Mother’s Day Brunch 2019 at Goodall’s Kitchen

Let’s face it, Mother’s Day might be a little different this year with social distancing in place. Many of us might not even have the opportunity to see or spend time with our Mother’s right now. {I’m so sorry y’all!!}. Don’t let the current circumstance stop you from sending, spreading and receiving LOVE! Honoring Mother’s Day is even more important right now!

Many of us are working overtime, running through the day, doing all the things, all the time! Working, balancing the home, home school, cooking all the meals, trying to stay healthy and sane and let’s not forget PARENTING!! We all deserve a day we can kick up our feet and relax, right? I’m surely looking forward to a joyful day off!

Thankfully, even if you can’t host your mom for brunch this year, you can still virtually celebrate the occasion. {Thanks Zoom!} I don’t know about you, but CELEBRATION has taken on a whole new level of fun in our home. We look for holidays to anticipate, to celebrate and make an event around. Our kids really need the fun and excitement in our lives, and I do too!!

Hoping to celebrate Mom, {or yourself!!!} and not sure where to start? Keep reading for some fun ideas!

Olive + M Face Oil

Create a self care package for Mom with my favorite relaxation essentials. Start with EO Natural Bath Salts and Bubble Soaks . The Be Lovely scent smells so fresh and feminine! Pair it with a woodsy Santal scented candle like this one. Add these Radically Rejuvenating under eye Hydrogels by Acure. Don’t skip this {ATX local!} face oil by Olive + M. I have all the heart eyes for this oil. The magical potion Hydrates + repairs with natural plant based oils, and feels light weight! My skin is extra glowy when I apply it post bubble bath! Finish off your basket with The Hydration Trio from Coco Rose. The body polish is life changing and feels so luxurious! Add a good book and a decadent chocolate bar to send your mom into a Sunday afternoon Bliss!

My intention this Mother’s Day is to really be grateful for my blessings! As hard my job as a Mother can be some days… I’m so thankful that I have the opportunity to be a Mom to Zander & Zia. The unconditional love they show me and the life lessons they teach me every day is unmatched.
I’m also so very lucky to have my Mom by my side every step of the way! She is the rock to all of us! To my Mother in Law in Heaven. We miss you dearly and are will be jamming to Aretha Franklin in your honor during Mother’s Day brunch!
