And now we ask you… What advice would you give a new mother?
Earlier this week we asked you to share your family photos on instagram with the hashtag #teaheartsmoms. Keep tagging those photos – we love seeing all of these smiling faces. Wishing you a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
Things we found and want to share from this past week:
Mother’s Day, the one day dedicated to all mother’s around the globe. You work so hard to keep the kids on schedule, to make sure everyone is fed, you sacrifice your few precious hours of sleep to tend to sick babies. It’s no easy job. Every Mother’s Day we try and thank those who’ve raised us and looked after us for so many years – the ones who still pick up our calls to listen and never stop encouraging us to explore the world. We’ve gathered a few recipes and DIYs for this year’s special day, and while we realize most of our Mother’s Days won’t be so calm and collected, it’s nice to dream, right?
This Mother’s Day, let’s…
Spend all morning diving into the pile of magazines and books we never seem to have time to read. Surround ourselves with fresh flowers. Drink our coffee slowly… in silence. Buy outfits for ourselves. Re-read old Mother’s Day cards and remember the first time we heard “mama”. Open pretty packages. Enjoy a long brunch with family. Remember the women who helped us become the ladies we are today. Get lost in art and celebrate the everyday beauty of being a mother.
Handmade Mother’s Day gifts; they’re usually colorful, sometimes pieced together in school, but always crafted with love. We are so honored to have Emily featured in DailyCandy.com’s round up of Mother’s Day gifts. The penholder is bright and messy, but you’ll find it on Em’s desk prominently displayed because it’s a constant reminder of her bright little messy ones, who are always filled with big hugs and kisses!
