It goes without saying that being a mom is one of the toughest, most rewarding jobs out there and not a day goes by where we aren’t grateful for all the hard work and sacrifices that moms across the world make for their families. Mother’s Day is a special chance (but c’mon… every day is a new opportunity!) to say “THANK YOU MOM”.
Whether it’s a weekend with the whole family or just a girls trip, here’s some activities you can do in #DTJax with your mom to make her feel special this mothers day weekend!
