On My Radar: Mother’s Day 2017

This mother’s day, my perfect day would include rest, rest and more rest! I dream of a day where I do absolutely nothing for anyone else or myself for that matter (well, I guess I can manage to shower myself 😉 but that’s about it). I just want to put my feet up and have some much needed ‘Me’ time sprinkled with a little pampering and spoiling from my fam, of course. Hopefully, I’ll be binge watching classic movies while indulging in delicious treats and drinking fantastic wine!

A little humor in honor of Mother’s Day…
