What are your plans for Mother’s Day?

Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday (May 10, 2020) and it may look different for you this year because of COVID-19 or maybe it doesn’t. I guess it just depends on how you normally celebrate. The one thing I always do on Mother’s Day is attend church. I’m thankful my church still offers services digitally and a little bit of "normalcy" will happen this Sunday.


When Brian asked what I wanted to do and what he and the girls could do for me (even though surprise gifts are welcomed, we have no problem telling each other exactly what we want because that ensures all parties involved will be satisfied 😊), I said all I want is cooperation ALL DAY. The likelihood of cooperation happening ALL DAY is slim to none, so I told him I wanted a lemon plant and a day full of love. That’s not a lot to ask for, is it?


I’ll also tell him to read this blog! Feel free to share this blog as a big ol’ hint to those loved ones in your life who need a little extra help in the gift giving department.


*I love this Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2020 from St. Louis Moms Blog. There are a lot of local retailers’ included, such as:


  • Local mom and blogger Meghan Layne, of SoLayne Designs, has the best heart and makes some beautiful jewelry! We’re excited to feature her stunning customizable bracelet stack.


  • Greetabl is a St. Louis based company that helps you craft your greeting with personalized photos, messages, and a sweet gift in a cute mini box.


  • Treat the mom in your life to a delicious charcuterie box this Mother’s Day, including meats, cheese, cookies, and a beautiful mini succulent plant from For the Love of Grazing and LoKey Designs.


*Sugarfire Wentzville is offering a really nice Mother’s Day brunch. They had me at "Add a Qt. of Mimosas and Add a Qt. of Bloody Marys".
