One day a year is reserved to drop everything and hold our Mother’s on a pedestal, a place they deserve to be on a daily basis.
MOTHER’S DAY! Sunday, May 13th
Two years ago, I was lucky enough to get to spend Mother’s Day with my mother, grandmother (Gram!) and my Aunt Gayle. 3-for-1 #winning
We celebrated by spending the day at the Brookfield Zoo – only a hop, skip and a jump from Chi – followed by a family barbecue. It’s also the year I decided to get into the jam business and made strawberry-rhubarb jam for each mother. That was a short-lived hobby…
Last year, we celebrated Mother’s Day at the Cubs Game. It was freezing, but any time is quality time when spent with my Mother.
We’re still in the last-minute planning phases for this year’s Mother’s Day.
Here are some ideas I came up with:
- Brunch in Downtown Chicago
- Help her relax with a Spa Day
- Take it outdoors at Starved Rock State Park
- Learn something at the Field Museum
- Celebrate on agua with Odyssey Cruises
Additional recommendations welcome. I also absolutely love this article on Mother’s Day’s ideas in Chicago.
