Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Good morning and Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Every day is still continuing the blur together for us but we still make sure to get fresh air, make a special cocktail on the weekends, cook a good recipe, and soak up some quality time as a family. The weather is getting so hot here in Tucson. I’m a little sad we had to miss out on a month of spring and the prime hiking weather but now it’s time to get excited for pool season.

I wanted to share some ideas for Mother’s Day to make the day special. Honestly, even if you’re not celebrating the day, I think these are good suggestions to make any day better.

7th Annual Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival

7th Annual Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival

For Valentine’s Day, Chris and I opted to celebrate a day late with the Off the Vine Arizona Wine Festival. We used to love spending the day wine-tasting pre-kids in Willcox or in Woodinville, Washington. I figured this was the perfect way to celebrate and spend some one-on-one time – the first since celebrating our wedding anniversary at The Parish in November.
