mother’s day

My family met at The Italian Oven Restaurant on Thursday to celebrate Mother’s Day. I was looking forward to trying their wood-fired pizza, but their oven was broken, so I got a stromboli instead. It was good, but I definitely want to try their pizza sometime. Anyway, it was nice getting together to celebrate the day.

Jake was supposed to come in next weekend because there’s a work thing he has to do. But he told me last week that he was coming in this weekend (and for two weeks instead of one)! That was the best Mother’s Day gift I could have received. I haven’t seen him since Christmas and have been looking forward to his visit. And, as a bonus, he made brunch for us this morning!
