Long before I became a mother I wrote in my childhood diary. "When I grow up my prince charming will magically appear and sweep me off my feet. He will be tall, blue eyed, handsome, smart, strong, kind, friendly and very loving man. We will fall madly in love, have 4 children and live happily ever after". When my mother showed me this I smiled, shed a few tears and laughed. Little girl dreams, some of which came true!
One of the most powerful and powerless relationships is that of motherhood. Joy, laughter, tears, frustration, exhaustion, from the minute they are born you cannot believe how much you love them and isn't that the beauty of it all? We take pictures of their every move and moment from the little ones to the big ones, capturing first steps to silly faces, graduations, vacations and parties. Life is a celebration of all the moments!
Celebrate your story. You all inspire me everyday, mothers are cultivating well mannered, kind, happy little kids into little people. One of the hardest and most rewarding jobs is that of a mother. No one else can multitask better than a Mom. This Mother's Day I'm celebrating the relaunch of Kelly Gerber Jewelry, inspired by my daughter, photographs and a million memories of life long before we all had Iphones, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter & Snapchat, we just had cameras!
Find your "Kodak Moment", send me your photos, from your phone or desktop. Wear your story close to you, It will be one of your most treasured pieces of jewelry, after all it's your life.
Happy Mother's Day!
