As a mom, I totally get it now. Mother's Day, simply put, rocks. Better than birthdays or even Christmas, Mother's Day salutes the hardest and most rewarding job ever, a special sorority celebrated annually during the height of spring bloom. And if you're lucky like me and live in Maine, today might have included a formal brunch with a jazz quartet, white glove service, a view of the water and lobster on your eggs at the Black Point Inn in Scarborough. Will's baby shower was there, too, and I believe we have just birthed our Mother's Day tradition (under the same ownership as Migis Lodge, the Inn at Ocean's Edge and now the Colony Hotel, too, the inn and its partner sites are poised to be the wedding powerhouse in the area. All locations would be great for rehearsal dinners, too, fyi!). A post brunch walk on the beach with my parents and Dakota and time to explore the inn's beautiful gardens and paths sealed the deal, and we overheard others saying the same.
Happy Mother's Day, mom, and to all the moms out there! We love you!
