Mother’s Day is May 10!
Mothers, including anyone who plays that role in your life, have added a lot more jobs to their workload these days. While the usual options for celebrating them may not be available this year, you can still show your appreciation and support.
Here are a few ideas we’ve gathered:
Deck out her front door
Build your own bagel spread
Take a virtual cooking or flower arranging class
Have a picnic in the backyard
Order a Mother’s Day Brunch to-go from a local restaurant.
Many of us here at Vivacity are also mothers, so we always appreciate someone preparing a meal for us. Here’s a recipe you can try that's simple, adaptable, fresh and healthy:
