On Sunday, after a good sleep in and a latte in bed, and a few beautifully drawn homemade cards, my family took me to the nursery to go plant shopping. It’s our Mother’s Day tradition and I love it. We went to a place called Bates, on the other side of Nashville, out in the country that my friend recommended. I picked out a few new green friends and then we headed to The Pharmacy for burgers, tots, milk shakes for the kids and ice-cold beer for Mom. It was a mellow day, just the way I like it. I hope that you all had a lovely Mother’s Day, being celebrated or celebrating a mother dear to you.

P.S. How gorgeous is that first photo of Birdie that my husband took?! I might have it framed.

    Looks like a lovely day! I’m always a little sad on mother’s day, having no mom anymore. But on the other hand, i am grateful for the beautiful memories i dó have. I am happy to see your family is making it count!


    Love it. Happy Mother’s Day to you, beautiful James.

    Every time I see your kids I’m always like: WOAH, those are some beautiful kids. They’re seriously beautiful, you guys make a nice mix! I also had a relaxing mother’s day and I’m super happy about it. Plant shopping would have been nice but we opted for planting our garden. :)
