Mother’s Day is a week and a half away. My did that sneak up quickly this year! I feel extra sentimental about this Mother’s Day as I just became a mother of two, and will be celebrating the holiday with both of my boys. We’re going to mark the day with a casual little celebration at home. And I simply can’t wait to snuggle my Rowan and my Henry all day! Mother’s Day is such a wonderful excuse to celebrate the leading ladies in our lives, moms. So, let’s shower our favorite moms with extra love! I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what my mom would want as well as what mothers closer to my age would love to receive this year. As such, I’ve created my 2022 Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
Complete with fashion favorites, must-have accessories, gorgeous home items, kitchen necessities, inspired beauty products, and more. Cheers to pampering the best, hardest working women in the world and cheers to reminding them of just how grateful we are for all they do for us! I’m so grateful for my boys and can never thank them enough for making me a mother.
