Relaxing for Mother’s Day

Now that my charity event is finished for another year, and Mother’s Day is around the corner, the only thing I could think of doing to celebrate is R-E-L-A-X.

I’m sure a lot of mamas feel the same way. I just love enjoying the day with my boys and husband and taking in our little family moments. I’m looking forward to chilling with my boys, watching a show or two, eating some easy meals and cozying up on the couch.

Most days, we are busy with lots of things like school, after-school activities, and weekends can fly by. I want to just take in the day and chill. That’s what makes me the happiest is spending some down time with my family.

Hallmark’s special package came just in time to help me with that! Comfy slippers, a comfort wrap in my favourite colour, and so much more. Here are a few of my favourites:

Mom Love frame $19.95, Signature Cards $9.99-$11.99

Love Signature Card $9.99, Fierce Love book $15.95

To me cards are everything. They are my most special gifts that I have received. I cherish the notes and cards I have from my mama and my boys. They are like preserved conversations I can have again.

This Hallmark book has lovely sayings inside. Here are a few:

  • A mama bear stands up, speaks up, fights hard, fears not, holds on, hugs tight, and above all, loves like you wouldn’t believe.
  • Until her children are strong enough to stand on their own, she is their strength. And even after that, she goes right on being strong for them.
  • Love is powerful. She is proof.

Here’s to relaxing, appreciating the simple comforts of home, and taking time to enjoy the moments with our families.

I actually got a day of quiet (well, for about 2 hours). Then we headed to dinner where my husband wrangled our youngest.
