The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children.Elaine Heffner
It’s safe to say that moms know a lot about life. They create life, they teach us the rules of life, and they watch life unfold as we grow and transform. But sometimes moms are so invested in our lives that they forget to enjoy the art of living themselves.
Does that sound like you or a mom you know? If so, let’s help mom reconnect with the art of living this Mother’s Day!
Eat. Drink. Work. Play. is all about the art of living and living a life explored. So, in this Mother’s Day edition of our Essentials, we have gathered unique gifts to do just that: bring a little more fun, whimsy, and curiosity into the lives of the moms you love. Let’s shop!
