It has been years since I have lived in the same state as my mother. My jobby job is also not very forgiving around these types of holidays, so my mother's days are generally uneventful and filled with work. This year was different in an unexpected way.
Ashley was trying to some up with something she wanted to do with her daughter and her mother to celebrate the day. I was giving her ideas but we were just coming up with blanks. Then I offered to cook them all a brunch before I went to work. They took me up on the offer and I hosted my first mother's day brunch.
I made pancakes, both blueberry and cinnamon currant, topped with maple syrup and home fries on the side. I severed a strawberry banana smoothie and the remaining blueberries on the side. It was a fun time and the first time I have spend quality time with Ashley's mother.
After bunch, they all filled out and I got ready for work. I tried to call my own mother a couple of times to no avail. I wish I was able to make her some brunch on mothers day too.
