It is that time again! Momma gets a day to relax. In the United States, Mother’s Day lands on May 8th this year, the first Sunday in May. What are you doing for Mom this year?

There are so many ways to show your love and appreciation.

For instance, how about a nice breakfast for her? These yummy and are perfect for a Sunday morning. Speaking of eggs, I have a super-easy and a delicious .

While a delish morning meal is a great way to say thank you, a gift that suits her personality can be a lovely way to show your love and appreciation.

If she loves history, maybe a great book or a special tour of a nearby museum. Does she love music? How about some concert tickets or a limited edition DVD set? An art lover? Book her an art class you can do together or treat her to a print or piece of something you know she loves. Another fun option: Make plans to check out an Affordable Art Fair () or local craft show together.

For a mom who loves fitness, treat her to a pretty water bottle or class pack or some gear or an outfit she’s been eyeing.

If this day is hard for you, know that I’m sending you so much love. Take whatever space or time you need to feel and process your feelings, and if it helps to connect with others or touch base with a licensed mental healthcare practitioner around this time, don’t be afraid to seek the support you need.
