SOUFEEL – Charm Bracelet Review

If you travel a lot, or live abroad like I do, Mother’s Day, birthdays, and special family events can be difficult to plan for. Thankfully this year, Soufeel contacted me about doing a review of their classy and adorable charm bracelets. They asked if I would be willing to send a bracelet to my own mother, free of charge, for Mother’s Day, so that I could review their product.


About Soufeel’s Bracelets

Before I get into the specific impression my mother had about their product, I will share a little about the charms and bracelets that Soufeel offers. Their charms are 925 sterling silver and also fit Pandora and Chamilia bracelets at a lower price (including sparkle murno charms). They have a ton of varieties for the discerning woman in your family. I was able to find something for my mother very easily. Read more

World’s Toughest Job – MOM

I just saw this video today. I’m a little behind on what is going on in internet land because we are repainting our flat, and with three small kids underfoot, you can imagine how much a of a challenge that is.

First of all, it is an amazing marketing strategy for selling Mother’s Day cards! Secondly, I wish they would have mentioned that many times you are not even allowed to go the bathroom alone. That would have gotten some interesting reactions!

Did the video make me cry a little? Yes, ok. I’m only human after all. And to be honest, I have no ideas for Mother’s Day this year. Sometimes I think that moms with tiny children should get a pass on Mother’s Day, because usually I am planning my own mother and mother-in-law’s presents in the midst of trying to be a sane mother of three and it can be overwhelming. Am I a terrible daughter for saying that? I feel like mothers of adults remember what it was like when their kids were tiny and all encompassing. For the last few years, all I wanted on Mother’s Day was to sleep in! That is pretty much the only gift I want on Mother’s Day and on my birthday.

Moms out there, you do have a tough job! I just want you to know that I appreciate you and I am right there with you.

Moms Unite!!! (In sleeping in on Mother’s Day hopefully)


Happy Mother’s Day!!

My mom, Peggy, left on Saturday, so we did an early Mother’s Day shoot with her and the kids. I am sad she had to leave, but I know that God has something planned for her over in Southern California… several thousand miles away.

We are all taking it easy at home today because Kati is pretty sick, poor little cutie. But, Travis is making me chicken tacos for dinner. Yum!!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day reflecting on all the blessings that come with being a mother. Today I was thinking about all the sacrifices and what it means to be a mother, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything! My life is not my own, and I’m glad. I also have a new member around this Mother’s Day, and I have to say Timotheos has been an amazing little addition to our family unit. I am blessed beyond measure. For all the women out there that nurture children (Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, Teacher, Friend…), you are awesome!! Thank you for everything you do!!
