It was a great weekend to celebrate our youngest child’s graduation. We hosted a party with his friends and parents at a local brewery. After an assortment of White C, a house Chardonnay or a Red Blend, we packed the last of Evan’s 27 college t-shirts and 1/2 dozen pairs of grey sweats into Ikea bags with 40-pound weight limits.

And then Mother’s Day showed up. So here is to my mom all the moms, dog moms, grandmothers, aunties, and friends. Women who show up for each other to listen, vent and make us laugh until we cross our legs into bendy straws to keep us from tinkling.

Remember you cannot spell mothers without others.

Shop Notes: Organize your fridge with these glass storage containers. We ordered these solar lights for our side yard. My sister ordered them too and loves them too! They are not the prettiest, but they are effective and great for those not photo-worthy spots in your yard, but you want a little glow. I love the pillow covers on Etsy.
