Treat yo momma.

Mother’s Day has always brought everyone together to celebrate two very special women: my mother and my grandmother. It was our ritual to dine at a local, french bistro on decadent eggs benedict with copious amounts of mimosas. We all knew the couch and sweat pants were awaiting at home!
Now, I look back as a mother and realize that Mother’s Day is so much more than brunch and bouquets of flowers. It’s about leadership. It’s about reflecting on the role models our moms were to us and how they empowered us to become the women we are today. I see it often with my own mother and my children. Not a visit goes by where she doesn’t envelope their tiny faces in her hands and remind them how beautiful they are and that they can, indeed, be anything they want to be in life. It’s my mother’s soft encouragement and contagious laugh that pushed me to try new things, sometimes fail, and then pick myself up again. If I told her I wanted to start a babysitting business; her response was always simple, “Do it!” When I told her I wanted to start my own social media business; her response was consistent, “Well, why not...you obviously know what you’re doing.”
This year I wanted to gift my mother something that sparkled just like her personality. A radiant gift that mimicked her infectious laugh. And this year, I have a gift for my dear readers, too. A giveaway of sorts. You see, I have been asked by JTV to treat my momma and all the special women out there something extra sparkly and well deserved. If you’ve never visited the JTV Mother’s Day Jewelry Gifts page on their website for gifting ideas...this is the time!
It’s examples like these that are ingrained in my brain as we raise two little girls to become fierce females in the future. Leaders, no less. (If I have my way, ha ha)
This year I’ve gifted my mother these stunners on her special day. Turns out we will be twinsies and one lucky reader will match us! These studded beauties have upped my daily uniform significantly. Dare I say they’re everyday studs!
Ready to win a set of your own? Help make mom feel as special as she’s made you feel all these years. Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours!
