It is that time again! The moment when we worship our mother’s and also rush around the weeks following up to Mother’s Day trying to find the perfect gift. Personally, this day is a mix of emotional and bittersweet. My mother passed away four years ago. However, instead of wallowing, I have decided to celebrate this day on a lighter note. Though I may not have my own mom here with me, I have several mamas that deserve to be celebrated and recognized. My sister, my mother-in-law, sisters-in-law and of course my childhood best friend being the official mama to be.
Depending on how extravagant you get with your Mother’s Day gifting it can get pretty expensive. This is not to say that your mother isn’t worth it! Sometimes it’s just nice to have quality over quantity. Remember when you were little and you would come home with a paper heart or a stick figure drawing to give you mom? Well let’s get back to our roots and give the time and energy she deserves with these thoughtful gifts you can make yourself that actually don’t suck!
