More than ever before I’ve been reminded of the sacred gift of time with my family. Our lives can change in an instant, and time is one of those irreplaceable things that is the foundation of wonderful memories.
Mother’s Day is coming up and going to look a lot different than past Mother’s Days for a lot of us. Annual traditions may be canceled, or potential trips may have been postponed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make Mother’s Day special at home or from afar.
I’ve never made too much of a fuss over making Mother’s Day fancy. I prefer something simple, easy, and focused around the kids. Breakfast in bed, or maybe one of my favorite meals for dinner, and a handmade craft or card is right up my alley. I’m always grateful for the appreciation of my husband and kids, but I also celebrate my own mom and the other women in my life on Mother’s Day!
I’ve been a customer of The Bouqs Company for years and was thrilled to partner with them for this post.
Flowers are such a classic Mother’s Day gift, and it’s truly the perfect way to celebrate the women in your life on that day, especially now when you can’t be together. The Bouqs Company makes shopping for and sending flowers so easy, and their selection of farm-fresh responsibly sourced flowers is unmatched.
The tulips I received from The Bouqs Company were absolutely stunning! They became the centerpiece in the kitchen and since they arrived in bud form, I savored them for a few weeks!
Mother’s Day this year is going to look like a lot of other weekend days for our family. Playing outside, eating a snack on the porch, and just spending time together is something the kids and I both enjoy! Of course, sweet words from my husband and beautiful flowers will make the day feel extra special for me, and that’s really all I could want.
The older my kids get, the more and more I can see the sacrifice and service my mom did for my siblings and me from when we were kids until even the present day. And I would have had a completely different experience in motherhood if I wasn’t surrounded by dear girlfriends who were also having and raising kids around the same ages as mine.
The Bouqs Company is offering a 20% off discount code “SMALLTHINGS20” that is valid until 5/11/2020. The website has a dedicated Mother’s Day section to help you choose, but I still found it impossible to select my favorite from all the pretty options!
