Just in the nick of time I pulled this Mother’s Day card together and to offer you a free printable (Click Here to download). Just in case you are doing this last minute like me! 😉 I’m going to hold out my honesty card here for a sec. I don’t know if you are like me, but every Mother’s Day I struggle with wanting to just take the day off and coast the whole day…because let’s face it…as mother’s that’s near impossible even if your husband “takes over” for the day. My husband can be in the kitchen, and I am some where else in the house, and my girls will yell out in the house if I can get them a snack. Really?!
Back to my original point of wanting to take the day off…I also have Moms that have put in their time and more than deserve to be celebrated beyond measure. They have been at this waaaay longer than I have! Buuuut….I. AM. TIRED. What do I do? Throw on my big girl pants and put something together for the amazing Moms in my life or coast and hope that they understand this time around? In the mean time, I am popping this card in the mail. And my sentiments are true. Where ever your Mama is, it feels like home. All is right in the world. Thank you to all of the inspiring Moms that have come before me and set the bar high. We can only scratch the surface to express our gratitude for the countless sacrifices made and always having that soft spot to land when times are tough. Thank you Mom!
Happy Mother’s Day – XoXo
Mother’s Day seems early this year and it’s the same week as teacher appreciation week so I’m a little behind the eight ball (what’s new?). But in the knick of time, I whipped this card up for my Mom to pop in the mail today.
As a Mom for seven years now, I always feel like there are those moments when you are dealing with one issue or another with your kids and lightbulbs go off in your head. You realize you did the exact same thing as a kid and how frustrated your mom must have been with you! So to all those Mother’s out there that have put in their time, I say sorry for holding my breath until I was blue. Sorry for arguing with my brother about who has more room in the backseat of the car. Sorry for not going to the bathroom before we left the house. Sorry for waking you up at night just because I thought I heard something. Sorry for throwing up in the grocery store checkout. Sorry for complaining about what’s for dinner. Sorry for my messy room and leaving a trail of stuff where ever I went. Sorry wearing hideous outfits…shall I go on? I could, but it would take all day. To tell your mom sorry, just click here to download your free PDF. Happy Mother’s Day to all you amazing Mom’s out there and thank you!
Happy Monday! I tried getting this recipe card ready for you last week, but was sidetracked with other duties throughout the week. Boo! BUT, I plowed through and got the last bits of it together this morning. Yahoo! Sharing recipes have long been a way of bringing families and communities together. An expression of love through food. No matter how we communicate recipes, whether it be online or cookbooks, sharing food we love will always be relevant to the human spirit.
The recipe cards on my Etsy shop are one of my biggest sellers. They are easy to work with, you don’t have to hand write a recipe (I loath writing a recipe!), and you can use them over and over just by saving a new copy. Who can argue with that?!
Recipe cards make a great personalized gift for your mom, sister or friends and are great for showers. And It’s close to wedding season folks! I’ve paired some of my favorite recipes on cute cards with some tea towels and kitchen gadgets from the brides registry for a sweet and personalized gift. So until Mother’s Day you can download this 4×6 editable and printable recipe card right here…for free! Hope you enjoy!
