In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend here are some links to things around the interwebs celebrating motherhood… Because I love my mom to pieces and I love being a mom more than anything and everyday I come across another mother out there who is nothing short of inspirational.

This story here brought me to tears – the good kind. It’s beautiful and talks about becoming a mother in several different ways.

My talented friend Megan wrote a beautiful piece about her mother called “Aging Gracefully” and took gorgeous photographs that have been published in The Village Magazine, Issue 2. Check out their website and blog and maybe do like I did and order your own lovely copy. The Village is “…a quarterly parenting publication dedicated to bringing back sisterhood, love, support, friendship, inspiration, kinship, and joy to your everyday. It is filled to the brim with inspiring interviews, delicious recipes, heartwarming essays & poems written by mothers from across the globe and all walks of life and so much more.” It reminds me of Kinfolk, but geared just towards moms. What more could I want in a magazine? Nothing.

I’ve been following this adoption story for a little while now and they have this wonderful etsy shop where all proceeds go towards helping them bring their son home.

So, it’s pricey, but how amazing is this Mother’s Day Gift Box???!! I want one so bad and I haven’t even read what all comes in it yet. I found it on 100 Layer Cakelet, where they had a few other ideas as well…. Ugh, I just looked at it again. I want it.
