She was and is my hero in life. Here we are in 1997 on a special trip to celebrate my college graduation at the Garth Brooks concert in Tulsa.
I am vocal that the fact I no longer have my mother in this life does not mean I do not celebrate this holiday with the same fervor and sentiment that I did in the 26 years I celebrated it alongside her as Jan's daughter. When I was given the opportunity to participate in Hallmark's 2015 Mother's Day #PutYourHeartToPaper campaign, I was very happy to accept. heart emoticon
I received a selection of their newest card designs for Mother's Day to share with special women in my life. These designs have taken my breath away with their beauty and unique spirit. They are not geared toward what some card companies tend to do, for "the mother", but geared toward reflecting all kinds, and all numbers not just counting as one, of special women in a person's life.
I love the sweet sentiment paired with the fun design of this Grandma card. It brings to mind my beloved late maternal grandmother, Grandma Cleva because she truly encompassed the words on this card.
As a coffee lover, I am so taken with the unique spirit of this card that comes with a beautiful detachable coffee sleeve.
This card comes with a wooden necklace with a fantastically fun design.
I love the traditional design of this card paired with elegant details.
I will be sending this fun expectant mother card to one of the moms-to-be in my life.
The foodie in me loves this fun kitchen mixer design and sentiment.
I am such a glitter fan and I think the pink glitter detail of this card is just as amazing as the card's sentiment.
I love this Hallmark video from their #PutYourHeartToPaper campaign with grateful daughters sharing their love for their mother.
