One of the many traits I’ve received from my Mom is my handwriting, more specifically, my signature. It’s funny how even the little things like how you cross your “T” or curve your “J” can be passed down from generation to generation. It’s something I notice often and pay extra attention to when I send a card to my mom. That’s why I was so excited to partner with Hallmark for Mother’s Day — they always have the perfect way to celebrate a loved one!
There is something extra special about receiving a handwritten Hallmark card. Unlike an email or text, a card is touching since it’s truly personal and physically real. I try to send cards on all holidays, but it’s extra important to me that I send my mom a card on Mother’s Day. After all, I did get my handwriting from her, so what better a way to tell her how much I love and appreciate her to the moon and back?
My mom is always present to support her kids and grandkids. I look to her for strength and inspiration on a daily basis. Even though they’re not my moms, my sisters are exceptional mothers themselves. Without a question Sharee, Katherine, and Marabeth will be receiving cards of appreciation, too!
I’m so happy to have discovered Hallmark Signature cards because much like the very notion of sending cards, this line is beautiful and timeless. I chose to send my Mom this floral edition because like her, it’s vibrant, feminine, upbeat and lovely!
What card will you be sending mom this Sunday?
We all have busy lives to keep up with, places to be and things to do. It’s easy to lose touch with people you wish you could see more often. Every so often a random person will pop into my head for no particular reason and I’ll think fondly of them for a moment and then move on. You know when that happens? You think, “Oh, I like them! I should call them soon.”
Yesterday I received a text from a friend I haven’t spoken to in almost a year, not for any reason other than life got busy and we haven’t crossed paths. “Thinking of you! Hope all is good!” was all she wrote. It made me so happy! I responded, “I think of you all the time! Miss you.” It was a short but sweet connection that reminded me of one of the many wonderful people in my life. I might not see or speak to her often, but she is there.
The sides of Catt Sadler we know and love are the witty, vivacious host of all things entertainment and the stylish, savvy blogger of The Catt Walk. To celebrate a day that’s close to her heart, Catt is sharing her ideas for making mother’s day special without breaking the bank, and reminds us what Mother’s Day is truly all about.
It’s hard to put into words what being a mother means to me. It is the greatest privilege I’ve ever known. Whereas in most areas of life I can reason and use logic to approach a given situation, this is the one arena where I find all that goes by the wayside. Most mothers would agree you’d die for your children. You’d run into a burning fire for your children. You’d move mountains to know they are safe, healthy, fulfilled, inspired, and living their best lives; whether they are two weeks, two years, or twenty years old!
With that said, when it comes to Mother’s Day I know many people spend hours online and in the stores seeking out the perfect gift for mom. Well, I’m a mom and let me tell you the truth: the priceless gifts cannot be bought because they don’t cost a thing! We really just want to be with you, spending quality time, laughing and loving on each other.
Rachel Roy is not only an incredible fashion designer and purveyor of style, she’s also a proud mom and daughter too. I love her philosophy for getting dressed with others in mind. I’m definitely going to consider this notion not only for Mother’s Day but any time I want to style myself for someone else’s smile!
Part of being a great daughter, an excellent mother, or even a good friend is finding ways to make the people we love feel appreciated. One of the ways I like to show my love is by considering their tastes and style when it comes to my wardrobe. Yes, you read that correctly!
For example, my youngest daughter loves pink and she loves when people are dressed up. So when I pick her up from school, I’ll often choose a fancier option than is required for errands because I know it will delight her.
