{My First Mother's Day + A Free Print}

This year I am a mother. Me, a mother. It's still very surreal to say that. The idea of it resonates so deeply throughout my entire being, though. I wholeheartedly believe that I was meant to be a mother. He knew it would change me, and only for the better. Being a mother challenges me. It pushes me. It humbles me. It teaches me. It grounds me. It strengthens me. It fulfills me.
I've only been at it for a few months, but I can assure you that I will never be the same as I was before. Life with Henry has renewed me spiritually and mentally. Becoming a mother has changed the way I view the world and the way I think on a daily basis. Purpose and motivation consume me and push me to be the best woman that I can for my son and my (possible) future children. 
I am so incredibly thankful for the chance to be a momma. I do not take for granted the love and care that I am able to give. I look at Henry and I see me. I see my husband. He is us, he is ours. I am certain that nothing will ever compare to my role as a mother.
Those tiny arms wrapped around me tightly have changed everything for the rest of time.  He is my greatest creation.
Never have I seen someone so beautiful. Those big green eyes with hints of brown sprinkled throughout. Those full, pouty lips. Those tiny fingers that you examine ever so carefully when the sun hits them. That perfect button nose. Everything about you is us and I find that to be a true miracle, a beautiful blessing.
Forever my world. 
Momma loves you, Henry Harper.
To celebrate my first Mother's Day, Maddie and I collaborated on a few prints for you guys to download and print. Print them for yourself, frame one for your mother or give one to a mother you know and appreciate.

 A special thank you Grace & Madd Paperie for these beautiful prints!
An early Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there for everything they do, especially mine, for it is you that taught me everything I know about being a mother.
