The Gift of a Clean Home for Mother’s Day + Giveaway!!

I always appreciate gifts like jewelry, flowers, and food (definitely food) for Mother’s Day, but there’s another kind of gift that truly leaves me swooning. It’s the kind of gift that’s practical, and takes a time-consuming task off this busy mama’s plate.

For the first time ever, we had our house professionally cleaned recently by Kori Powell of Fresh Cleaning Services, and it was a game changer!!! So much so that I’m going to tell you a little bit about my experience with Kori and her wonderful company, and offer a major giveaway just in time for Mother’s Day!

A Sweet Chocolate Treat + Walmart Giveaway!

I know everyone says it, but I really do have the best mom in the world. I’m so happy we were able to celebrate Mother’s Day together, and although circumstances have been pretty hectic lately, I wanted to make sure I showed her how much I love and appreciate her. 

 

In addition to spending time with my mom, her not-so-subtle hints were duly noted, and we wanted to get her exactly what she wanted.

I Love My Mommy Because…

The moment I walked through the doors of my 4-year olds pre-k prep class, I saw that I was in for a  very special treat. My sweet child ran to me with a handmade (literally) bouquet of flowers, listing  reasons why she loves me. I’m quite certain I melted into a puddle right there on that floor.

Even though she’s come home with a new craft each week for several months now, (most of which serve as priceless decor on our refrigerator), something about this was different.
