Ain’t no hood like Motherhood. The gang initiation we went through was WILD. Today is our day to treat ourselves and invest in some serious self care by tapping into the things WE love to do and be around the people we have a good time with.
When you go through this list, do me a favor and pick what YOU (or the Mom you’re thinking of) would love– NOT what’s best for everyone else’s schedule like you normally do. The world will not fall apart if MAMA gets a day to rest, let loose, and have a great day. You deserve this- now go have FUN!
Mom’s get in FREE for Mother’s Day at Leu Gardens in Winter Park. Last year while my mom was visiting we went and it could not have been more perfect. The gardens are very stroller friendly, many shaded trails, and plenty of beautiful backdrops for some Mommy & Me photos. We’re a big fan! 3yrs old & under are always FREE! Here’s the link to more information: Leu Gardens Mother’s Day Special

Three Mother’s Day Brunches to consider:
- I highly recommend the Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet at the Alfond Inn located in Winter Park. We went as a family for Easter and it was so well managed. The perfect setting for the family, girlfriends, or taking mom or grandma out. Located very close to Winter Park’s beautiful park to take a stroll before or after brunch. Brunch includes free valet parking, a complimentary mimosa, & beautiful live music by a pianist (which I love because it’s prominent enough to fill the room with beautiful music, but quiet enough to have easy conversation with the person across the table). Here is the LINK: Alfond Inn Mother’s Day Brunch
2. Want to take a trip down memory lane with Fred Astaire & Audrey Hepburn? This brunch also includes a show! Funny Face (1957) will be featured while you enjoy a delicious buffet and laugh to your heart’s content at the Enzian Theater. There is also a VIP option that includes a gift for mom & a Mimosa bar! Here is the LINK: Funny Face Brunch
3. For the mom that rocks- The Hard Rock Cafe in Daytona which is hosting a special champagne Mother’s Day Brunch. Indoor & Outdoor seating will be available, and there will also be live entertainment from Les B Fine from 11-4pm. Must purchase tickets in advance. Kid’s under 5yrs are free! LINK: Hard Rock Brunch
Happy Mother’s Day from the bottom of my heart. You are AMAZING. You really are, and I hope you have an amazing Mother’s Day reflecting on your journey and feeling blessed when you think about where you are now. I know it can be SO hard mama, but there is nothing more important than what you’re doing now, and I’m proud of you. Now GO enjoy YOUR DAY!
Alright Mama, let’s hear from YOU! What are you doing this Mother’s Day?
