Mother’s Day is right around the corner and it’s got us thinking about all things warm, caring, and good. And there are few things more “mom’esque” than a home cooked meal prepared by her. While there are plenty of places other than a kitchen where a woman “belongs,” there’s nothing wrong with mom stepping in front of the oven and sharing something delicious and delightful with the people she loves.
If you’re mother is someone who cares for the people around her, it’s important that you show how much you appreciate her. And if one of the ways mom shares her love is by creating home cooked meals, then getting her a beautiful new apron is the perfect way of showing your gratitude!
This week we are excited to help you find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. We’ve got a 50% off apron sale going on! Is your mom a little more on the sweet and sensitive side while in the kitchen?

The boy next door took three steps away from his bedroom window, then moved forward again. He knew he shouldn’t be looking. He was supposed to be studying. High School graduation was in a few weeks and he still needed to pass his last few exams if he hoped to wear that cap and gown. And yet here he was, peering from behind his plain blue curtains, hoping to catch one more glimpse of Mrs. Smith. His window had a perfect view into her kitchen and it was about this time of day that she would begin preparing dinner. Steam would rise from the stovetop like delicate fingers yearning to touch. Heat would billow from the oven like the heat under his skin. But his favorite thing to watch, by far, was her mixing a bowl of soft, supple batter. With the bowl clutched firmly against her chest, her apron clinging to her skin, she’d move the spoon vigorously and repeatedly. He would dream of those hands at night. His heart tripped when he saw her reach into the cupboard, pull out a bowl, and remove a large spoon from a drawer. And just as she started to pour some flour into the bowl he watched her glance over her shoulder. Though he couldn’t be positive that she was looking at him, he still caught his breath as she quickly winked in his direction.
