Dominican Republic celebrates Independence Day just on their own day… February 27 However, sometimes there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, literally. They celebrate Mother’s Day but since they celebrate a different day than in the U.S. this could only mean one thing:
I’m not sure what I will do when we live abroad in the world in some place that doesn’t celebrate July 4th, Independence Day. I like that holiday. It is one of those magical rainbow type days when I can start drinking whole bottles of wine or jugs of frozen margaritas at way too early in the morning and no one
will can judge me because today is the 4th of July, god d^mn it! But, alas, I think it’d be pretty country-centric to think that anywhere else would want to celebrate my Independence Day so I’ll have to get over rather quickly that not everywhere will celebrate the holidays that I celebrate.
And what good is two days of presents when you don’t know what you want. So today, I’m writing for Wanderlust and Lipstick and sharing with you some totally fabulous gifts for the abroad Mom. But I gotta say, any mom would love these.
Don’t believe me, check ’em out… and let me know which two you want for Mother’s Day!
