Good morning everyone and what a lovely day this is! We are celebrating Mother’s Day this weekend.
On a side note I do want to mentioned my dear sister’s blog Parenthics. She writes about parenting and women’s empowerment. I thought about her while writing this post because the title of this post is A Day Off From Parenting.
History of Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day derives from the ancient Greeks who honored Rhea. I remember learning about Greek history from my middle school days since I was the little kid in the back corner who asked about Mother’s Day. Goddess Rhea was the mother of all gods and goddess of female fertility, motherhood, and generation.

I bought a bouquet of red roses and her favorite chocolate: Lindt Lindor caramel truffles. I cut the stems of roses at the bottom and did the flower arranging myself. I love being creative and this is one of my many talents. In addition, she received a Happy Mother’s Day text in the morning as well 🙂
Our plan today for my mom is possibly going to watch Captain America: Civil War. I say Bahama mama because we went on vacation to an island a few years back and she loved it 🙂
More will be posted soon on the food I made throughout the day.
What did you do for your mom? Did you cook for her, go out to eat or both? Let me know in the comments below.
