But this morning, sitting in the kitchen sipping my tea, I noticed the early light was quite lovely. It softly illuminated the flowers in our backyard. Such a perfect photo op, I hemmed and hawed about taking the time to capture a few images. Then I thought to myself "Hey, it's Mother's Day. I can do whatever I want!" and grabbed my camera.

During the past week, our backyard has burst into color. Several hues of iris have unfurled their gorgeous petals.

Tiny pink flowers popped open their delicate blossoms.
And golden yellow lilies rose from the waters of our koi pond.

Mother's Day to me is taking the time to do the things you love. Capturing images of these dazzling flowers always makes me smile.
|Happiness is.....having your kids come home!|
Mother's Day means also spending time with the ones you love. Nothing makes me happier than having my kids come home to visit. It was the best part of my Mother's Day 2015.
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there. And special wishes to my own mother, battling an unexpected winter storm back in South Dakota. Stay warm, Mom!
