The MLT Guide to Mother's Day

It fast approaches. The day we shower the one who sacrificed so much to be there for us with love and adoration. In honor of the special ladies we pay tribute to on this important holiday, we made our Monday Breakfast Series a little special.

The long and sleepless nights. 
The nights she stayed in (when she just wanted to go out). 
The examples she set.
The recipes she passed along.
All the dinners, breakfast, lunches, birthday parties.
All the gifts and special tokens of love.
All the love in her heart.

Mom. My heart feels warm just thinking of mine. She taught me a lot... more than I can possibly recall. I'll always remember how she taught me to respect other people and their property, work hard and from the heart or don't work at all, and to be honest, despite how hard it is. Be brave and speak truthfully. She taught me modesty, in dress and in demeanor. She taught me to love God. She showed strength, when many around her doubted her and found fault in her. She taught me grace, despite how badly she wanted to just give in and always say what was on her mind. She is the reason I am who I am. She gave me life and that alone deserves my endless gratitude.

If you don't have a mother of your own to thank, thank the women around you who are mothers or nurturers in their own right... or honor yourself. Buy yourself a special something and eat a fancy meal. You deserve it. They deserve it. She deserves it. Many of my girlfriends exhibit the same sort of love, hard work and strength I saw my own mother share with me and it makes me adore these women even more. To live with love and grace takes practice, an open heart, and trust. I love the women in my life who exemplify this kind of diligent living.

In celebration of this coming holiday, I put together a guide. I have some favorite small brands that I have included in this round-up that I can't wait to share with you. These items are great ideas for what to get mom this year and I've even included some recipe inspiration!

Soul Sunday is a vegan and small-batch apothecary out of Massachusetts. Ingredients matter so we want to give mom the best her skin can have. Pictured above is Soul Sunday's ricewash facial cleanser, multi-task body + shave oil, bougie facial oil, cool down sugar scrub, and homestay aromatherapy roller.

We decided to prepare Eggs en Cocotte with mushrooms and spring onions as a savory brunch item for mom. Our favorite ingredient in the eggs? Wine. It gave the dish such a strong, bold flavor.

Preparing coffee from start to finish is a delicious experience for the senses - grinding the beans, boiling the water, blooming your coffee grounds, and taking great care to produce the perfect cup. Rebecca is seen here wearing Consider The Wldflwr's bronze bar necklace.

After hours of cooking and cleaning, an aromatic scrub makes a world of difference for tired skin. Soul Sunday's cool down sugar scrub is sure to brighten things up... and it smells scrumptious.

Our eggs en cocotte paired beautifully with fresh baguette. Wanting to treat mom even more, we prepared a lemon curd and rosemary cake inspired by recipes we found online. Add a blood orange bellini for good measure and this breakfast is heaven.

We had such fun putting together this special morning for mom and I hope that you put together something really meaningful for whoever the special lady is in your life. People deserve to be celebrated, no matter how big or small their accomplishments are. I hope that some of these gift and recipe ideas help you create the picture perfect day for the one you love.

Thank you to Rebecca of A Daily Something for modeling and styling this shoot and a huge thank you to my intern Rowan for assisting and doing lots of the baking. Thank you to the brands - Soul Sunday, Facture Goods, Consider the Wldflwrs - for creating such wonderful product that I get excited about sharing with my followers and friends.
