For my family (and maybe yours) Mothers Day is best celebrated with brunch. Going to our favorite brunch spot on Mothers Day has been a tradition for my mom and me for years.

So this year show your mom how much you love her while at home, with homemade meals, presents, and, the best gift you can give her, your time.
Cinco De Mayo is a holiday that celebrates the Mexican Army’s underdog victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It’s a day usually reserved for big parties and large feasts of tacos and tamales. Yet, this Cinco De Mayo may look different than ones in the past. The COVID Pandemic has shut most of us into our homes, preventing large gatherings and the like. But Shelter in Place does not mean the fiesta has to wait. The day can now be celebrated on a smaller scale with those in your home. With your own mini fiesta, you can still commemorate the holiday with a good meal and some colorful, homemade decorations. In this time of crisis, a celebration of victory may be just what is needed to help us through.

Usually, this means crowds of people rallying for better environmental protection laws, groups volunteering to tend to our planet, and masses out enjoying natural parks, trials, and beaches.

There will be an end to this pandemic, and when it comes, our planet will still be here.

However, not all water bottles are the same. Plastic bottles are by far the most popular, but not the best option.

The world has recently been struck with an incredibly rapidly growing pandemic caused by the virus COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. The economy has been drastically impacted by the virus due to encouraged and enforced quarantines that have forced people to be out of work and resources.
