As my first mother’s day approaches, Eric keeps asking me what I’d like to do for Mother’s Day and my mind goes blank. First of all, I can’t believe that it’s May because I’ll be going through two major milestones: 1) celebrating my first Mother’s Day and 2) turning the big 3-0! So wrapping my head around the fact that I’m a mom and I get to celebrate this special day is a bit overwhelming – in a good way. One thing I know, I don’t want to do anything over the top. The simpler the better in my eyes. So having Eric and Jackson cook me breakfast and going for a walk around our city is how we’ll be spending this weekend.
When this package from Simone LeBlanc came to my door, my heart went a flutter. As a new mom herself, Simone knew exactly what any mom would love. Her custom gift boxes are stunning and this one in particular is all about love and pampering. So after our family walk around the city, I’ll be enjoying a little slice of heaven thanks to Simone.
Each gift I have received from Simone tells a beautiful story. When I opened the box there was a quote that read, ” The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The women existed but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” This rings so true to my heart because when you become a mother you don’t really know what you are doing but with every stage of your child you figure it out, you don’t quite know how, but you just do. I feel incredibly lucky to have such an amazing group of moms that have held my hand along the way.
If you are looking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift for your mom, I highly recommend going over to Simone’s shop. It’s not too late to pop one in the mail to your mama. It’s a gift she will cherish forever.
