Mother's Day <3

First off, happy Mother's Day to the most amazing, wonderful, caring, just BOSSEST mom EVER!!! I'm sooo thankful for her!! 

Okay, I thought I'd look into the history of Mother's Day and what it's origin was/is. Here's what I came up with!!:) 

The modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make "Mother's Day" a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis' holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother's day.

Anyway!! I am sooo blessed to be the daughter of an amazing mom!!! <3 

I hope all your moms had an amazing day as well!!
