My mom got me this sweet little gift and gave it to me while we were in Vancouver (did you see my little blurp on our family vacation?) My mom wrote this simple message in the front of the book, "from one mother's heart to another." Have I ever mentioned how wonderful my mom is?
This book is basically 92 pages of adorably cute animals and uplifting motherhood quotes and stories. Its a quick read but an excellent gift. (Mother's Day is coming up!) I wanted to share a few of my favorites from here. Happy Friday Moms!
