In Praise of Moms.
It’s the big day this coming weekend. Mother’s Day, this Sunday. 
We all know a day is not enough, Mom deserves a lifetime of appreciation.
Call. Visit. Write. 
Tell her all the reasons you appreciate her love.
The perfect gift for Mom?
You. Making memories. Spending time together.
Do something Mom loves to do, but more importantly, be present with her.
The present is you. So, make plans.
Mom loves wine? Winery tour. Share a glass.
Gardening? Work in her garden with her, pick out a new perennial together. Learn something new!
Puzzles? 400 pieces, together.
She’s a foodie? Share a cooking class … or do Brunch.
Into bird watching? Take a hike and bring your camera plus some birdseed.
Pedicures? Lucky, you. Book two chairs. 
(Side note: Yes, Men need pedicures too and she will love showing you off). 
Reading? A Café & Bookstore afternoon.
History Buff? Visit a local landmark.
Pierce Brosnan? Thomas Crown Affair & popcorn.
Music lover? Find a local concert. Music brings people together.
Sunday Drive + ice cream finisher.
Nature Lover? Visit a Butterfly Conservatory.
 Trivia whiz? Break out the Trivial Pursuit ~ yes, she’s going to own you!
Vintage collector? Flea Market adventure.
Whatever you decide, make it quality time together AND bring flowers.
Be sure to take photos to mark the day. It’s not always about the gifts.
 Perhaps your Mother would love help updating her home? Consider GC’s with ARIM.
 I’d love to meet your Mom and help her with ideas to makeover her home. 

(You can come too).
