On Mother's Day, we celebrate moms all over the world, and we recognize all the hard work they do for their children and families. You momma, just like other moms, deserve to celebrate today, to sit back and relax!
So Dear Momma,
Today, is your day! This is your Official Invitation to let yourself rest and relax. No RSVP necessary, participation is mandatory! 😉
Here are a few ways to make sure you feel celebrated, loved, and appreciated today (and every day).
Mother's Day photos are so important, because these images will become your cherished little treasures as the years go by. Your children are growing up so fast, and you don't want to miss out on capturing their beautiful smiles and cute little faces. These photographs also give YOU a chance to actually BE in the images. How many times do you ask your husband to take a photo of you and your little one only to have half of your face cut off or one eye is closed? Believe me, it happens to me all the time too. A professional portrait photographer will take the stress out of the session and will make sure you with all your body parts show up on the photos - no half heads, no blurry faces.
#2 Chance to buy "that" outfit you really want but feel bad purchasing
There is no better reason for buying a brand new outfit than to celebrate Mother's Day, especially if you decide to get your pictures taken. No husband or significant other can say no to it when they know it is for "your upcoming photoshoot".
So here is your hint: Buy That Dress! It will look amazing on you, and you will feel so good and confidant.
#3 Grab your favourite drink or snack and enjoy the outdoors
Now that you have gone shopping, had your pictures taken/booked, it's time to get your favourite drink or snack. Head out to Starbucks (hint to my own husband) and grab your favourite treats and go for a nice walk. One of the best spots in Toronto is High Park. Here, you can enjoy a nice open space, lots of greenery, and beautiful flowers. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
If you love flowers and enjoy creativity, you may want to check out the Fleures de Villes. Artists have created floral art pieces dedicated for famous women who have contributed to our society. Tickets go fast, but you might be in luck. 😉
Children will love it too. They will be entertained by playing, running around and getting their crazies out; and you get to enjoy the outdoors with your family. It's a win win for all. And I have not even mentioned the best part yet: the kids will be so tired, they will stop yelling inside the house. Aaahhh quiet time, finally!
#4 Time with family
Time with your family: children, significant other, your own mom, and everyone else can get together and enjoy the day as a big happy family. Put your daily tasks, your duties, your housework tasks and just about everything else aside and let yourself relax. Enjoy the sun on your face, your children's laughter, your love's hugs, and the special yet fleeting moments of the day. Take selfies, laugh as hard as you can, enjoy the yummy food, and make the best of the day.
Momma, I know it is hard to "allow" yourself to rest, to take care of your own needs, to not do house work for a day. But believe me when I say this, the dishes will be there tomorrow, your laundry will wait in the basket, your floor dose not need to be washed every day. Your children are waiting for you to come outside, play at the park, or have BBQ party.
Go momma, and enjoy your day! You deserve it!
