for the anderson household, it is not mothers day until you go to the flower shop. so that is exactly what we did over the weekend (this year laurel was out of town, we missed her a ton!) . my mom has a great green thumb. every year, she does landscaping, plants a flower garden, and somehow fits time in for a veggie garden. and for as long as i can remember, she always wants flowers (to plant) for mothers day. so that is exactly what we get her! as we have gotten older (and have allowed her to sleep in), we have started making a tradition that we go to the flower shop together on mothers day. we get to go in, see all of the beautiful flowers, and choose what types of plants we will fill our yard with.
and as the years have passed my mom's green thumb has rubbed off on me, and i have started gardening! this makes going to the flower shop even more enjoyable because i then too pick out what i will see blooming in my yard for the year.
... and though we may love going to the flower shop on mothers day, another mother's day tradition we may love even more is cold stone;)
what did you do for mothers day? do you have any fun traditions?
