Mother’s Day is my favorite day. I wake up feeling lucky and go to bed feeling loved. I do my favorite things like hike and explore rocks on the beach with the kids. I kiss and hug them a thousand times. I turn my computer off and turn my listening ears on. I enjoy a Mimosa and shop with my sister. I call my Mom and tell her how much I love her. I look up at the sky and whisper to my Grandmother. On Mother’s Day we get to pause and reflect on all the wonderful things that Motherhood brings. On Mother’s Day we are reminded that even though we might not hear it everyday, we are cherished. This Mother’s Day I hope you get to do whatever feeds your soul….because you earned it.
I’ve partnered with one of my favorite shopping centers, The Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham, MA. on a curated Mother’s Day gift haul. Below you’ll find a list of some of my favorite stores peppered with images of gifts for some of your favorite moms (including you!) I plan on referencing this post myself, post mimosas. I believe that’s called “Sloppy Shopping” ladies. Psst: Make sure to follow The Derby Street Shoppes on Instagram and enter their giveaway contest; they are giving away many of the items we have listed below. (Hurry – Ends Friday!)
1st Stop: My Mecca.
The place I could spend hours in. The place where I can pretend to be whoever I want. The place where I can convince myself that a $25 lipstick with beeswax in it is an absolute neccessity. A place where you couldn’t pay me to bring my kids in…
A store that smells like peonies and looks like Vera Bradley gave birth in it. A store I trusted with my own wedding invites. A store that makes me want to wrap, write, draw, drink coffee, and play games all at the same time.
THE PAPER STORE
Quick Pit Stop For: DAVID’S TEA
A place that makes me wish I had an unlimited budget. A place that makes me want to go into interior designing as a hobby. A place that always makes me feel at home…
SETTING THE SPACE
For a dose of, “I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom…”
5th Stop: Kate Spade
Where everything she touches is beautiful. Where words provide inspiration, especially the ones written on this cup…
Speaking of cake, Mother’s Day comes once a year, right? Head on over to White’s Bakery so you can have your cake, and eat it too.
…….shoves cake in face. does not feel shame.
