It has been over two years since my mother left this good earth, but not a day goes by for me without memories of her gentle spirit, her good nature and all the loving lessons she left behind. Just in time for Mother’s Day, I’m pleased to share with you my new book “Love Blooms in a Mother’s Heart: A Celebration of Motherhood”. While I wrote the book to honor the memory of my own mother, it really speaks to all moms of every generation. I selected my favorite quotations and sayings about mothers, and surrounded each one with my watercolor art inspired by the garden. I hope this book will touch your heart and bring joy to the special mom—or moms—in your life!
I will be celebrating Mother’s Day this year with my kids and family, and no doubt we will be reminiscing about all the treasured times we shared with my mother through the years. Wishing all of you Moms a relaxing Mother’s Day filled with love, laughter and the warmest of memories.
All My Best,
Events: Mother’s Day Brunch
Since Mother’s Day falls during such a beautiful time of year, why not treat Mom to brunch in the garden? Check out arboretums in your area, or entertain alfresco in your own backyard. Here are some wonderful options in our Philadelphia suburbs:
Take your mom to a delicious brunch at Longwood Gardens on Saturday, May 10th starting at 10am. They will have a Flute duo in The Conservatory from 12PM–3PM. Visit Longwood Gardens website for a full menu and for more information on how to buy tickets.
Here’s another option! Start your Mother’s Day right with a delicious brunch at the Morris Arboretum in their Compton Café. They have two seatings available—one at 10AM and one at 12PM. Afterwards, take a stroll as you enjoy all that spring has to offer at the Arboretum. Visit their website to preview the menu and for more information on how to purchase tickets.
Gifts: The Gift that Gives Back
This Mother’s Day, when you shower your mom with all the love she deserves, you can also honor artisans all over the world! The Root Collective’s mission is to tackle poverty, control costs and to give back. They have some beautiful gift ideas for Mother’s Day and you get to learn about the artisan who made the products. As a customer, you can select the TRC non-profit partner who will receive a 10% donation from your purchase. Find some special pieces and handmade gifts for mom while knowing your dollars are supporting makers in growing economies.
Product: Mother’s Day Prints
We’ve created a special selection of framed prints—some inspired by my new book, Love Blooms in a Mother’s Heart, and others with the theme of “home”—each with a hand lettered sentiment. They can be displayed individually or in groupings on a tabletop or mantel or hung on a wall. A great gift for moms of all ages!
Cards: Mother’s Day
This Mother’s Day, why not show Mom some love Kathy Davis style? While I have some cards distributed at large chains and various drug stores, you can be sure to find a great assortment of Kathy Davis cards in our Gallery in Horsham.
Charity: Single Mom Enterprises Inc.
As a former single mom while my own kids were young, I certainly recognize the importance of this organization. Single Mom Enterprises’ mission is to present single moms with opportunities to maximize success and reduce the stress of raising a family alone. They aim to provide financial, educational and emotional support. This foundation is devoted to providing the tools that moms will need for success, and to teach how to use those tools to yield the best results.
