Seriously, doesn’t this necklace just make you swoon? My kids know how I love purple and I was star struck when I opened this gift. This is made by the talented and amazing Ashley Takacs. You can follow her on Instagram @atakcrafts and check out her etsy shop HERE. I will be wearing this a lot so don’t be surprised to see it in future pictures. Yay!

The love of purple continues with this awesome insulated travel beverage container. You can keep a drink hot or cold in it and with the dachies all over, I will be taking this with me on a daily basis. They purchased it at Target and said they have lots of patterns.

My kids know the way to my heart…

This is new for me and can you believe it is purple?! Haha. While shopping in Ulta last week with my daughter I got to sample this. On my hand it went for a minute or two, wiped it off and I had this beautiful white circle on my hand. I was amazed and could hardly wait to smear it all over my face. It is a great detox and if you get a stubborn pimple or two (yes, I still get them once in  awhile) you can leave a smudge on it all night and it will help it disappear fast. It showed up for another gift. WooHoo! You can check it out HERE. Bonus, it smells amazing like fizzy soda! Even my son said he wanted to drink it.

Every year I say the one thing I want is to go flower shopping AND get them planted on Mother’s Day. I’ve been a mom for almost 27 years now and it happened! For the first time. Ever. I will be sharing more photos of my gardening areas in the near future.

Once in awhile you just gotta stop and look up to the skies from under a tree.

I am blessed with four awesome kids (five with my son-in-love) and although we don’t get to be together for every holiday anymore I know they love me and show it not just on Mother’s Day, but always. My oldest lives in Texas and my youngest is working in Australia. My dream is for us to all live close together again. I know life happens, but I can always have my wishes.

***On Thursday I will be sharing my latest Stitch Fix box…see you then!
