It’s hard to believe that Mother’s Day weekend is coming up next weekend! While I am very much looking forward to spending some quality family time with my crew, I know my heart will ache just a bit as this is my first Mother’s Day without my mom.
I’m not sure if I did this subconsciously or not, but we’ll actually be doing the same thing for Mother’s Day this year as we did last year with my mom – going to Paradise Springs Winery with my friend Liz and her family. (Don’t worry – I’m going for the atmosphere, wine and cheese, and company!) If it works, I’ll also try to squeeze in a prenatal massage this weekend.
While I absolutely prefer experiences for gifts rather than material items (usually -ha!) here are some other things I wouldn’t mind receiving from my daughter and Violet. (Hint hint Tommy. :-))
- I do love a good blowout.
- Ya’ll know I’m a sucker and lover of fresh flowers.
- I think these loafer mules are adorable.
- This dress would be cute to wear to my baby shower.
For all you mamas and/or mamas-to-be – what are you hoping for this Mother’s Day, besides spending quality time with the gals in your life that you love?
