I'm talking about mother's day!
This post is really for all you partners, sons and daughters out there. And please don't you dare say "but every day is mother's day" because we all know that's a bunch of BS.
I'm writing this early so that there are no excuses for being late or last minute when it comes to showering your mom with the boat load of affection and thoughtfulness that she deserves. Because don't forget, she's the reason you are here on this earth. #Nobigdeal.
Now there are many options for showing your mom how much you love her. You can go the traditional route of flowers or chocolate, or be creative with photos or homemade gifts. And I'm sure no mom would turn down a spa day... or let's get real, even 3 hours of sitting in a reclining chair in silence would suffice.
But for me, it's all about the card. I love nothing more than a beautiful card with a thoughtful and sincere message. Flowers are a pain in the ass to keep alive, chocolate is bad for my diet, and fancy jewelry doesn't really go with my yoga pants look right now.
