Our second day in Austin was on Mothers's Day. As I said before this is the first Mothers Day I have looked forward to in a really long time. We went to lunch at Bouldin Creek Cafe, which was delicious. While outside waiting to sit down, there was the nicest old man passing out roses to all the women, wishing us a happy mother's day. He didn't work there but was just a passerby being kind. When he gave me that rose, I felt like bursting into tears. I was so overcome with emotion. I am actually going to be a mother. This is something I have prayed for, for so long. I will be forever grateful to that kind little man for such a simple and kind gesture.
After lunch we explored Austin. We walked on the train tracks where I discovered my brother-in-laws fear of trains. We walked up South Congress Ave. which was filled with more food trucks than I have ever seen and of course we shopped in all of Austin's weird little shops. We discovered an Antique Store called Uncommon Objects which was filled to the brim with interesting little treasures. We ended the day with our maternity photo shoot which was amazing. Our location was in a huge park filled with trees and endless fields of wildflowers. It truly was the perfect setting to make any pregnant woman feel at ease and beautiful. My sweet husband went along with everything and was on his best behavior in spite of his aversion to being photographed. Jenni our photographer was so good and I know the pictures are going to be breathtaking. Here is a sneak peek she has posted on her Facebook page. I can't wait to see the rest!
All in all it was the best mothers day I have had in a long time. So grateful for the men I shared it with.
