Mother’s Day 2019

It’s Mother’s Day this weekend, and this is your friendly reminder to call your mother! Or maybe send her a nice card. Or buy her some flowers? She’s done a lot of nice things for you.

There are also a variety of teas and brunches on offer, and events for you to do with mom and spend some time together.

Check out some suggestions here.

Lots of local eateries will be hosting special Mother’s Day Brunches, like H2 (at the Westin) and Carderos. Read more here.


If you want to make breakfast for mom, might we suggest a Dutch Baby? Younger kids will the need the help of an older sibling or a parent for this one, though!

PS If my kiddo is reading, I love peonies.

Happy Mother’s Day, all!
