It has been eight months since I entered into the wonderful world of motherhood, and it is by far the most magical, challenging, blissful, emotional, tender, exhausting, and joyous experience of my whole life (and there are plenty more adjectives to describe this extraordinary time). I have learned patience, empathy, gratitude, strength, peripheral vision, and feel the most profound love beyond comprehension. It has given me a new found respect for all moms—particularly single mothers— and, of course, my own mom.
So with Mother’s Day just around the corner, it inevitably feels extra special for me this year—a little time to be pampered, showered with love, and celebrated. Because you soon learn that "me" time is an absolute luxury when you enter into motherhood.
In the spirit of Mother’s Day, I tapped into some of my favorite (and most fashionable) moms I follow on Instagram to see what they want the most this Mother’s Day. Naturally, more sleep, massages, and cuddles seem to be on the top of the wish list, as well as some cozy and chic gifts that all moms will truly appreciate.
