Here are three amazing activities to do in Chicago this Mother’s Day.

Today, I just wanted to take this opportunity to greet each and every mom in your world in honor of Mother’s Day! Motherhood is a beautiful gift and opportunity. Personally, I’m thankful for my two kids, John Carlos and Kayla, for letting me be their mom. If you’re looking for fun Mother’s Day activities in Chicago that aren’t brunch, here are some of my favorite options:

1. Mother’s Day Flower Arrangement Workshop. This is hosted by the Japanese Cultural Center and Yuko Inoue Darcy. It’s in Lincoln Park, so check it out if you can.

2. Make It and Take It serving tray. This is hosted by Rebuilding Exchange, and their mission is to create a market for reclaimed building materials.

3. Candlelight Yoga for bereaved mothers. This is hosted by Star Legacy and Pulling Down the Moon. I happened to attend the Pulling Down the Moon support group when I had some issues with fertility, and I think they’re really wonderful.

I hope you enjoy one of these events this Mother’s Day. Finally, I want to thank the wonderful mothers in my life. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Call or email me with any questions; Happy Mother’s Day!
