Mother's Day 2018

May is a special time of year. We see hopeful gardeners prepare their

vegetable beds for new growth. Children, parents and teachers

everywhere can feel summer approaching - for many this means a

graduation ceremony is in order. And, maybe the sweetest part of the

month is celebrating the amazing women in our lives that we call

Mothers.

Mother’s Day has always been one of my most favorite holidays. As a

child I looked forward to the day each year that my dad took me and

my brothers to the gift shop in our small town so that we could pick the

perfect presents for my mom and grandma. They didn’t need or expect

shiny new things, but this tradition brought me such joy. Now that I’m

a mother myself I have the honor of sharing this holiday with the

women I adore. I reflect on the days that my children entered the

world and count each blessing motherhood has brought me.

I also look around at all the women in my life that have contributed to

my growth. My mother, grandmothers, a coach, aunts, midwives,

friends and so many others. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for their

lessons and love. As Mother’s Day approaches I thank all the mother

figures that so willingly give the best of themselves to us. If gift giving

is a joyful tradition in your home, as it remains in mine, Deer Creek

Farm has you covered. Recent additions to the store include beautiful

greeting cards and stationary, jewelry to suit any style, bath products to

pamper, and (as always) unique home decor finds that Deer Creek

Farm is known for.

Happy May,
