It snuck up on us this year. We’ve been so focused on schools and getting supplies for classrooms we almost missed an opportunity to remind you that Mom was your FIRST teacher. Here’s a list with heartfelt treasures gathered by Chrisula. She says,  “Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the special women that helped make “Life “ possible for us. It is a time to honor the Ladies that raise and nurture us and guide us to fulfillment. Show them how much you treasure them by spending time with them. Take a walk together, make a favorite family recipe, create some art, or attend one of their favorite past times with them. This Mother’s Day List is a special one for sure. It has

lots of beautiful treats for our mothers! Send mom something for Mother’s Day, and then set up a plan to send her something each month to remind her of just how important she is. One of my most special memories of this last year was creating lists, with her sitting by my side, helping me & laughing with me and giving me the extra push to make work here at Udorami meaningful and unique! Thanks MOM! I miss you and I love you!” The second list is mine so keep on scrolling

Sip and Paint at Kelly Jo's
This worked out sooo well for my birthday and Valentine's day. Eventually the whole family will do a session. We love hanging our own art on the wall. We get an appreciation for our own creations and share them with my mom. You should hear my husband crow and point to his works. He says he feels such a sense of accomplishment.
