LooHoo staff shares their favorite Mother’s Day with the ones they love.
“I love having a big breakfast at home lovingly prepared by Scott and Graham then going for a hike or having some outdoor time to spend in the yard. Planting flowers and veggies and herbs. Playing baseball and just having a quiet day at home together.”
—Cyndi Prince, LooHoo proprietress
“A cherished Mother's Day tradition in our home is going to our local greenhouse, Lausier Family Gardens, and picking out a perennial to plant—either a bush or flower. I have a yard that blooms every spring with a variety of flowers from tulips and daffodils to rhododendrons and azaleas, anything hearty that blooms in May on Peaks Island here in Maine. I love giving and receiving gifts that come back every year. Flowers are the perfect choice. I have made many bouquets to gift forward from our own plantings.”
—Heather Wasklewicz, marketing maven
“Family time—that’s all I ask for every year. No electronics, no errands, no laundry or cleaning. We sleep in, splash in the pool, play board games and, if we have time, we watch one of my favorite classics like “The Sound of Music. Meals are prepared by my husband and Emery and Nolan help with the clean up.”
—Cathy Risling, writer & editor extraordinaire
