What I’m Getting My Mom for her Birthday

Now that I’m in my late twenties, I thought I would be past the stage of calling my mom every day, but if anything, we talk more now than we ever have! When I receive good news, my mom is the first one I call… when I’m having a bad day, I crave her voice and encouraging words. We talk on the phone every week, sometimes for hours at a time (something you do when you’re 12 with your best friend in middle school talking about your homework and your crush, haha!) When I stop to think about it, I realize how my mom’s role in my life has changed… she will always be my mother, but now is my friend, and there’s a big difference.

So when I was brainstorming ideas for my mom’s birthday (it’s June 1st!), I really wanted to give her a piece with meaning. Not just some body lotion or a scented candle, but something really special that signifies how much she means to me! I fell in love with the KAY Love + Be Loved Collection, and of course, the meaning behind the collection. Each piece, whether it be a necklace, bracelet or ring, has two interlocking loops which represent an inseparable bond.

The really great thing about the Love + Be Loved Collection is the varying price range, so everyone can afford something from it. This sterling silver necklace is gorgeous and less than $70, as well as this sterling silver ring. My personal favorite pieces are this diamond necklace (that I’m wearing in the photos) and the yellow gold diamond ring. Oh and I want to point out that this collection is not JUST for mothers, if there are any boyfriends/husbands out there reading this, I’m sure your lady would love this gift coming from you, too 🙂

I linked up a bunch of pieces from the collection, below!

P.S. This is a sneak peek of my new office, but I will be doing the full reveal in a couple of weeks! If you want to order something from my office in the meantime, you can contact my designer Kelsey Hymel (kelseylee.hymel@gmail.com).
