Ashley's Pastry Shop Baking BlogCelebrate Mom

It’s hard to imagine a world without moms. From the moment we’re born, moms play a significant role in our lives, making sure we’re fed, clothed, cared for and loved. As we grow, moms go from attending to our every physical need to helping us navigate emotional needs.

Moms work tirelessly on our behalf, making sure we’re happy and healthy. It’s only fair we dedicate one day to them to say thank you for everything they do for us over and over and over again. Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. It’s Sunday, May 13. Perhaps you already have plans to make your mom or wife or daughter feel special. We’d like to help you celebrate. Give us a call to place an order for mom’s favorite treat and we’ll make sure to have it ready to go.

As we got to thinking about Mother’s Day, we couldn’t help but think of all the ways moms make our days a little brighter. Here are 25 reasons moms deserve a special day:
