Happy Day After Mother's Day! I hope your Sunday was full of happy children, thoughtful partners and a few minutes of alone time. Don't y'all think that particular holiday should be a week long? Cause I do. I also think I should probably not use "y'all" like I'm from the South, because I'm from Minnesota, and we say things like, "yah, suuuure, ya betchya." I'm finishing off my Mother's Day as I type this, eating stove-popped popcorn and watching Guardians of the Galaxy with my kids who are snuggled up on the pull-out couch (and it's driving my son crazy that I have no idea what's happening in the movie). I had a magical day that began with Carson letting me sleep in (until 7:30, my body is incapable of anything past that) and then walking downstairs to freshly delivered bagels and homemade cards and art projects from my kids. What more could a mom want? Other than a week-long all-expenses paid trip to Mexico with her friends.
Kidding (sort of) aside, it was a truly great weekend. The kind that makes your heart feel full. We had Flag Football Friday followed by a sushi dinner and a mother-son karate class on Saturday that I'm STILL sore from, followed by a lot of recipe testing at home. In the middle of all the cooking, I tried out a new cocktail that will surely become a staple this summer. Freshly squeezed grapefruit, earthy rosemary and a hint of homemade simple syrup made this beverage more than delightful!
Y'all should try it out. Ya betchya.
