The Sunday Brief

May 9, 2021

Little known fact, but this blog was born because of motherhood. When I decided to stay home from teaching to be with my kids, I was admittedly a little lonely. I started writing. I wanted to share my experiences of being a mom with the world to feel seen – like when you decide to paint your nails during nap time and they never sleep, or when you are just having one of those days, or in the off-chance that you finally get a moment to yourself… I wanted to document all of the things that it meant to be a mom, and in doing so this beautiful community was born. Although the content on The Motherchic has shifted over the years, it still brings me so much joy to connect with all of you on a daily basis. Whether you are a mom, or a grandmom, a mom-to-be, an aunt, or a mother figure, I hope you feel loved and celebrated today. It is sort of a funny thing… “Mother’s Day”. I mean, I’ll take it. The extra hugs, maybe some flowers, homemade cards, soccer tryouts. Oh wait, how did that last one sneak in there? But I digress… it’s a day to look at a mom and think to yourself, “Wow, isn’t she something.” But honestly I think that everyday about so many women. It’s been a year, my friends! You are awesome. You are loved. Happy Mother’s Day!

When it rains it pours right? We had a lots of rain this week which meant we had lots of time inside to work on blog posts! The April showers some how kept going through May, so hopefully that will mean more May flowers. Speaking of, we put together the perfect post for how to display those flowers. The three foolproof vases you need for your beautiful bouquet. We also shared some swoon-worthy romantic dresses for your next date night. Today is also the LAST DAY to get Bonus Notes on your Nordstrom order. Check out our top picks from Nordstrom to help you take advantage of this perk ;).

Something MANY of you have been waiting for is restocking this week! Here is a hint! If you want a text from me once it’s available again, get on the list HERE!

Thanks to this little thing called the internet. Ok fine, it’s TikTok…. these home items are going viral. And I must say, the ratings have me adding to cart. Do I need that carpet cleaner? Do I have 4 boys? Is this even a question?
