To my sweet girl,
My first Mother’s Day was fabulous and it was all because of you, because I’m your mommy. It’s so hard to believe that not so long ago I thought you would never be mine, I thought I’d never have the honor of being a mama. And now I get to be yours. How wonderful. You’re wonderful.
You were such a good girl during brunch at Sassi. Everyone thought you were so adorable and you lapped up the attention just like you lapped up the gelato I gave you. That was yummy wasn’t it? Everything we ate was yummy.
Sassi is very special because it’s where your daddy and I got married. It was very nice to spend my first Mother’s Day there and daddy and I decided it will be our family tradition to celebrate there every year. I really wanted to get a family picture of the three of us on the altar where your daddy and I said our vows, but you’re a stinker and you wouldn’t cooperate and it was too darn hot.
I love you baby girl, you are every wish I ever made come true. Thank you for giving me reason to celebrate Mother’s Day and every day since the day I found out you were on your way. I hope I am the mommy you deserve because you most certainly are perfection and more than I could have ever hoped for; you are my precious dream come to life.
The food at Sassi’s Mother’s Day brunch is amazing. Arugula salad with fire-roasted pineapple, goat cheese and Marcona almonds, basil crusted halibut, gemmelli Bolognese, porcini-rubbed roasted beef loin, and the best bread EVER!
