Sunday was Mother’s Day and so I went to my parents’ place first thing to help my dad and Louisa prepare a special brunch for my mom. We had been planning to go on a picnic, but the weather was all wrong for that idea. It was a cold, rainy day here in D.C..
My dad made my mom’s favorite salad. He added his crispy acacia bark topping which adds a delightful crunch to each bite. It’s a secret family recipe, so I cannot share it on this blog. Sorry!
I brought my mom a potted peony, which was in full bloom. My sister, Louisa, gave my mom some leg-warmers she and my dad found at the giraffe boutique a few weeks ago.
I asked my mom about her first Mother’s Day and she reminisced about how small I had been then – a mere six feet. I can’t remember what life was like when I was that small, but I do remember when Louisa was a newborn, so I do know what it’s like to have a wee giraffe around.
We had a splendid celebration with good food and even better company. I think my mom had a terrific day.
Did you have a nice Mother’s Day with your mother? If so, what did you do to celebrate?
