We’ve always enjoyed When Pigs Fly Bakery in Freeport. Where else can a family stuff their faces with generous samples of artisan breads, decadent cookies, and moist bread pudding cakes?

Given our devotion to the bakery, the team—which also included Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt M, and Uncle J—was curious to try When Pigs Fly Wood-Fired Pizzeria in York. From the outside, the restaurant looks like a golf club. There’s a lush green lawn, ample parking, and a beautiful new building with windows all around. We were thrilled to learn the company store and bakery is attached to the restaurant. So smart! If you have to wait for a table, you can always shop and sample the delicious breads and baked goods.

MP will admit it, she loves Mother’s Day. It’s like having a birthday all over again. She’s treated to breakfast in the morning, homemade cards from the kids, and the family road trip of her choice.

Sometimes, if she’s been an especially good Mom, there might be a small gift waiting for her at the kitchen table. There are a few beautiful items that are on her wish list this year. Her dream gift is a bag from Michelle Rose of Minka in Kennebunkport. MP has long coveted Michelle’s artfully designed leather handbag, but now Minka is offering a sleek looking shopper, too.
