Mother's Day with High Strung

My mama is one special gal - I've always respected her as a parental figure, but the older I get, the more she becomes my best friend. I've felt incredibly lucky about how close we are - don't get me wrong, she's still my mom and we don't always agree, but I can easily say my mama is my best friend. She's beautiful, she's strong, and she's an incredible mom - I am definitely blessed to say the very least. 

This Mother's Day will be a different one for our family - as many know, my dear Nonny -- my mama's mom -- passed away in May of last year, which means this will be my mom's first Mother's Day without her mom. Though we miss her each and every day, I'm thankful she is not in pain and is watching over us as the most perfect guardian angel. I always want Mother's Day to be special, but especially this year, and I know we will have a wonderful time celebrating with my Grandma Brown, too!

As part of my mom's Mother's Day gift, I decided to give her a customized necklace from High Strung. Based out of Wilmington, High Strung offers beautiful necklaces, with their signature being a hand-painted bead with a tassel. Being a coastal girl, I decided to go with a nautical look, but gave my mom a blue beaded version, which I think she loves. When ordering, I just flipped through their Instagram and customized what look I wanted, as everything is made to order! Mom and I were both raised here in North Carolina, so I love giving her a gift that is based right here in our home state. 

Whether you're celebrating your mom, your grandmother, or a special lady in your life, now is the time to say thank you - so Mama, thank you for your continued love, for listening to my road rage when driving through Wilmington, for taking blog pictures, for your much-needed opinion on so many things in my life, for raising me, LB, and Bro the way that you and Daddy have, and for just being you. Happy Mother's Day!
