Mom And Me -A Mother’s Day Post

Mother’s Day is a day we celebrate the woman or women in our lives that have raised us in one way or another. She may be the woman who birthed you, raised you, and/or just has been there to guide you in a motherly way throughout your life. In any instance, Mother's Day is a day for you to show them how much those mothers and mother figures mean to you!

Yes, I know this post is a little late. Like a whole week late but hey, life has been life-ing (I know that's not a word) the heck out of me lately and it's better late than never, right? So, thank you for your good graces. Now, let's get into my Mother's Day experience!

Ways Of Showing Love!

“Sometimes the simplest things make the most impact in a person's life.”

We all know that times are hard and for some, time and money have not been in abundance. But, We also know that at some point we need to put ourselves and our wants aside to show our loved ones they matter as well. I spoke with some of my friends which aren't many, to see what their plans were for their mom on mothers' day this year. One said, going to brunch at GW Fins. Another said, dinner at Emerald's. The last friend I spoke with said she was going to go and spend some time with her mom at home and maybe bring over some flowers. These were all great ideas and when I looked into the bottom line of all these ideas, it came down to time. Spending time.

It didn't matter if it was at a fancy restaurant or home. At or big age, all moms want time. So, I took that notion and I planned a nice day at Café Du Monde in New Orleans City Park.

Café Du Monde

Okay, so if you're from New Orleans or have visited New Orleans, or have even heard of New Orleans, you know Café Du Monde and if you haven't...what the heck?! have you been living under a rock? HA! But in all seriousness, this place is the BOMB!

A little backstory; Café Du Monde was founded in 1862 in the historic French Market. Its menu is simple, café au lait, black coffee, white and chocolate milk, cold drinks, or orange juice, and the main event, yummy beignets. Beignets are French-style doughnuts covered in powdered sugar. This place has so much history and has expanded over the years to malls and separate locations in New Orleans and surrounding areas.

The location we visited as I stated above was in City Park. This area was the perfect Mother's Day spot and it doesn't hurt that it's budget-friendly! There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, and free live music, which I'm sure was not a part of cafe du monde but just a local artist set up at the right time and place. But anyway, though I like the original location a lot because of all the history and its location in the quarters, I enjoyed the easy-going pace of this location. It seemed more family-oriented, which is great for my mom. It was the perfect location surrounded by old oak trees, greenery, and beautiful springtime flowers.

Our experience

Café Du Monde is one of the most New Orleans thing you can do! ”

Our Mother's Day experience at Café Du Monde was a great one. The parking was easy, free, and close to the café. The beignets and coffee were both lovely. The staff were so helpful and were quick to help with any request. And the music though I'm sure was not provided by the café was amazing. Very chill and laid back and not too loud so we could hear our conversation. There was a lady there with bubbles and other whatnots for children and the swing sets were not too far. This vibe made Mother's Day even more special. It was so good to see all the families and other mother-daughter duos enjoying the good food and weather! It was also a great feeling to be able to catch up with my mom and to hear her say how lovely of a time she had.

We will be back for more at another date and time and I will also recommend you all try this location. Even if it's with your date, family, or a self outing. It's a peaceful and loving environment we all need to experience. Café Du Monde is one of the most New Orleans things you can do!
