PSA: Mother's Day is coming up, which means you'll need a Mother's Day Instagram post just as epic as she is. Whether you're balling on a budget gift-wise or you think she's more of a rosé and cupcakes kind of lady, there's no better way to show her (and everyone else) how much you appreciate her than posting a killer pic on Insta (especially if you caption it with a funny quote!). I mean, if you don't post on IG, did it even happen?

From a cheesy throwback to a classic pic from your most recent family vacay, choosing the perfect photo to post shouldn't be that difficult. But finding the right words to say to mom? That's a tough one. What do you say to the woman who would do anything for you? My advice: Keep it short, simple, and a little cheeky. I've already done the hard part for you, so save yourself the headache, sit back with your glass (or two!) of wine, and use these quotes—from funny to sentimental—as inspo for your epic Mother's Day Instagram post.
