Happy Mother's Day!

Happy, happy Mother's Day from our crazy crew to yours. May you celebrate in all the ways that make you most happy.

A MONSTER-SIZED Happy Mother's Day to my own mom, who has been there through it all and is the best grandma to these buddies!

Oh, there are more moms in my life that I can't leave out - Happy Mother's day Grandma Rosie (great-grandma to the boys!), my mother-in-law Heidi (grandma BB!), sister-in-law Beth (Aunt Beth) and sister-in-law Katja (Tante Katja). These moms are worthy of the most splendid celebration today.

There's more! A Happy Mother's Day to all of my mom friends. The ones in San Francisco who muddled through the early stages of motherhood with me (blood, sweat, tears, milk, barf and poop included), the ones here in Minneapolis who love a good Friday happy hour while the kids watch movies, and to the ones around the world who I don't get to see often enough but connect with every day online.

I hope you have a chance to wish the special moms in your life a Happy Mother's Day. And if you're a mom, I hope you take a minute to celebrate all it is that you do EVERY DAY. Give yourself a high five for the big things and the little things that you do for your family - there are far too many things to list here, but you know what I'm talking about.

The two guys in the photo above make my heart flutter each and every day with love (and potentially anxiety when I realize the enormity of the task of "mothering.") I am so lucky they call me Mommy.

Happy Mother's Day.
