On to lunch…
Today’s meal included tuna salad made with one can of tuna, light Miracle Whip, mustard, edamame and sweet corn.
Along with the fishy salad, I also enjoyed a freshly sliced green pepper and a cup of chocolate yogurt mousse.
It was tasty!
Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom Gifts
Clearly I am dying to talk about our wedding, but since I won’t have any of the professional pictures from our wedding day for several weeks, I’m trying to hold back.
I figured that in the meantime I can post about the things that will not be included in the wedding day pictures, like our bridal party gifts, the rehearsal dinner and the post-wedding brunch at my parents’ house.
To kick things off, let’s cover the gifts we gave to our mothers.
Ryan and I had a hard time brainstorming what to give to our mothers on our wedding day. We wanted something touching and personal that truly signified the strong relationship we both share with our moms.
I then saw a handkerchief that was embroidered with the most beautiful message.
I knew it would be perfect for my mom.
I also wanted to show Ryan’s mom just how much she means to me and how much I truly appreciate all of the love she poured into raising the man of my dreams, so I gave her a similar handkerchief with this message before our ceremony.
My dad also received a handkerchief from me. The message on his gave me the chills!
(You may recognize my nickname on that one! 🙂 )
In addition to the handkerchiefs, Ryan and I gave our mothers Willow Tree figurines. My mother received one of a mother with her daughter, while Ryan’s mom received one of a mother with her son.
Ryan and I tried very hard to make our gifts personal, thoughtful and fitting for such an amazing occasion in our lives. I hope our gifts helped signify just how much our mothers mean to us.
