Celebrating Mothers

A few weeks ago I went home for the weekend to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom.  Our kitchen is absolutely gorgeous, so it is always a pleasure to do some serious cooking there.  I woke up early in the morning to make a special brunch celebrating my mom and I must say it turned out even better than I had anticipated.  I baked Blackberry Lemon Scones {the recipe calls for lavender, but I subbed lemon for it as ours was not quite in bloom yet}, an Asparagus Gruyere Tart, and threw together a simple fresh fruit salad with mint.  My gift was all based on our recent trip to Paris {photos from our adventures here, here, and here} and included the beautiful Ladurée Sucré cookbook, a lovely little glass decoupage tray {with the Eiffel Tower on it, of course}, and a framed photo of us in front of Notre Dame.  All in all it was the perfect way to celebrate the best mom in the world!
