Mother’s Day with Nicole Letts, Founder of the Grandmillenial Shop

Caroline’s Cakes was founded by and named after my mother, Caroline. Having her as a mother, mentor, and role model was an invaluable experience for which I am so grateful and some of my fondest memories were spent with Caroline. 
With this sentiment in mind, and in honor of Mother’s Day, we’ve tapped some of our most inspiring friends and colleagues to share their favorite memories, traditions, and occasions with their moms. 
Read below, and celebrate these influential women alongside us.

What is one of your favorite traditions or memories with your mother?
When I was a kid, on random days of the week during the school year, my mom would check me out for us to have a day of fun together. We would go shopping or have lunch, just the two of us. It was always a surprise and never happened more than once or twice per school year, but when it did, it was such an awesome day!
What is something your mother always says/said? 
My mom wasn’t a big catchphrase person, but I do have particular memories of her telling me to always have fresh undergarments with me at all times…just in case! What is a tradition you are excited to carry on or one you're excited to create? I don’t have children, but I’ve tried to continue some of the traditions my mom made with us as kids with my husband. We have special foods on special days, and stockings are always filled with the best gifts at Christmas. We even exchange Easter baskets!
If I turn on ____ song, it immediately makes/made my mom want to kick up her heels.
Anything classic 70s or 80s from Earth, Wind, and Fire to Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine. 
We have to ask... what Caroline's Cake flavor would you love to celebrate Mother's Day with?
My mom’s favorite cake flavor is strawberry, so it would have to be that.
