Day 173 of 365: Mothering Sunday
Today is Mother's Day in England. I haven't figured out why there is a different date celebrated in the US, but I know that Father's Day is the same in both countries...so I'm left baffled. Here's a photo of one of the bouquets we picked up for Matt's mom. I had a quick lesson today in "defensive flower selection" at Morrison's. As soon as we would step back to examine one bouquet, a flock of procrastinating, posy-picking vultures descended upon Matt and me.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
