Mother’s Day is once again upon us and I’m not afraid to say it: We deserve to be celebrated! Being a mom is the toughest job there is and we deserve a day off, or at least a meal prepared by someone other than us! Once again, in case you didn’t hear me the first time:
You are an amazing mom. You deserve to be celebrated. Every day!
Every family has different traditions, or is still sorting out what their traditions will be. My personal favorite, and admittedly a well-known go-to option is brunch. Maybe it’s the lure of coffee (or mimosas if that’s your thing) but a relaxing brunch with delicious food that I neither had to prepare nor clean up after, that sounds like heaven to me.
To help you out this Mother’s Day, here’s a list of our favorite brunch places in the Triangle. Did we miss a spot? Let us know!
