With Mother’s Day on the way, it’s important to show our appreciation for ALL the special ladies in our lives! I remember feeling a bit forgotten as a stepmom a few years ago, so I want to make sure that no one in our family is left out of this day. In addition to honoring my own mother, I celebrate my mother-in-law on Mother’s Day too!
Something I didn’t quite realize when I got married, and perhaps many of us don’t, is that we also marry that person’s family. Getting along with your own mother can be tricky sometimes, but getting used to someone else’s mom is a whole other ball game!
However, I feel blessed to have to have a mother-in-law who is so caring and concerned for her family, especially her granddaughters. I want her to know that we appreciate all that she does for our family.
This photo is from a visit to our local zoo. We spent all afternoon strolling in the perfect weather, enjoying each others’ company and admiring the majestic animals. The trip was capped off with a stop at the zoo gift shop where Grandma did what grandparents do best: making sure the girls had a souvenir (matching giraffe stuffed animals) to remember the day. What a special memory!
When I saw the Tree of Life Necklace from Hallmark Jewelry, I knew that it would make the perfect gift for my mother-in-law on Mother’s Day, as it would represent our families uniting and growing together.
This timeless necklace features a polished sterling silver Tree of Life pendant with glittering cubic zirconia-studded leaves. It is accompanied by a matching 18″ chain with spring-ring clasp. It comes beautifully packaged in a presentation box, cloth jewelry pouch and an enclosure card emblazoned with the sentiment “Love begins with family.” It is thoughtful in every detail.
I wanted my daughters to be involved in the process, so I had them create a hand-made Mother’s Day card to give to their grandma along with the necklace. My oldest is an expert card artist, and can make anyone feel like the most special person in the world with her work!
Mother’s Day will be here before we know it, and even if you haven’t made any plans yet, there’s still time! You can find this gorgeous Tree of Life Necklace and more Hallmark Jewelry at Amazon.com, which I love for last-minute gift shopping!
