Mother’s day 2019
Mother’s Day is on the horizon (May 12th, if you need an extra reminder…) and sometimes, the best way to honor your mom is through a quote. And if that quote happens to involve food, even better!
If you think about it, Mother’s Day and food have a lot in common. It’s a day where mom shouldn’t be cooking for the family — instead, she should be feasting on croissants and fruit salad and brunch mimosas while putting her feet up and relaxing (for once!). Since so many people use food as a sign of love, Mother’s Day should be all about good food. Being a mom is hard work, and it’s often times a little thankless. If she’s shaped you to be a kindhearted, determined individual, she did a wonderful job and deserves to be rewarded with something special.
