I’m lucky enough to live very close to my mom, and we go out to lunch almost everyday.
But Bob and I are heading to our Swedish house for almost a month, and Mom’s worried she’s going to really, really miss us. And when you’re 90, it can be hard to remember just when we’re coming back. So, I decided a little visual reminder might be good!
I got some adorable little bags and stickers at Scrapuccino’s.
I did the countdown and Bob punched holes.
I added a few notes here and there.
And then it was candy time!
I filled each bag with a piece of candy.
Then I added a little pink ribbon—Mom’s favorite color.
Luckily, I had an empty box from Christmas…
…and they fit perfectly!
I hope it helps the days go by a little faster.
