What better way to celebrate the month of Moms, than by loving on them a little extra? Whether you are lucky enough to live near by them or not, they are always close at heart and only a phone call or Facetime away.
To give you a little Mom-ivation we’re featuring our favorite mamas and sharing what we think make ours the MOST special. Especially in times when physical contact is currently frowned upon, Mamas out there need a little extra love, so hopefully this will inspire you to get out there to do the same – spread the Mama-love far and wide!
Here’s some ideas on what you can do to share some love for one’s you love:
- Send them a funny meme that makes you smile that you find on social media
- Pickup a card next time you’re at the store (or use some stationery you find around the house) and send them a note snail-mail style
- Randomly FaceTime them… they maybe surprised, but in the best way
- Make one of their recipes and text them a photo of your creation (good or bad… Nailed it!)
- Email them a photo of the last time you were together and mention how much it meant to you
Breah’s Mama – Leslie
Tell us a little bit about you growing up.
I am one of four girls that grew up in a rural area on Vancouver Island. We lived on a beautiful hobby farm. We were self-sufficient growing most of our fruits and vegetables and had lots of animals (sheep, a goat, chickens, ducks, horses, a pony, dogs, cats and lots of other small critters) that we tended to. It was a lot of fun, responsibility and, of course, a lot of work. My parents were talented in all they touched – from gardening, designing structures, animal enclosures, fences, building a dock, maintaining the pump house for the well, sewing, knitting, cooking, canning, baking and sharing all they could with the limited time they had with the four of us. Lots of life’s lessons from watching a foal being born or the baby chicks and puppies enter the world…we all learned to be independent, strong and to be hard workers. We all grew up to love animals, enjoy nature and have a passion for traveling the world.
What is one thing you wished you learned 27 years ago, before Breah was born?
Firstly how important family is and secondly that life continues to accelerate. Love bubbles really do happen. Breah was a huge one that continues to grow and even had one when Abbee (our 14-year old Silky Terrier) joined us.
