A new mom’s appreciation this Mother’s Day.
As a new mom, I have a whole new appreciation for Mother’s Day. It was a day to send flowers and a sweet note to my mom reminding her how much I love and appreciate her but I don’t think I grasped how much my mom has done and given up in order to put me first. But this mother’s day will be different … forever.
Since Adaline entered the world exactly 2 weeks ago, my life has been turned upside down, for the best, but nonetheless upside down. Restless nights, baby brain to the max, a very messy home, loads of laundry, lots of dirty diapers and a whole lot of pumping and feeding. The week before I gave birth, my mom and I were out and about, shopping and dining out as much as we could to pass the time while we waited for baby girl’s past due date arrival. And just like that, this sweet little girl entered my life and my perspective on life and what’s important has completely reorganized. She’s number one in my life and will always be my first priority. Who knows the next time I’ll find an opportunity or need to go shopping, dine out or schedule a spa day. Now I have a better understanding and deeper appreciation for all the moms in my life and the un spoken love.
Moms give up their priorities to put another ones first. Even with me out of the house and moved on to growing my own family, my mom dropped everything going on in her life to fly out here for over three weeks to ensure her baby (me!) and the newest baby was well taken care of. Which is why this Mother’s Day, I know exactly what to get my mom, knowing now the importance of taking some time to pamper yourself a little. L’Occitane has created the perfect gift set just for this to say thank you and I love you from the bottom of your heart. It’s the gift of priceless time and luxury by taking care of your skin feeling like you just left the spa after each use. Of course I had to test the set out myself, you know … make sure it was mom worthy 😉 and I absolutely love the decadent almond gift set. This nourishing set of natural beauty skincare products keeps skin feeling soft and supple for the perfect at home pampering that doesn’t require an appointment.
Coming from a new mom that would totally appreciate a little extra self care, this gift set would make the perfect mother’s day gift this year. To say “thank you for all that you have done” with the gift of love and care. Have them take the time to pamper themselves this special day.
