She is more kind, more generous, and more patient than anyone I know. I often wish I had inherited more of these traits.
She brought me cheese in a lunch box on an airplane.
She’s right about (almost) everything (even when I won’t admit it until years later).
She sends me presents for every holiday, and sometimes just for Tuesdays. Usually these presents have a theme like “miniature things” or “things that come from the drug store” or “things to put on the blog.”
I tell her everything because she is truly my best friend and I have more fun with her than with anyone else.
So on Mothers’ Day, I can never seem to find anything quite good enough for my mother. I sent her some cute decorative things for her house, but to fill out the box, I decided I would make her something. I really wanted to send her Nanaimo bars because she loves them and they’ve become somewhat hard to find. However, since they are unbaked and made with heavy cream, I was afraid they wouldn’t ship very well.
Instead, I went with my second, third, and fourth choices and made peanut butter chocolate chip brownies two different ways, chocolate chip banana bread, and the best part, brown butter cookies with toffee and chocolate. You’ll hear more about these in the days to come.
For now I just wanted to say Happy Mothers’ Day to all the mothers reading this. I hope you all know how much you are appreciated and loved.
