Good morning friends, a very happy Friday to you. How are you? Are you seeing the light at the end of the tunnel? Although as I write that I am not sure what that means. Mother’s day is Sunday, do you have any plans? Will you be celebrating yourself if you are home alone? You should? Will you set up a Zoom call with mom or stand in her front garden and say hello from a distance? Whatever you do, don’t forget to make your mom and the mother figures in your life feel extra special on Sunday.
I hope that you enjoy my Friday favorites.
