Our moms have always been there for us when we needed them the most – a hug and a kiss when you get a bad grade, chicken noodle soup when you’re sick and encouraging words when things just don’t seem to go your way. They do a lot for us, and one day out of the year, it’s our turn to do something nice for our moms – Mother’s Day. Shower your mom with a day of special treats – relaxing massages, shopping sprees and delicious eats. First, start with brunch; you can never go wrong with eggs Benedict and a bloody mary. Check out these Atlanta brunch spots for a special treat for your mom.
