Mother’s Day

My Mother’s favorite flower: The Bleeding Heart.

At the annual Mother’s Day Brunch held at the boys Montessori school. Here is Nishad and I, pictured with a buddy of his that we’ve known since Tiger’s days in the toddler community. We’re so glad he continues to be in our boys lives as he moved up to Nishad’s class this year.

My little Tiger– dig in! Strawberries are his FAVE! They are always yummy!

A self portrait of Tiger and I. Gotta love an iphone.

Me and my Honey. It was because of Nishad that I found out how much I more I was capable of loving…
Special thanks to their wonderful school for hosting this event annually. This was my 3rd Mother’s Day Brunch here– it only gets better each year!

May Day!

The May Day parade was something that I’ve wanted to go to since moving to Minnesota. However, it just never panned out– and it was quite a drive. However!! Living only 15 minutes away…this was the year to make our presence a reality! It was FREEZING and we were not exactly dressed for Mother Nature’s cold shoulder (their were actually flakes floating in the air!), but it was one of the most creative and passionate parades I’ve ever seen! One of our faves was a monkey that came up to us. Instead of passing out candy, he was passing out nanners. This is a place that you are free to speak your political mind. In other places, where people would be arrested for Anti-War demonstrations, they’ll be applauded here. Even Minnesota companies– that destroy the environment and planet will be vilified here. There are tons of organizations and non-profits- even the Mayor marches. It’s organized by the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theatre – so of course, it’s visually amazing! Regardless, of what part lines you’re on or what you believe, if you come with an open mind and view it with a child-like perspective…you’ll enjoy! We’ll be sure to be back next May! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate!
