soooo…i’m still trying to figure out what to get my mom for mother’s day. i’ve been asking around from friends and co-workers what they’re doing for their moms on that special day.
it’s a lot more difficult now to figure how to spend more time with my family now that i have BOTH my family and my husband’s family. it’s challenging because i would really like to dedicate spending more time with my own. i love my parents and hate the fact that they’re getting older. when i was younger, they always seemed so strong and invincible to me. but now that i’m getting older- it is obvious that is no longer the case.
for this mother’s day- it looks like i have to split the day in two to celebrate with his mom and then my mom. that’s one of the drawbacks of being married, sometimes you have to sacrifice one for the other. :(
anywho, i remember i had saved an idea on my pinterest boards for a thoughtful mother’s day gift. the best idea thus far is a memory box listing out several memories, favorites, and life events. it would also contain a love note to my mom. i only have a couple days to put this together so i hope i get started and finish on time! for each listing, i will provide 10 things- could be words, memory, or feeling- anything. i think this is a great idea and hope it turns out well!
you should make one for your mama too! here’s a great source for the idea!

If you want to be a creative person, then you’re gonna have to be creative in how you put your career together. There isn’t a path. Part of the creativity is making your path.
1. Spend more time with them. Tell them that you love them and appreciate the hard work they are doing.
2. Help with chores. For example, help look after the house, take the garbage out, or mope the floor. Help groceries shopping or cooking.
3. Ask how their day went. If they’ve been working, ask if they’re tired and if they’d need a message of some sort. Prepare their dinner.
4. Help out with the finance. If you’re still really young, don’t spend too much or want too much. Your parents work really hard to make ends meet, so show that you appreciate their efforts by not making them waste their hard earned money. If you’re older, work for yourself and help chip in to the family expenses.
