I am still recovering from a busy Mother’s Day weekend. It’s an honor to be part of the mom’s club with amazing woman like my mom, grandmother, aunts, and friends. I’m still trying to figure out how to celebrate this holiday being a mom and being the one to make sure all of the moms in my family that came before me have a good day. I loved seeing all of the picture perfect Mother’s Day celebrations on social media. Some of my Mother’s Day was picture perfect. But some of my Mother’s Day wasn’t. I got upset with my mother on both days of Mother’s Day weekend, fought with my brother, and spent one afternoon in my room so I could be alone. I ended Mother’s Day weekend annoyed with my mom and disappointed in myself. I made up with my mom a couple of days later and realize I love my not-perfect Mother’s Day. My life isn’t perfect, I’m not perfect, and I don’t have perfect Mother’s Day. I am grateful my family will always come together for Mother’s Day. I am so thankful and feel so blessed I can celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom. She always makes sure we have a home-cooked meal, always there to watch my daughters, and is always honest in her opinion (both good and bad). Without her, I could not be the person or mom I am today.
Here are pictures from my perfect not-perfect Mother’s Day.
We took my mom and grandmother to all-you-can-eat hot pot and Korean BBQ. It was my grandmother’s first time eating hot pot and she loved it!

Cheers to a not-perfect Mother’s Day,
