This weekend being Mother’s Day, we couldn’t let it pass by without acknowledging the special ladies in our lives.

Mother’s Day is not just a day for Moms (though it is primarily that). It is a day to celebrate womanhood, to honor the influence of women in society. The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States. It became a national holiday in 1914. Traditionally, members of individual families offer gifts in remembrance of their mothers or maternal figures on this day.

Flowers are by far the most popular gift for Mother’s Day. A flower itself can be seen as a symbol of women. Beautiful, strong, yet delicate. Flowers are a beautiful gesture of love and appreciation. They are nature at its most sentimental. So maybe it’s not necessarily the flowers that she adores, but the sentiment of the person giving them to her.

When asked about Moms, one of our loyal fans said it best, “Moms: they are our back bone; they are executive chefs; they are our personal hairstylist; and cheerleading team. Moms are booboo kissers and personal doctors.  Moms are the ones who keep the family in check…”

Women and especially Moms wear a lot of hats! So on May 12th, it’s hats off to our Moms. For everything they contribute every day, 24/7, all year long.
