I HAD to get one! I even turned to Chris and put a bug in his ear that this would be the coolest Mother’s Day present, knowing he would have no clue what to get…even though I’m happy with just a card. (Totally not expecting anything anyways) But this still would have been awesome.
I fell in love with Tali’s story and her inspiration for designing the necklace. What a classy way to show off your a Mama. As she mentioned women have a way of expressing milestones with jewelry from engagement rings to wedding bands, and now they have a Mama necklace.
I may be a different kind of Mom but either way, I have a son. I gave birth to him and he made us a family of 3. No one can take that experience away from us and even as short as his life way… I was still his Mama. And I want everyone to know I am a Mom too, but it’s something kind of hard to do in my spot. It’s something I struggle with on a daily basis. I want so badly to be recognized as a mom. But it is SO hard to do when you you don’t have the baby in tote and all the accessories to go with.
I entered Blairs contest with never expecting to win. There was a ton of other readers who also fell in love and wanted it just as badly and deserved it just as much. So when I got the message from Blair herself that I won the Mama necklace… I had tears. Actually we both did.
I will wear it with pride, and one day I hope, pray and dream I will be able to pass it on to my child when she is a Mama.
Thank you Tali & Blair!
