Jewel’s First Mother’s Day Was ‘Magical’

05/17/2012 at 06:00 PM ET

Forget the fancy brunch and the elaborate gifts. For Jewel, it was all about bare feet and playing in the grass when the singer celebrated her first Mother’s Day.

“It was magical,” she tells PEOPLE of the day, which she spent at home with son Kase Townes, 10 months and her husband, professional bull rider Ty Murray at their 2,200-acre ranch in Texas. “I spent the day relaxing with my two favorite men, Ty and Kase. We hung out at the ranch and enjoyed being outside with our animals and nature.”

It was a moment of well-deserved bliss for the busy mom, who is the new national spokesperson for the first annual national Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day on October 17, 2012. The singer, who has written a song to recognize breast reconstruction patients, will work towards increasing awareness for reconstructive surgery options after mastectomy.

Jewel, 37, will also begin filming a Lifetime movie this month in which she portrays country legend June Carter Cash.

This is such a sweet and happy moment filled with Jewel’s smile and her mini me! Ty is such a great photographer and Kase is going to lovingly and laughingly demand to know what happen with my clothes! L O L. We as parents always take a few of this type fun!

Love her down-to-earth attitude–so refreshing! Can’t wait to see her as June Carter Cash…perfect casting! Sorry, Reese.

What a chunk!! He sure is an extremely happy and cute baby though. And I love his name!

What a cute picture! And at the risk of sounding odd, Jewel looks more like Kase’s sister to me in this picture than his mother. Seriously, I can’t believe she’s nearly 40 (she’s 38, if memory serves)! 🙂

Adorable! I have to disagree with Joyful, though; I think Kase is TY’S Mini Me!

I love this “celebrity” pic. No lights, no camera… just a real moment between mother and baby, and it couldn’t be more beautiful.

She is such a cool, down-to-earth person and knows that the most important things in life aren’t things… It’s her family! Happy Mother’s Day, Jewel! You are such a beautiful soul! 🙂
