Before I was a mom and after I'd moved away from home, Mother's Day was a holiday that I sort of glided past—of course, I'd send my mom a card and call her, but I rarely took the effort to do more than that. Now that I'm a mom (how is this already my third Mother's Day?), it's become one of my favorite days of the year. Geoffrey and Sloan always plan something special (well, mostly Geoffrey, but Sloan definitely helps), starting in the morning with one of my favorite breakfasts and it always makes me feel so loved and appreciated. It's such a little thing, but I can now speak from experience that it goes a long way (note to future Sloan, if you're reading this). Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! x
P.S., A few weeks ago, I shared a post that mentioned Sloan's friend who passed away. To honor his memory, his family is rehabilitating a playground in an underserved area of Los Angeles so other children can play and learn as he once did. If you would like to help, you can can donate to their cause here.
