E’s 2017 Mother’s Day Shopping Guide
My mom has been an inspiration to me since I was a little girl. From raising three crazy stubborn kids, moving to the U.S. to find a new life with her family, working long hours in the garment factories (see picture), to making sure there was dinner on the table every single night. I may not show my appreciation of her everyday and might find her nagging tireless, but I never take her for granted for all that she’s done for my siblings and I. I know this because as my mom would always say, “Wait until you become a mom and you’ll understand”. In response, I would roll my eyes. Mom, thanks for all of your sacrifices and unconditional love. Your love for me gets pass on to my own daughter.
I’m lucky and blessed to be a mom to Kinsley. She’s been a joy in my life and never would I ever thought I’d love someone so much (other than Peter of course)! Motherhood experience itself has been amazing. There has been some hard times and many amazing times. The best is when she looks up at me with her big brown eyes, and all the problems would go away. Because nothing else matters at the end of the day, except properly raising my girl. I pray and wish time will slow down, as they grow up so damn fast. To me everyday is a celebration of Mother’s Day with my little K!
Well, Mother’s Day is one week away. There’s still time to get your special mom or mom-to-be something she’ll love. I’ve curated some of my favorite things to help you search for that perfect gift. Happy shopping!
