Mother’s Day – Bouquet and Carrot Cake

My Mother’s Day was lovely. But I wouldn’t have any other expectations, I’ve met my son. He and I had a quiet Friday evening and Saturday until evening together. With a quick run out to catch the ice cream man on Saturday we were waved down by UPS who had two boxes for us. One filled with girly goodies I had decided to treat myself to, and another with flowers. I was pretty excited!

The flowers were all buds that didn’t open up for about 5 days (interesting and different, the package didn’t expect this, either- claimed they would open within 24 hours).

Every day is Mother’s Day to me. I look forward to the day each year, but I don’t need it. My son makes me feel incredibly loved. He is such a blessing, and I use Mother’s Day as an excuse to really revel in how lucky I am. It’s a good thing every day isn’t literally Mother’s Day, because this year I met the undisputed best piece of carrot cake I have ever had. And I love carrot cake. Years ago, before Angel came along, Kevin and I had tried to have a late dinner at Spencer’s but were turned away (you had to be a member due to liquor laws, I believe).  This time, however, we were granted entry and finished a very filling lunch with a slice of cake that we barely finished three ways. Whew. I’ve already decided where I will be having my birthday cake this year!

About EchoStenger.com

EchoStenger.com began in early 2013 as a side project of Echoia.com. Namely, Echoia Photography. Wanting to expand to include more varied content, it seemed only appropriate to change the site's title.

It currently is an outlet for many of my interests and passions. I share my work in and write tutorials for Adobe Illustrator, review products (mostly purchased by me), experiment with my Silhouette Cameo machine (hashtag vector in flesh!), share my day-to-day and still post photographs on a regular basis.

Thank you for visiting and coming along with me as I grow and seek out beauty in everything.

I am a Christian mom, girlfriend, dog-mom, cat-mom and pseudo step-mom. I take up hobbies faster than I can put them back down. I am from Texas, but currently reside in Utah.

I. Love. Air conditioning.

Fiona Apple.

Angel : My seraph son. I’ll likely speak of nothing and no one so much. Born October 2009. He likes the color orange blue and almost anything Marvel.

Veda : Black. Lab-like. Born Summer 2008. A life changer. Full name and title: Princess Darth Veda Jane Sultanfuss Stenger. Usually just Veda/Veda Jane when she’s bad. Also ‘Monster’. In your way? Just say, 'Scoot, Veda.'

Trinity : Rescued from the pound about 9 weeks of age, Summer 2009. I call her ‘Wiggle Bottoms’, 'Dummy' (lovingly, of course) or ‘Little Bit’. Big time cuddler.

Li : Dog cat. Scarier than both the dogs put together.
