"You can have another cookie honey -- they are healthy for you. We made them with eggs."
"Quirky reasoning, Mom," I thought.
But we did make them together (baking was one of our passions) and, it's true, they were made with eggs that we picked ourselves from the chicken house on the farm I grew up on. So they must have been healthy. And feeding people was one of the ways my mom showed love. Accepting a home-baked treat was worth all of the energy, thought and love that went into it. (And need I say she always looked effortlessly pulled together, even when baking?)
Moms are all about love, and this month, young or old, earth mother or rocker chick, moms everywhere get a well-deserved day to celebrate who they are. Whether you are a mom yourself, or looking for that special gift for the mom in your life, do it in style.

The list of responsibilities is long but it's nice to look good doing all of it. Easy basics are great for shuttling the kids to school, perfect for your mid-morning coffee or yoga class, and versatile enough for work meetings. This micromodal/silk flutter cardigan accomplishes volumes in just one easy piece. Layered over anything, at any age, it looks great. And it's also a perfect piece for the mom-to-be.
