I appreciate my mom and always tell her how much I love her on Mother’s Day. However, it always felt like another holiday. As I approach my first Mother’s Day, I get it. This is more than just a day. Mother’s Day means more to me than my birthday. I feel like I’ve earned it. My 8-month-old Rex is my everything, and while I do try to maintain my identity, the fact is, my world revolves around him, and I work hard to be the best mom I can be.
So when I got to thinking about my annual Mother’s Day post and what gifts I would recommend, things felt different. A candle, spa day or jewelry are always welcome. (A costume necklace is on my wanted list. If it’s on yours too, a few designers to check out are Dannijo, Kate Spade, Vera Wang and Stella & Dot). That said, my proposal for this year is to also write your mom a heartfelt letter. I love presents, but they aren’t wrapped in feelings. I look forward to the day when Rex can express his sentiments to me on this special day. In the meantime, I’ll let my hubby write the mushy stuff for the both of them.
Happy Mother’s Day!
