On my insistence, we don’t make a big deal out of Mothers’ Day chez nous. I’m just grateful that we’ll be able to have Jeune Homme over for a visit this year. (Last Mothers’ Day, his group home was on lockdown.)
Mothers’ Day gift ideas
If you’re looking for Mothers’ Day gift ideas, here are few of my personal favorites. They’re practical yes, but will still make her feel pampered.
Miel de Lavande candle. This is still my favorite candle, and the one I keep on my nightstand. It’s a gorgeous lavender fragrance, warmed with a bit of honey.
Silk pillowcase. Helps prevent bedhead and sleep creases on the face. And it feels so luxurious!
Baume de Rose. This just feels so special to use. A lovely texture, and very light rose fragrance. (And is also nice to massage into your cuticles.)
Market tote. Makes a trip to the farmers’ market feel like a visit to France…
Exfoliating hand wash. We are addicted to this stuff, and make sure to never run out. Great for “gardener’s hands…”
Once more unto the breach…another live Zoom!
On Saturday, I’ll be wrapping up my live Zoom series with Brian of Brian + MW. This week, we’ll be doing a “5-Minute Face.” We’ve been having such a good time with these Zooms, and have had such a great response. Brian will have some special offers for attendees too!

The best thing I did in 2020…you can do now
I’m so glad I re-joined Faster Way To Fat Loss last summer, and thanks to my friend Karen who is also my coach, stuck with the program. My primary goal was to improve my fitness and build lean body mass (muscle and bone). I’ve not only done that, but have increased my strength and improved my mobility, balance, and posture. (I’ve been knock-kneed since childhood, and am much less so now.) And yes, I’ve dropped a few inches.
There’s a new round of FWTWL starting up next Monday, May 3, and Karen still has a few available slots in her coaching group. If you’ve been looking for a wellness/fitness program you can do at home (the 30-minute workouts are my favorite part!) I urge you to give it a try.
The great thing about the workouts is that they’re available from an app on my phone, so portable. We’re planning to travel this year, and I plan to keep up with my workouts when we do. Since I won’t be packing my hand weights, I’ve ordered the Fit Kit, which includes strength bands I can use for all of the workouts.
Tomorrow we get our second Moderna vaccine ! 🎉 I had no side-effects from the first one, aside from a sore arm for about 36 hours. But we’ve been warned that the second dose may be a little rougher, so we’ve cleared our schedules for the next couple of days. I’m just so darned grateful!!!
Do you have plans for Mothers’ Day?
