Mother’s Day Cards: Haikus from Insta-Moms

A sweet, simple idea turned into a meaningful exercise: reading—really taking in—our favorite moms’ Instagram captions. Some write shorter, others pen little novels. Everyone has their own depth.

We strung some of our favorite lines together to make patchwork haikus. And with Mother’s Day cards due in the mail any day now, we wanted to share the inspiration.
