Mother’s Day

By Josselyn Thornton

Making your mother happy seems to be the one thing that, no matter the person, makes one feel the most accomplished. She gave you life, helped you through every awkward stage, and maybe even was the cause of some, and is the one person who will never leave your side (excluding Dads, but they get a different day). And what we don’t realize is the best gift in the world isn’t the one you wrap up.

So this Mother’s day, instead of looking through the top 10 gifts for mom, take her out to dinner, and give her quality time. Because at the end of the day, the thing we seem to have the least of is time. A gift is great, but sitting down, having a conversation, and maybe a drink or two, will be what she remembers.

Here’s a list of restaurants in the DC metropolitan area to take Mom to this Mother’s day:
