LIFE :: Happy (Belated) Mother's Day
Mother's Day at the Davis household was excellent this year! Really, it is up there on the list of best Mother's Days ever.
Mama Davis is not only my mom, but one of my closest friends. We have a unique relationship that is often closer to a friendship than the typical mother/daughter roles. She can always make me laugh. Even though we've had some mom-umental (haha get it? Man, I'm cheesy) fights, I appreciate that I can talk to my mom about anything under the sun.
Mom, since I know you read this, I love you!
Yesterday morning, we had a family brunch at our house. My grandma and aunts came to enjoy the delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, and grits that my dad made. My job was to provide the parfaits.
I think they turned out nicely, don't you? They were also 100% scrumptious.
I got my mom a binder from NoFo, a great restaurant in a converted Piggly Wiggly. The binder, titled "Keeping Coupons", provides an organized way to house and use all those coupons that we always seem to forget to use. Maybe this will help...
They have an entire collection of organizational binders for keeping house, holding dine-in menus, and keeping recipes. We may need to start a collection.
After we stuffed ourselves with breakfast food, we all went down to the farmer's market. I love the farmer's market. I got myself some fresh strawberries and some local honey. A couple people have told me that eating a tablespoon of local honey a day helps ease allergy symptoms. I've had awful allergies this year, so I'm willing to give it a try. Does any one have any additional allergy advice?
The rest of the day was spent watching Bridget Jones' Diary and Clueless. I couldn't ask for a better Mother's Day.
Here is a picture I found of my mom and I from.... 1994? 1995? Some time in the mid-1990s.
Last but not least, this is Mama Davis looking absolutely stunning. Wow.
I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!
