I wonder every May why we don’t celebrate Mother’s Day all month long instead of just one day.
The only way to do this is let your family know that it’s all about you and some ideas and dreams you’ve wanted that you don’t have time to ask for since you’re too busy being a mom.
Tell your family you would like a beautiful orchid along with a shopping spree, or a brunch cruise, or maybe even tea with some mom friends.
Here are some fun and local events happening to celebrate moms all month long.
