We love Mother's Day because it's a time for us to celebrate all of the awesome female mentors in our lives, biologically related or not. This one is for the moms, aunties, grandmothers, confidantes, and role models who have been lights in the darkness, people who have changed us for the better and taught us how to live with compassion and integrity. You guys rock.

5 ways to show your appreciation this Mother's Day
Make her a meal
...because her words of encouragement fed you when you had nothing else to live on.
Treat her to a mani-pedi (or a massage, or a facial)
...because she was the one who told you that it was okay to "do your own hair and go with a friend"
Take her on a walk somewhere beautiful
...because she was the one who first taught you what beauty was, and because going on walks together was the only way you could have a deep conversation when you were an awkward teenager.
Tell her you love her
Surprise her with a gift
...because even if you can't thank her enough or repay her for everything she's done, you can still make sure she feels pretty.
