Mothers Day is quickly coming. This is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May and traditionally involves presenting mothers with flowers, cards and other gifts. Do you have the perfect gift for your mother?
Sometimes it’s the simple things that make us mothers happy. It could be something as simple as making a meal for your mom, doing a load of laundry for her, maybe an extra kiss or hug with an “I love You”, or even maybe giving her time to herself. I know I would be happy with any of those ideas, that really wouldn’t cost a penny. I think as a mother, we just so busy trying to take care of everyone else, we most of the time forget to take care of ourselves. I’m pretty sure that is just a natural instinct when you become a mother, at least it has been for me.
I follow a blog called Greater Good Science Center and they talk a lot about having a happy life. Sure that seems easy, but we so easily get side-tracked! I want to share a short simple video that was just on their blog about mothers. In this video, Christine explains why boosting Mom’s happiness is
good for the whole family. Click here to view it.
Give us a call or send us an email and we will gladly help you find the perfect gift to show your mom how much you really appreciate all that she does for you! We will even gift wrap it or put a basket together for FREE!

Go Green!!! Earth Day is April 22nd. We are constantly told to Go Green, Recycle, and Save! I am so impressed with myself because I never used to recycle and my mom and sister would get on my butt about it. I’m so glad they did, because it isn’t hard to do it!! All the little things we do sure make a difference. Here are a few simple ideas to Go Green:
- Energy. Install compact florescent light bulbs when older incandescent bulbs burn out.
- Turn off lights when you leave a room.
- Install a low-flow shower head.
- Use less Gas. Walk, bike or carpool to work.
- If you do drive, combine all your errands for the week in one trip.
- Buy locally raised, humane and organic meats, dairy, fruits and vegetables.
- Switch one appliance to an energy efficient model (look for the “energy star” label)
- Stop using bottle water. Install a water filter to purify tap water.
- Wash laundry in cold water instead of hot.
- Fix leaky faucets.
