Celebration weekend! (& Friday Links)

It’s a very special weekend—for so many reasons! Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and we are looking forward to celebrating our own mothers! Of course I also especially look forward to getting a little bit of celebration myself—and will be spending the day with the three loves who were involved in that for me. This Mother’s Day also happens to be our wedding anniversary (12 years), but we got a chance to celebrate that a bit early, last weekend. It is also my dad’s birthday on Saturday, and we’re all going out for tacos! And then, somewhere in there, we’re also hosting Hudson’s little league team and their families for a pool party! There’s a lot going on—but all good things.

What are your plans for the weekend? If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day, what will that hopefully look like?

Hope everyone has a happy weekend! If you’re in the mood, some links of note…

The texts that one mother received during the most recent school shooting.

I have the biggest lump in my throat thinking that I can repeat, verbatim, one of the lines from last Friday’s link list:

This brave student sacrificed his life to save others during the shooting. When do the rest of us take action!?”

I only had to swap out the link. It’s so horrifying.
