Two Many Options for Mother's Day

I'm not sure what I will do when we live abroad in the world in some place that doesn't celebrate July 4th, Independence Day. I like that holiday. It is one of those magical rainbow type days when I can start drinking whole bottles of wine or jugs of frozen margaritas at way too early in the morning and no one will can judge me because today is the 4th of July, god d^mn it! But, alas, I think it'd be pretty country-centric to think that anywhere else would want to celebrate my Independence Day so I'll have to get over rather quickly that not everywhere will celebrate the holidays that I celebrate.

Dominican Republic celebrates Independence Day just on their own day... February 27 However, sometimes there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, literally. They celebrate Mother's Day but since they celebrate a different day than in the U.S. this could only mean one thing:


And what good is two days of presents when you don't know what you want. So today, I'm writing for Wanderlust and Lipstick and sharing with you some totally fabulous gifts for the abroad Mom. But I gotta say, any mom would love these.

 Don't believe me, check 'em out... and let me know which two you want for Mother's Day!

  1. What fun! I am so curious to see what your life is like! Thanks for sharing on SITS. Your title caught my eye (the abroad part). I am also a former teacher and now a freelance writer at home with my girls. I lived abroad for 7 years but never as a mother... I wonder what that would have been like for me so hence my curiosity!
    Glad you write!

    1. We have twinkie-type lives, huh? Former teacher, abroad lived people, writers, stay at home moms... Living abroad with children is all i know so it I always wonder what it would have been like living abroad without kids. thanks for reading and I hope you'll journey again through some of our adventures!
