I looked at my calendar for the month of May and realized Mother’s Day was quickly approaching! I’m really close with my mom and love being able to spoil her with nice things here and there. She’s the type that doesn’t like to spend money on herself so when I get the chance to buy her something pretty, I take it! Hint: I may or may not have already gotten her something off this list!
A lot of people ask me why I’m so close with my mom or why we talk everyday- it’s because I love her! But I was also homeschooled most of my childhood and that definitely fostered a closer relationship with my mom than if I had been in school. Since moving away from my hometown in Maryland, keeping that closeness has gotten harder but we still have it thanks to FaceTime and phone calls!
Calling her every day makes it feel like I’m not so far from home and that I still have a hand in things going on. I love hearing about what our pets are up to or who my mom ran into at the grocery store or what new restaurant is being built. It’s just nice to keep up with all of the hometown happenings.
My mom is also one of the best listeners ever. I can ramble on about nonsense for an hour and she’ll still be listening. I’m a high anxiety girl, so being able to share my worries and fears with someone who knows me better than anyone is such a relief. She’s not only my mom but also my therapist!
What to Get Your Mom This Mother’s Day
Like I said earlier, being able to get my mom nice things is one of my biggest joys in life. She deserves so much more than anything I can give her but it’s the gesture that counts right? I was digging around for some pretty things online for Mother’s Day gifts and everything was quite pricey (girl on a budget here!) so I filtered out anything over $75 and these cute things came up! I’m loving the satin sandals and monogrammed clutch the most!
Let me know what you’re getting your mom for Mother’s Day!
