Hello again friends! How is everyone holding up these days? Even though our country is still experiencing some distress with Covid-19 lockdowns, we are forging on looking forward to brighter days that lie ahead! Here at our bed and breakfast, the Caldwell family has a rich history and the matriarchs in our family have always played a very important role throughout each generation. With Mother’s Day coming up next month, we wanted to give you some easy and thoughtful ideas on how you can honor and celebrate the special mother(s) in your life.
Ways to Celebrate Your Mother
Make a one-of-a-kind book of handwritten notes – In the day and age of email, texts and emojis, there is something special about receiving an actual handwritten note! Gather notes from other family members and compile for a memorable book for Mom
Shoot a video – Grab your phone and film short snippets of family members sharing messages of appreciation and favorite memories of times with Mom.
Pay it Forward – Did you mother love a certain area or a particular organization, ministry, or group? Consider donating to a place in her name! If she gave her time or resources to help others, continue volunteering or giving so her memory lives on.
Plant a special flower or tree – Get your hands dirty and honor your mother by planting a tree or flower that she loves. Every time you tend to it or walk by, you will think of her!
Take a road trip – Is your mother a storyteller? Are there places nearby that bring up great memories for her or that she loves to visit? Whether near or far, pile in the car and hit the road with her to visit places she grew up or that are special to her. You might even learn a thing or two as you go about her story and history.
Another idea is to treat your mother to a memorable getaway to the Hudson Valley and a stay at our elegant bed and breakfast. You can purchase a gift certificate today or book a future vacation with your whole family. Need help planning? Give us a call – we’d love to share more about our inn and this beautiful area!
