Mother’s Day is such a special day for me now that my darling kiddos are here, but I started celebrating it many moons ago thanks to my own beautiful mama. She was and is the kind of mother who always put us first and we never questioned for one moment how much we were loved. In fact, she deserves to be celebrated more than just once a year, that’s for sure, especially since she just took me on a trip of a lifetime a few months ago.
During the holiday season we went on a ten day European jaunt…just the two of us. We made the trek from Buckingham Palace to the Notre Dame laughing the whole way. It’s kind of an amazing thing when you’re all grown up and you realize that your mom is not only a parent, but a really good friend. I mean you can’t travel successfully with just anyone. Am I right? I’m pretty sure the hubs and my step-dad wouldn’t have appreciated high tea quite as much as us girls. Haha!
So, I’d have to say that our London and Paris vacay contained some of our most memorable moments together, notably the hot chocolate, champers and dessert experience at Angelina’s in Paris. I don’t know if I’ve ever tasted anything that delicious or ever will again. And my mom was the perfect partner to enjoy it with…chocoholics that we both are. In fact, my bestie, Megan, and her mom did the same exact thing a few years before us. It’s a mother / daughter tradition!
And while this daughter is definitely going to try to show her mother how important she is throughout the year, Mother’s Day is going to be all about her too. And that’s why I’m so excited about the Land’s End #DearMom campaign. From now through May 6th you can show your mom how much you care by sharing a special photo or video on Instagram and or Twitter daily using the hashtags #dearmom, #contest and #mylandsend for a chance to win a $100 Lands’ End Gift Card! Each day @LandsEndPR will share a unique prompt or question asking for a certain message, photo, or video to be posted. So, make sure you’re following @landsend and @landsendpr on Instagram and Twitter so you don’t miss anything!
AND, until May 4th, you can also enter to win a five-day, trip for you and your mom, to the luxurious Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach hotel. Now that’s a mighty fine way to celebrate Mother’s Day no? You can find the entry from HERE. Good luck!
While you’re over there, why not shop for your Mother’s Day gifts? This mama wouldn’t mind receiving a Land’s End gift card…Just sayin’. Happy early Mother’s Day to all you fellow mamas out there! I can’t wait to see your #DearMom shares! Have fun celebrating mom!
