I like to say I’ve inherited my love of flowers, candles, & capturing photos from my mom. I have such fond memories of seeing my mom working in the garden, & our house filled with warm scented candles. She still loves candles, & when either of us finds a particularly “yummy” one, the other MUST get it. My love of photos & capturing every moment, I’m sure, comes from watching my mom work for hours on end to beautifully craft personalized scrapbooks for my siblings & I. Savoring those memories and turning them into works of art, hmmm seems familiar…
Thanks mom for instilling the love of beautiful things. They brighten my day just like you.
5. Be Kind
Honestly, my mom has taught me so much about kindness. About genuine love even for those I’ve never met. Every single person deserves love & kindness even if they haven’t show those things to me. Kill them with kindness, if you will. The best part is, she hasn’t taught me kindness with just her words, but through her life. I’ve seen it displayed even when it’s hard. It challenges me to reflect on who I am and how I treat other people.
Thank you for for being someone I can always look up to. I am so proud to call you my mom.
Last Minute Gift Ideas:

I have two favorite lipsticks that I love, but always hold out on wearing them until Fall: Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color in Divine Wine and Revlon Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick in Berry Haute. The great thing about both of these products is that they are under $5 each!
*They do have a maple pecan latte this year…a little too sweet if you ask me.*
RVA friends: This harvest latte is bomb!
