All my favorite reading and shopping links for this week...

Happy Mother's Day

Happy weekend, my colorful cohort!

And special Mother’s Day wishes for my fellow mothers out there! May you feel loved and appreciated in special ways this weekend.

For those of you for whom Mother’s Day brings up negative feelings, I get it. I didn’t have a positive mother experience myself. Take care of yourself.

This year, I look forward to spending time with my little one. I’m thankful for this chance to form a healthy, thriving, loving mother daughter relationship with my daughter.

In any event, I wish you all an enjoyable, refreshing weekend! Now, keep scrolling for all my top picks for weekend reading and shopping…
