Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and as the day nears, I’ve thought about what it means to be a mother. It’s the equivalent of a full-time job, one where you’re tasked with coordinating time, creativity, needs, wants, and cleanliness into a day, 24/7. It’s also rewarding, challenging, demanding, and quite frankly, a blessing beyond anything the imagination can produce.
My perfect Mother’s Day would include spending the day at the beach as a family, then meeting up with friends and family for a relaxing dinner and cocktails. But, in case the weather isn’t ideal, an item from this wish list of gifts would also make me smile.

Fossil Ryder Satchel Handbag in Spring Green or Neutral Multi (shown)
I fell in love with the Spring Green version of this handbag at first campaign site. It was so effortlessly styled and chic looking that I’ve longed to add it to my handbag collection. While I still prefer the Spring Green version, I wouldn’t mind the Neutral Multi, which would wear well with almost any outfit!
