Having lost my dad last year makes me ever more thankful to have been able to spend Mother's Day with my mom. Chris and Natalie invited us to a lovely lunch at Arcola Country Club. The day was absolutely spectacular and the views from the club were stunning - the New York City skyline in one direction and the beautiful rolling hills of New Jersey in the other (and yes, there are beautiful rolling hills in NJ). Having Patrick home from Notre Dame this week was icing on the cake.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
