Celebrate Mothers Day at Home this year with these simple and frugal ideas for a happy and thoughtful day that doesn't break the bank!
In our current situation your usual Mothers Day plans most likely have to change this year. Change isn't fun, but it's also an opportunity for something new. I wanted to share with you some ideas for a Mothers Day at home and how to celebrate.
If you haven't had to stop yourself, or lost the war with cutting your own hair or your kids… you're winning this war in my books! I've cut my own, my husbands and my kids for the first time and lets say I'm happy to stay at home and not in public 😉
In all honesty though this is the same as every year, Mothers truly need to be honoured this Mothers Day. I want to help you figure out what your ultimate mothers day might look like. How will you celebrate the women in your life or your motherhood journey with your family?
If we learn anything from 2020, may it be a clear vision of what's important and that our time and actions match our values. For most of us that's family, and if you're reading this post than I know you agree.
