Things my Mom taught me

that I more or less blatantly ignore :)

She taught me that extravagance is unnecessary. Not to be wasteful. That a small gesture can go a long way. Which is why on her birthday and Christmas (not usually Mother’s Day because I’m out of ideas and my brain’s still recouping) I try to wrap everything I get her in as much wrapping paper as I can fit around them. And I try to buy new wrapping paper every time!

This year I chose a green bag, because Mom’s favorite color is green. And because one of my favorite colors is lime green. And because we recycle bags like we have a gift bag recycling business so I might as well pick out something I like because I’ll probably get it back again, eventually.

I filled that bag with yellow!

But before it was yellow, it was multi-colored tissue paper! Oh, the extravagance!

I HAVE to be honest. There looks like a lot of gifts here but there really isn’t. I wrapped everything individually so it would look like more!

Who cares, anyway? This is my MOM! She’s always (sometimes, hahaha) really supportive, and she helps me a lot, she does a lot for me, I love her, and I don’t get her things very often (because she get’s mad when I “waste” my money). She DESERVES to have a nice birthday and get nice gifts!
