Happy Mother's Day! Whether you are still chasing little ones or adjusting to an empty nest, I hope you are getting loved on today. I want to take the opportunity to honor my dear mother...
Mom was only nineteen when I was born. Here we are at one of my favorite places as a little girl, a small amusement park called Peppermint Park.
Mom is creative, artistic and resourceful. I have early memories of her decorating our home and I'm sure my passion for my home is inherited from her. Birthday parties for me and my two brothers were elaborate affairs with color coordinated themes and homemade cakes. Over the years, she has made countless birthday cakes for the grandkids--everything from a watermelon cake for her oldest grandchild, to a garbage truck for her youngest!
Last weekend, Mom came for a visit. We ate out, saw a movie and went to a lavender festival. Before she went home, I treated her to an early Mother's Day breakfast at one of our favorite restaurants. Even though we aren't together today, I'm sending lots of love her way. Here's to you, Mom!
What's your favorite way to celebrate Mother's Day?
