After a year into social distancing, we’ve learned plenty of creative ways to remain connected. Mother’s Day this year is no different. It may seem counter-intuitive, but the pandemic and lock downs can make our Mother’s Day celebrations even more meaningful than in previous years. We were reminded of how important it is to stay connected with those we love.
Picking out the right Mother’s Day gift doesn’t have to be stressful. If you don’t have a budget for gifts right now, there is nothing better than some screen-time and a personal hand-written card to mom. It truly is the thought that counts, after all. To help out, I’ve put together a list gift of ideas to get for your mom (and yourself).
My toddler child is growing up so quickly! That’s why my husband and I want to capture our daughter’s every moment because we know that this special stage of their lives won’t last forever. We know how fleeting childhood can be. One moment our babies are learning to walk, then the next they’re off to college!
FOR THE HOME
I Remember My Life Before my baby, But I Can’t Imagine Life Without Her.
I’ve said this many times before, there is nothing else quite like motherhood. It’s one of the world’s toughest jobs, but also the most rewarding. Becoming a new mother has been a wonderful journey. That doesn’t mean it’s not difficult. I’ve got a whole lot of emotion going on in my house at all times, and there are so many days when I feel like I’ve used an incredible amount of emotional energy…and it’s only 9 am in the morning. I do feel exhausted sometimes, but there is never a moment when I’m not thinking that being a mom is the best feeling in the whole world.
