I Never Get to Celebrate Mother's Day With My Mum — Here's How I Make Her Feel Special
I moved out of my parents' house when I graduated high school and I've never been back. I went to school out of state, then moved across the country, and then moved to yet another state. In the past 15 years since I left home, I've probably spent two Mother's Days with my mum, unfortunately. It's hard for us because we're so close, but living so far away from each other just makes it hard to be together all that often. We talk often and I love to buy her things and we make the most of it every time we're together. It's tough, though, when you can't spend a holiday dedicated to moms with your own mum. But living this for so many years has made me get creative with celebrating my mum, so these are eight of my go-to tips for celebrating Mother's Day when you can't be with your mum.
