Let's talk about Mother's Day for a minute. Have you thought about it? Are you tired of doing the same old thing? Mother's don't care. We just like that we're thought about and appreciated. Wow, I said we. I'm a mom now!
That being said, if you’re looking for a few new ideas, I have some unconventional activities you can gift Mom. She might even learn something while having fun! These activities are offered throughout the United States, so don’t hesitate to find something in your area.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Now, what exactly are we celebrating? Well, it's time for a (condensed) history lesson. Every year, America observes May 5th as a day to celebrate Mexico's defeat of the French army in the Battle of Puebla on May 5,1862. President Benito Juarez had proclaimed that Mexico was too poor to pay its debts to foreign countries. Clearly unhappy about this, the French promptly invaded Mexico to make it a French territory.
My family spent Thanksgiving in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The weather was spectacular! It was nice to "prolong" winter since Vermont feels like winter almost six months out of the year.
While I love to relax and eat Mexican food, I have a weakness for the Mexican markets. I could have brought back suitcases full of goodies, but I exercised control this trip. Those I did buy will always have a special place in my heart and will bring back fond memories of our vacation.
