This year Mother’s Day is May 10; It is coming up fast. If you love your mother, and you should, then you will want to get her something nice. After all, she did create you. Mother’s Day (and Father’s Day) is such a wonderful idea. Dedicating a day to celebrate mom for all she does for you. This got me thinking, who came up with Mother’s Day?
Many countries around the world celebrate mom, but the American version of Mother’s Day came around in 1908 from the mind of Anna Jarvis. It became an official holiday in 1914. Over 100 years of celebrating mom!
Now that we know a little background for this special day, it is time to start thinking of ways to honor mom. You could always go with the traditional flowers, candy, and a card but that is boring. Even though mom would still appreciate it. If you are a kiddo, or you do not have a lot of money, you could always make something. My mom would always love when I made her something, whether it be a clay imprint of my hand or a picture frame. However, I am 22 and I do not think my mom wants a macaroni portrait from me.
When I was a teenager my mom and I would always buy flowers and garden all day on Mother’s Day. It is a nice gift and a nice way to spend time with your mom. If your mom does not have a green thumb you could always go for a really nice family portrait. I am not talking about going to Sears studio and having a teenager take your picture in front of a black back drop. I am talking about having a professional photographer come over to your house and take a nice professional shot of the family. After all, your mom is only a mom because of you. Why not capture a moment with the family forever? Bella Rose Photography offers a one hour on location photoshoot through LivingSocial. It only costs $143.00
