Happy Mother’s Day


I’m feeling very fortunate to have been able to spend today with my mom. My gift to her was an experience. No object gifts, no cards, no trash (she’s come to expect those terms from me). I took her to a concert held in an incredible space at one of her favorite museums. Nine violinists, four violists, three cellists, and two bassists played a program of classical and contemporary music in a small, “round” theater (it was actually more cubic than round). The acoustics were amazing. Later we went out for dinner. It was a great day.  I’ll never forget it.

    Hi Colleen. I think a concert is a great present. My mother always wants to spend more time with me. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that and hard make time for it too. Thanks for the reminder! I hope to see my mom soon.

    PS: Megan Graham from Into the Wardrobe referred me to your blog. It’s so gorgeous. Love the project, design, and the photos! Hope you can visit my blog and maybe I’ll see you around PVD. KIT!

    Great tip! :) A fun experience is my favorite type of gift to give and receive! I hate giving people junk they don’t really want, and I hate getting it too. Sometimes I’ll also give edibles as a gift, since they disappear or can be shared with others.
