Celebrate Mother's Day with Famous Moms from Art and Literature

With Mother's Day quickly approaching (it's on Sunday if you still haven't done any planning!), I've been contemplating many things. Many of you know that I am a mother through adoption. I've shared on my social media (and you can read more and donate to a cause I'm supporting for Mother's Day through helpusadopt.org here).

I wanted to share something else meaningful on my blog this week. As many of you know, my mother is an artist (check out her work here!)  and not only do I work in a university, but I'm a writer, avid reader, and continuous student of literature.

Invaluable has shared an amazing collection of Mothers in Art and Literature on their website and it's nothing short of inspiring. Make sure to read their post, and learn a little bit more about some famous moms in the history of art and literature, and pass it on to the mothers you know!  The images and the quote compilations are stunning, so make sure to check them out below!

Some of my favorite authors like Maya Angelou and Sylvia Plath made the cut--I'd love to hear which of the images spoke the most to you!
