 Mother’s Day is fast approaching! Sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect gift for your mom…and the other mother figures in your life. I’d love to see what special ideas for mom you all have to share this week! 

In other news, we announced the winner of our Secret 13 essay contest this week, please help me congratulate Maggie Roush!!! Maggie writes the blog, The Love Nerds, and her inspiring essay, “It’s Okay to Change Your Plan,” was our most-voted for essay! If you haven’t read it yet, be sure to check it out!
