I'll preface this by saying that I generally avoid acknowledging "Hallmark" holidays like the plague.
A plague of sentimentally-driven consumer insanity.
However, this year I've finally found something that makes me want to celebrate Mother's Day: a (free!!) Ottawa Urban Wild Tour about wild food in conjunction with the annual Jane's Walk.
Seriously, someone pinch me.
Urban foraging + urban planning = extremely excited Sid. I'm losing my ever-loving nerdy mind.
I feel the Mother's Day connection is mere coincidence and my sweet husband would probably go along with this without much prompting but! nonetheless! I could not be happier that I've found a very personal way to spend a day celebrating my role in birthing and attempting to raise an entire human being.
Now let's just hope it doesn't fucking rain the whole time.
