Yes it’s lovely to spend Mother’s Day with the family, but you know what’s even better? Yes, you guessed it, spending it without the kids (can you say “me time”?). We’ve gathered up some great outings you can take with friends, your own mom or by yourself. Think yoga and brunch, wine tasting, storytelling by moms, neighbourhood beauty socials, or a refreshing afternoon of mom-related support and advice.
