Gifts For Mom

So many moms I know joke about how they chugged down a diet soda for breakfast while they were pureeing organic baby food for their precious newborn. It’s so easy to get caught up in the demands of motherhood that we forget to take care of ourselves. While I tend to love all mom-owned businesses, this is one that has made a real difference for me as a mom of three little kids. Cristie, known by many as The Right Hand Mom, is a blogger who started her own health and wellness business, Real Life Wellness. Though she’s on the east coast, she coached me over the phone and helped me discover that poor food choices were causing some of my biggest health issues — including what seemed to be seasonal allergies. While I’m far from perfect, I’m a lot happier and healthier thanks to her. (Oh, and perfection isn’t her thing, so that makes it a whole lot easier to learn from her — and like her.)

When Ani was born in December, several friends and family members came to visit us in the hospital. I loved seeing everyone who stopped by to ooh and ahh over my new little baby, but I was most thrilled and surprised by the visit of my sweet friend, Ralphie.
Not only is she one of my closest friends, but she came bearing a beautiful little cake.

My baby girl, “Pink”, turns two on Friday. Two! Of course birthdays are full of celebration and anticipation, but I can’t help also reflecting on the two years that seemed to go by in a flash. Being that organization isn’t my strong suit, I haven’t done a baby book yet. Yet. (That’s what my blog is for, right?) I found this really sweet Winnie the Pooh Memory book right here on Disney Baby, and it got me thinking. Here’s what I would have written. And will. Someday.

About four years ago I commissioned a custom portrait for my husband and it’s still my favorite art piece in our house. But without Beck in the picture, it’s looking a bit outdated. So I’ve been looking around to commission another portrait (maybe for a Father’s Day gift?) and there are so many great ones to choose from, it’s hard to decide. Here are some of my favorites.

My sister is celebrating her first Mother’s Day, which is such a uniquely special holiday. The first time you’re being thanked and celebrated for this new responsibility and identity that still feels surreal — and so I want to thank her.
I want to celebrate her.
Because there are so many reasons I admire my little sister, as a mother. Here are just 10 of those reasons (plus the sweetest photos of my sister and nephew):
