We decided to have a low-key Mother’s Day this year. Life has been so hectic and we just wanted a calm day. Gabe decided that he would make me a special breakfast. He planned it for weeks. Watched youtube videos in order to get it just right.
It was the best breakfast ever. He made blueberry muffins from scratch that were to die for. I ate three! He made scrambled eggs and bacon. Coffee and cream was on a special serving tray. And the piece de resistance….a beautiful fruit tray complete with an apple swan. Isn’t he the cutest? It was a very special treat!
What did you do for Mother’s Day?
