Hey hey! I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful week! There are so many women who have impacted my life and I love dearly. My mom, who I simply could not live without. My grandma, whose kindness, cooking, and company makes life so much better. My mother-in-law who raised Alex to be such an incredible man. And my grandma in heaven who could light up a room with her smile and laugh and taught me the value of a good, home cooked meal. Owen and Della are blessed to have three of the world’s most awesome aunties, too! Mother’s Day is May 14th this year and is a great opportunity to honor all the incredible women in our lives, past and present.
I admit that as a mother myself, I don’t particularly care for Mother’s Day. I just want the day to be like any other, minus the part where Alex works a 13 hour day and isn’t home before bedtime. I prefer to think of the day as a way to thank and show my appreciation to the women who have been my role models and support system in my own motherhood journey. Adulting is hard and I couldn’t do what I do every day without those who taught me how to handle it. Okay, so maybe I’d like to smile a lot and have a glass of wine with lunch, too.
If you’re shopping for this upcoming day, here are a few ideas! Or just hand your phone over to your husband, dad, whoever… 😉
