Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that people either love or hate, for various reasons. I realized that Mother’s Day can be especially hard those those that lost their mom or have a strained relationship with their mom. To those, I hope that you find one seed of joy in the day, instead of stating how much you hate Mother’s Day :-)
I personally LOVE Mother’s Day - It’s like a second birthday in my household! My kids are always making me some random picture or craft and trying to get something from TJ Maxx for me! My hubby will get me some sneakers or something random that I would never buy for myself…it’s usually all rainbows and butterflies! There are many ways to celebrate Mother’s Day, but my way is with my family and my auntie/BFF! We planned a quick trip to Baltimore, MD to enjoy lobster rolls, Chick-fil-A and Marvel movies.
My mom is still here and will remind us (my brother and I) that she doesn’t need or want anything…so I usually send her a Saks gift card to use at some point during the year when she “wants” something. I can’t remember doing anything special or giving her anything when I lived at home, but I know she’s worth everything in the world that she wants or needs!
Mother’s Day this year is a bit more special because it marks 1 year of my website launch! It’s been a wild ride since then, being quarantined for longer than originally anticipated, leaving Corporate America and working in the yoga studio more than usual. I’ve tried to keep the site updated as much as possible, and it’s been a great landing pad for my yoga schedule and events, financial planning sessions, and devotion musings! I love my path as a CPA, Yoga Teacher, wife, and daughter, but my favorite title is mommy/ma/mom/mama/mummy! My two little bunnies make my heart sing in addition to frazzling every single nerve…and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
Happy Mother’s Day!
