Happy Mother's Day

As usual, during my weekly on-line travels, I have happened upon some great, fun, and inspiring stories from fellow bloggers. So in honor of Mother’s Day, here’s some of my top picks:

The Magic Craft Box is a seasonal delivery of 4 magical craft kits for you and your children to co-create beautiful handmade treasures. They have a simply delightful Summer Magic Craft Box right now.

Our friend Shannon Kinney-Duh from A Free Spirit Life has a gorgeous course coming this summer called Mothering With Heart. AND there’s a special Mother’s Day discount as well!

Loving fully, finding beauty in the struggle, embracing your intuition, expressing your creativity, being aware of your children’s changing needs, making space for what matters most to you, and building the courage to live your authentic life  – that’s what mothering with heart is all about.

And lastly, what better way to spend time with mom than to be outside together. We feel this should be a “year-around” thing as well, not just something reserved for Mother’s Day.
