It's that time of year again when we are inevitably asked "What do you want for Mother's Day?" and this year it will look a bit different for us all. Here is what each of us our asking for and why.
"HOME COOKED BRUNCH"
Brigette + Dylan Winter 2019
As Dylan gets older, I appreciate our downtime together (now, more than ever). I’m lucky enough to have a husband who loves to cook … so a relaxing brunch and meaningful family time would be my biggest Mother’s Day request. But, a candle or pair of shoes are also acceptable options. ;)
Meghann, Evan, Nate, + Brynn 2019
I know that sounds crazy when we’ve been stuck in the house for the last 45+ days. However I would really love some down time without home school, chores, and all of the other things going on. To just hang out and have some laughs. So a day where all of the dishes, laundry, meals, and diapers changes are handled so I can actually be in the moment with my family would be AMAZING!
Jo, Zoe + Claire April 2020
For the past two years Jeff makes a video of Zoe being sweet saying “Happy Mother’s Day” and it’s what I look most forward to every year.
This year I am going to give both my girls a huge hug and hop in the car to take a drive by myself. I'll listen to music to check out a local plant shop. It will be nice to wander around by myself for a bit and find a new plant. I am quickly becoming a plant lady in quarantine!
"SIMPLE + AFFORDABLE"
Jac, Kevin + Marlowe August 2019
Last mother's day I asked for a locket. Whitney Port posted about it, I was influenced and immediately sent it to Kevin to purchase. He questioned whether or not I would where it because I rarely wear jewelry. I was certain I would have it on all the time. Fast forward twelve months and I think I've worn in three times. So this year I have asked for a hug, kiss and hand made card. Simple, easy and affordable.
I have a huge box of cards and invites that I've kept since I was a kid. Every now and then when I am supposed to be cleaning or packing or doing dishes, I find myself pulling it out and flipping through them. I love reading notes my parents sent me while at camp or birthday cards from my late Grandparents. It gives me great joy to reminisce and therefore I will never Marie Kondo them.
We hope that you enjoy this day and find a way to celebrate with family or take a moment for yourself to remember what a hero and goddess you are every day - not just on Mother's Day.
