After losing my mom in 2008, Mother’s Day became another day to remember and celebrate her life. Although she has been gone for years, it still feels good to celebrate the time we had together and give thanks for the many sacrifices she made for me. I sometimes find myself wishing I had her here celebrate with me, especially after becoming a mom and understanding more about what she did for me while she was here! (Thanks, MOM!!!)
When I met my Mother-in-law, I got a whole new reason to celebrate Mother’s Day. My MIL (I call her mother-in-love) has been such an amazing blessing to my life bringing so much love and light. She creates beautiful memories with Harlowe and is always there to lend a hand when KW and I need someone by our side as we navigate the journey of parenthood together.
I love putting together packages to show loved ones I am thinking of them and find inspiration for gift ideas in too many places. This year, for Mother’s Day, I’m excited to send my MIL gifts to pamper from Thymes. I chose a delicious smelling lotion and scrub from the Lemongrass collection and a few goodies from the Aqua Coralline collection as well. This conditioning scrub is so soothing and leaves your skin luminous and fresh. I’m hoping to use it whenever I visit! (You’ve been warned, Jeri!)
^ Tulips never quit. They grow, even after they’ve been cut, making them the perfect flower to give to moms whose work is never done.
Who will you be celebrating this Mother’s Day? Why not pamper them with Thymes?! They will be offering my readers a free Fragrance Studio Sample Kit (a sample set of 15 fragrances) with any purchase of $25 or more (good luck choosing a fragrance… so many wonderful fragrances to choose from!) Use promo code MOMSDAY15.
Happy mother’s day to all of the amazing moms out there!
