Sunday was definitely one of the best Mothers Days I have had in a very long time. Looking back I realized it had been 25 years since I had spent Mothers Day with my oldest daughter Cary and 16 years since I had spent it with my other daughter Katy. 

Yes, there were always gifts or flowers along with phone calls and later Facetime, but we were never in the same place on that special day. 

This year that all changed and I have never been happier. 

Cary was treated to a delicious breakfast by her husband and children, so we went out late in the morning for brunch. It was just me and my girls, and along with amazing gluten free food, mine was eggs benedict, we had a chance to just sit and talk.

We ate at a restaurant and bakery in their neighborhood that is strictly gluten free. I love it there. It is described as rustic and chic and as we are all three gluten free it is a perfect place for us. It's called Mediterranea and if you are ever in Grant Park and love amazing gluten free, healthy food you should definitely try it.

After brunch we went back to Cary's home to meet up with her husband and Tessa. They have season tickets to the Atlanta United soccer team games and there was a game that afternoon. Jack Henry can't maneuver all of the steps at the stadium and I'm not sure how much Sidney likes going to the games so they nicely gave up their tickets to Katy and I. 

I loved it. Along with over 68,000 other fans, and yes I am definitely a fan now, I spent the afternoon cheering for our team to win, and they didn't let us down. 

When we left the stadium it had started to rain, but I wasn't about to let that spoil the day. As we hurried back to the car that is when it happened. As I reached over to help Tessa put up her umbrella, I took a step and there was a step down off of a curb that I didn't see. I tried to catch myself, but my momentum was too great and I sprawled out on the pavement. 

Ugh, all I could think of was please don't let me have broken something. A very nice man who was behind me helped me up and I appeared to be okay. I didn't feel like too much of a klutz when another  woman who was close behind me did the same thing. She was lucky not to go all the way down though. 

I feel really lucky that I didn't break something. I'm sore and have a few bruises along with a bit of a goose egg on my forehead (although I didn't even realize I had hit my head), but I am really counting my blessings. 

It really was the best of days, even with an oops.

  1. Glad to hear you had a great Mother's Day AND that you were not seriously hurt!

  2. What an ending to your lovely Mother's Day. I'm so glad you weren't seriously hurt.

  3. Glad to hear you did not break anything with that fall. So happy the day was good and you enjoyed being with your girls.
    Just think you will now always be together to celebrate the beautiful and sweet mom you are.
    Have a great rest of the week and good weekend.

  4. Looks like you had great time this Mother's Day...

  5. Wonderful to be with your children on Mom's Day! Sorry about the oops and glad you weren't serious hurt or broken. I eat totally gluten free and wish I could find a gluten free restaruant. I'm lucky if a place even has gluten free bread. Where I live, very few do so I'm resigned to having my "sandwich" sans the bread. And of course, there are most sauces I can't eat either. How wonderful to find a totally GF restaurant! And how neat to know you'll be able to spend every Mother's Day with your girls! Marilyn
