Having children of my own really brought home how much my mother has done for me over the years—not only caring for my sister and I but preparing us for life too. She has always told me: “You only have one chance to be a good mother. Try your hardest.” That’s something I strive for, particularly when I’m juggling the demands of work and home.
Mother’s Day is the perfect chance to let your mother know just how much you appreciate her. I love to give a fragrance—it’s so tied up with memories of being a little girl and smelling her perfume—and it’s now possible to personalize an AERIN Fragrance by adding your own message and floral monogram. Ever since my mother gave me a heart locket for my 7th birthday (and for almost every gift since in some shape or form), I associate that motif with her. The AERIN Green Shagreen Heart Box and the Large Heart Crystal make beautiful and sentimental gifts.
Of course it’s also lovely to be a mother, and I cherish the cards my sons have made for me over the years. So to all mothers, I hope you enjoy your special day.
