Mother Daughter.

Usually I have at least an inkling as to what gifts are before I receive them around Christmas time, I'm not even sure how I manage it, but I think it's quite the skill. Perhaps I'm losing my touch but this past Christmas my beautiful mama completely surprised me with the Pandora Mother Daughter charm. Being so sentimental and perhaps slightly overly emotional I got a little teary eyed & instantly felt a little overwhelmed and so thankful for the wonderful relationship my mama and I have. She is without a doubt my best friend, she has been there always, no matter what and her selflessness and strength are two incredible qualities within her that I both I admire and am in awe of. Things haven't always been easy, but we made it through together and I will be forever grateful for her support, her kindness, her advice and her love. I wouldn't be half of who I am today without her, she's a very special person indeed. Thank you mama, I love you.

xoxo

  5. Gorgeous post :) and what a lovely present. I am always so sentimental about mother-daughter stuff as my Mum is the most important person in my world and although we don't have the most orthodox of mother-daughter relationships, I don't know who I would be without her.

  18. Jennie, what you have just described is exactly the relationship i have with my mum. She is my bestfriend, and i genuinely don't know what i'd do without her. We each have a pandora bracelet, and only me & her are allowed to buy charms for the others bracelet :)
    The gift your mum surprised you with last Christmas is lovely, i do love that Mother/Daughter charm and i think i need a search for it! xx
