For those of you who have been following along for awhile, you may remember my post from last fall outlining my capsule wardrobe for the season, along with information about what a capsule wardrobe is, and the benefits of having one. You can read more about that here.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I could do for my own mom to celebrate all she has done for me. Truthfully, I don’t think there will ever be anything I can do or say – and certainly not buy – that would ever truly convey how grateful I am to have a mom like mine. And yet, every year, we try our best to spoil our moms in some special way – to let them know that we know just how blessed we are to have them.
Now, being a mom myself, with kiddos who are finally old enough to understand the meaning of the holiday, it’s fun to watch them plan and “whisper” to one another (and to their dad) all of the things they want to do to spoil me this weekend. Some of their ideas are pretty inventive 😉 But at the end of the day, the fact that they are even thinking about it is all the gift this mama needs.
“How do you know when you’re done?”
I think this is a pretty common question women – and maybe just families in general – wonder about. When do you know that you’re done having babies, and that your family is complete? I’m in a ladies group that meets once a month, and at our last outing, we were actually discussing this very topic. As a group of 12 women, we are across the spectrum when it comes to life experiences, careers, family goals, etc, so it’s always fun to discuss big topics when there are so many perspectives.
