I wanted to share something special this weekend in honor of Mother's Day. Being a mom is one of this most important things in my life and Mother's Day, to me, is way more special and important than even my birthday.

I made this video to signify all the things that motherhood means to me. I cannot watch it without crying. In fact, I think I'll consider it one of my 30 Lists because it certainly contains more than 30 adjectives to describe motherhood in my life.

Make sure to turn up your volume a bit so you can hear the songs. I hope you enjoy it!

Oh wow! That was so beautiful - you've captured every aspect of motherhood so perfectly. I'd love to do something similar but I fear I'd be a big teary mess from the beginning:)
