Happy Friday, everyone - and happy Mother's Day. I hope that all you mothers out there will be treated like queens this weekend. Isn't it wonderful that we can take a moment to celebrate our moms and all the things they've taught us? The long list of lessons would keep us here all day, so here's just a few things I've learned from my lovely mother:
MAKE LIFE SWEET: My mom taught me how to make a pie, but more importantly, she taught me how much better life can be when you focus on the sweetness. Her optimistic attitude and positive outlook always made things brighter, and are qualities that I try to emulate every day.
MAKE LIFE BEAUTIFUL: Every birthday, every holiday and sometimes just the occasional Saturday morning were always something special - the table set with the best china, parties with themes and all sorts of personal touches, handmade decorations for the Christmas tree. Any creativity I possess, I inherited from my mom. Every time I host a dinner party and decide to make the table a little personal and special, I think of her.
MAKE LIFE AN ADVENTURE: My mom wasn't really one for travel. She loved spending summers at the lake house my Dad built and the occasional week at the ocean. But even if we were close to home, it didn't mean that every day wasn't an adventure. Whether picking daisies in the field across the lane or a long walk on the beach searching for shells, my Mom always helped us see the wonder of it all. I've been lucky to take the natural curiosity she instilled around the world with me, but know there's plenty to see and observe in my own backyard.
What lessons have you learned from your mom?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! XOXO
