Mother’s Day is almost here, and I’ve been thinking a lot about what this holiday means to me. For the first 30 years of my life, it was always about my own Mama, a day to let her know how much all her daughters love and appreciate what a loving, kind, and generous role model she has been to all of us. Now that I have children of my own, it is a day I’m so proud of being a part of. I love being a Mom. I’ve said before that it’s my dream job and I really mean it. Yes- it’s hard most days lately, and sometimes I cry because of this, but I still love it. Being a Mama feels so fulfilling to me, and this year I feel really lucky for my little family.
Another reason I love this holiday, is because it seems to embody everything spring-like and beautiful. While Father’s Day in June reminds me of cookouts and sports, when I think of Mother’s Day it’s all flowers, brunch, and bright, beautiful things. I’m not sure what inspired these dainty little fruit tarts, but I think they are the perfect addition to a spring-y Mother’s Day spread….
