Did you have a nice Easter? We couldn't have asked for a better day! We had an amazing worship service, had lunch with all of our local family, and spent the day playing outside! It was perfect.
It's crazy to think about, but we're already rapidly approaching the next holiday, and it's a good one. Mother's Day!
I'm lucky enough to have 3 mothers to celebrate on Mother's Day. One mom, one mother-in-law, and one stepmother-in-law. If you've seen my goals lately, you know that we're trying really hard to pay off our consumer debt this year. I love to give gifts, but we have a pretty tight budget for a while. As much as I would love to shower the mother's in my life with jewelry and flowers, it's just not in the cards this year.
Now cards, however...those I can do! (see what I did there? Ha!)
I am a firm believer in the idea that a small, thoughtful gift can be just as meaningful, if not more so, than a huge, fancy gift. Something with a sweet note, and a treat you know they will love. Hallmark to the rescue! At Walmart they have so many beautiful Mother's Day cards.
There is something for every mom. Sweet ones, sparkly ones, ones that will make her laugh, and ones that might make her cry.
Cadbury for my Mother-in-law who grew up in England.
Classic milk chocolate for my Stepmother-in-law. She's a classic!
And dark chocolate with sea salt for my Momma. It's her favorite!
I get to deliver my mom's gift in person, but my mother-in-law and stepmother-in-law live out of town. They'll have to get their gifts by mail. One more simple way to dress up this gift? Washi tape!
Add a little to the card envelope...
Then add some to a padded shipping envelope. Who doesn't love getting pretty mail?
Seal it all up and pop it in the mail! Simple blessings for the mothers in your life!
