming Harrison’s mama is the best thing I’ve done.

For those who know me, I have very strong preferences of what I want to do, and yet, I am as indecisive as they come. This often is a recipe for disaster. But yesterday, for whatever reason, things fell into place.

I grew up in Manhattan and going back there always feels like going home (even though my parents have moved away). We had an early lunch. We showed Harrison some important spots, like where I grew up; where we had our first kiss; where we got engaged. 

I got a cookie at Levain bakery for the first time in years!

We sat outside for a nice meal. It was raining, but we managed to stay relatively dry and cozy!

My favorite tomato soup!

Harrison took in the sights of the big city! This was his first time there!

Becoming a mother has been the best, but also, most profound change for me. I say this all the time, but you’re still you, and yet you also become another person. So having a mother’s day where I brought my new life into my old life was really special.
