Since becoming a mom almost seven years ago, I’ve enjoyed a variety of Mother’s Day celebrations. I’ve waited in a long brunch line with a baby in tow and enjoyed homemade scones after lingering in bed. We’ve had picnic lunches and fancy restaurant dinners.
Each celebration has had a different level of “success”, but what was most important was spending the day with my family, even with the comedy of errors that often seem to crop up on special days.
To help make Mother’s Day a little more relaxing for everyone involved, I’ve put together four menus that are fitting for a variety of celebration styles.
