B.. What's your perfect Mother's Day 
ritual?

I Have always worked on Mother's Day, but before I leave to work my husband and my boys bring me breakfast to bed with a gift and a 
homemade card. This for me is priceless because my boys take their time to write me a note, it's a family ritual. Then I get ready for my busy day ahead, as a Florist owner Mother's 
Day is the second busiest day of the year. I enjoy my day filled with flowers and spreading floral love around my community. Making other mommies smile!

Commissioner.
B. What's your perfect Mother's 
Day ritual?

Although a spa day at the Lapis Fontainebleau is my favorite 
Mother's Day gift, I prefer to spend the day itself with my husband JB and our family.  Traditionally we celebrate with a luncheon at La Gorce with my 
mother-in-law Fabiola Dominguez.  
My favorite rituals always involve 
great meals!
C. What's one of your favorite 
Mother's Day memories?

One year, my sons Jake and Evan made the family breakfast of bagels and smoked salmon with delicious breakfast cheeses and fruits... they set the table with my fine china and flowers, and hand wrote little labels on everything!  It was adorable and I felt quite pampered!
 

My favorite ritual
always involves great 
food first priority.
