Do you know what I love about this time of year? All the e-mails I receive from various stores reminding me of all the ways to "Pamper Mom" this Mother's Day.
I guess these retailers are onto the fact that Mom usually buys her own Mother's Day gifts -so I'm bombarded with special offers on spa treatments, perfumes, jewelry and clothing.
Mother's Day week is always a big week for me, because my birthday is on the 12th. So I get all my special gifts and pampering (in theory) at the same time of the year, every year.
My Mother's Day tradition? Planting flowers. I like to buy perennials, or flowering bushes and plant them on Mother's Day. Then I can look at the flowers and remember planting them with my daughters. When my mom lived local we used to do it together.
How about you? Do you have any special Mother's Day traditions?
