Thanks to the many generous local businesses that have contributed to this Mother’s Day Package! We love these local businesses and have hand-picked these knowing that moms in the greater Kalamazoo area will LOVE these. 



Motherhood is like a patchwork quilt, full of little moments that make up the entire journey. Those quilt squares are made of so many things: wiping the tears off of a tear stained face as they fall during their first bicycle ride, trying to contain our laughter as they attempt their first knock-knock joke, or watching them go off to school for the first time, whether that be preschool or college. These moments, when put together, form a beautiful blanket of memories that we will carry forever.

We want to celebrate the mothers in our community with a special Mother’s Day Package, just for mom! We’ll select one lucky mom as our winner of the Mother’s Day “Best Mom Moment” Giveaway.

To enter, complete the form at the bottom of this page and tell us your best mom moment, whether it be triumphant, heartbreaking, or will leave us in stitches!

Good luck and a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the great moms in our community!
