It’s always funny to me to be in the UK when Mother’s Day is being promoted in all of the shop windows in March, because the US date is in May.
I wish I could tell you I’d be taking my mom somewhere fun like a day at the Columbia Road Flower Market here in London, a tasty brunch in Notting Hill or an even sitting in North Tonawanda on my parents’ giant couch with homemade margaritas.
Truth is, there will be an ocean between us, but we’ll chat on the phone and have a day together when I’m home in about a month instead. I’ll bring some goodies from London, because she’s the best mom ever, of course.
Here’s a few bits and pieces if you’re shopping for yours:
1. Brown Eggs and Jam Jars cookbook 2. Pretty green scarf from J. Crew 3. A box of everyday blank photo notecards from my summer collection 4. A lovely jasmine candle 5. My favourite L’Occitane hand lotions to tuck in each bag or keep on my desk 6. An elegant square link bracelet 7. A planter made with love from my dad’s etsy shop 8. A silky kimono robe 9. Louboutin nailpolish in a sleek bottle 10. A Christian Lacroix notebook
Do you celebrate US Mother’s Day? What are your plans?

I celebrate my mom in March but I always send her an extra card in May:) She loves it. Anyway, I adore your note-cards and that cookbook looks delicious. Kisses, sweetie

I just finished shopping for my mom and also a bit nostalgic about the fact that I won’t be with her for the day, but that I will have to celebrate in Colombia a month later. 😉

Oh, fun! I’m glad you get to go to Colombia and celebrate with her. Looking forward to hearing all about the travels you’ve been on recently and what’s coming next! 🙂

Sadly mine’s no longer with us but we always celebrated in March. I was taken aback when I came to Trinidad all those years ago and found that May is the month to celebrate. Considering Trinidad was British, it has over the years adopted all things American!

That’s really interesting how much the American influence has taken over. We noticed the same thing in St. Lucia last year – there’s such a strange mix of things that are local, British and American.
