|On a Mother’s Day hike at Granny Jean’s country house. A gorgeous day with my mom Susan and my little walking-stick-wielders, who are now pretty grown-up looking compared to this 2010 pic!|
You are an amazing mother.
Happy Mother’s Day to YOU. May you get to revel in your awesomeness ALL WEEKEND LONG. If there isn’t someone clamoring all over the place to tell you how awesome you are, please let me be the one. Because you are. You are awesome and I think you deserve a day to really do what you want, if not more than a day... Toast yourself with a glass of Champagne. Take an embarrassingly long nap. Organize your craft room or office or closet with the radio blasting. Read a trashy tabloid magazine cover to cover in the bathtub. Go running or swimming or walking or hiking. Buy yourself a cute bra and matching undies just because it’s fun to know you’re wearing them even if no one else does. Take yourself to the fanciest place in town for the most decadent dessert, and don’t even share it! Plant flowers or a tree that remind you of your own mother.
Go do your thing, girl! It’s YOUR DAY.
If you’d like, leave a comment here telling me what you would really like to do for Mother’s Day, or what you’re going to be doing for Mother’s Day, and I’ll pick THREE people to win our May Digital Stamp Set, which will be revealed on Friday, May 15th! Comments will be accepted until Thursday, May 14 at 11pm CDT. Yes, even after Mother’s Day, you can still tell me what you wish you would have gotten to do on Mother’s Day - or the marvelous things you got to do. Tee-hee!
You don’t have to be a mother of children to enter, because we all know that we are all earth mothers, mothers to pets, mothers to our officemates, mothers to our friends who need to be kept in line ... you get the picture.
So, what do you want to do on Mother’s Day?
** Addendum ** I want to tuck in here that I can’t wait to share the day with my Lulu + Finn, and my beloved mom. We’ll also get to watch Lulu kick out the jams on the soccer field and there will be much love and gratitude in the air! I reread my post and I sure don’t mean to come off as a meanie who doesn’t cherish being a mom, or having awesome ladies in my life. :) xoxoxo ~m
P.S. Wishing a wonderful day, month, and year to my angel mother. I love you always and forever, Mama Susan!
