Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Sunday is Mother’s Day! If your mom is like mine, then her response to, “What would you like for Mother’s Day?” is something along the lines of, “Nothing! I don’t want you to spend your money on me.” And while that’s a nice sentiment (love you, mom!), it makes it really hard to find that perfect gift.

Until, the following spring when I inevitably repeat this awful cycle. Funny aside: the first time I ever ran a 5K, I noticed a cop on a motorcycle directly behind me which made me think I was dead last, so much…
