I love Mother’s Day

and one of the many reasons why

is that it’s the one day a year

that you can get everyone within arm’s reach together

for a Mother’s Day picture.

Everyone looking at the camera and not looking pained is optional.



  1. What a beautiful family you have. Happy Mother’s Day!

  2. What a beautiful family you are:) Your Mothering inspires me Stef!

    Hi Stefanie:

    I just loved seeing the photos of your beautiful kiddos. Made my heart smile. We have friends in China right now bringing home their little sweetie pie, and the photos on their blog of Shamien Island made me think of you and the special time we had to connect there.

    Thanks for your encouragement and advice!
