Mother’s Day totally snuck up on me this year! Between the craziness of the beginning of the year, our trip to Italy over Easter, and The Happily Eva After Collection’s Summer series on the horizon, my mind has been elsewhere. And I almost completely forgot that my most favorite holiday of the year is upon us! The day to celebrate MOTHERHOOD! It’s like the Superbowl for Moms. LOL. I feel like every day should be Mother’s Day since I truly feel that women make the world go ’round…but having a special day of the year I’ll at least settle for. Mother’s Day is also a day that I like to reflect on what I’ve learned from my friends and family member who are Moms. While every person parents differently (which is one of the strengths and wonders of parenthood itself) I always find myself gathering inspiration and strength from people around me for my own Motherhood journey. I really feel that the best way to get to know ourselves as Mothers is to really genuinely reflect on how others parent. I find that soaking in what makes my Mom Friends unique as women and as moms helps me to notice who I want to be in that role, and what’s special about how I do it. Not in all similar ways, but in different ways as well.
Another thing I want to say as we head into Mother’s Day is that I deeply recognize how painful this time of year can be for some. Whether it’s because of a woman’s personal journey filled with roadblocks towards becoming a Mother, the experience of pregnancy losses or the death of a child, or even being separated from one’s own Mother through alienation or death…these are all things that can bring such pain on this day. Even for women who have reasons to celebrate Mother’s Day…they may also have hidden or deeper reasons why the day is mournful, too. I want to extend a huge hug and a lot of love to anybody struggling with the lead-up to Mother’s Day this year. Please take time to take care of YOU.
For Mother’s Day, I always share a Gift Guide…and it’s usually my favorite Gift Guide of the year. And filled with all MY dream gifts! LOL. I hope you love this year’s as much as I do. I’m excited to not only shop from it…but to hopefully be gifted from it as well! And to any Mamas out there who want to Treat Yoself: look no further! I’ve got you covered. Let me know which ones are your favorites.
