As I get older, I realize more and more that holidays and birthdays aren’t about the day itself, they are about the celebration, the traditions, and the company. Do you feel this way as well? It became particularly clear for me on Christmas 2008, when the snows made traveling particularly dicey, and many people chose to celebrate Christmas a couple of days after the official day.
On Mother’s Day this year, my parents went to a soccer match. The following weekend, I had a lovely work weekend retreat of sorts. So two weeks later, we celebrated Mother’s Day. And it was lovely.
One of the traditions we started last year was to have Matt’s currant scones, yogurt, and fresh fruit. Yum.
I hope you’re having a lovely weekend.
