Share Your Mother’s Day Memories For A Chance To Win: Plus Check Out My Lands’ End Video! #mylandsend #DearMom

Mother’s Day Memories

I am so HONORED to share this wonderful video that Lands’ End put together for Mother’s Day. The #DearMom project is simple – remind mothers about the simple and beautiful things that motherhood offers. I have to be honest with you – I cried a few times while filming and am very happy that none of those moments made it into the film because I am MESS once in tears. LOL!

I think every mother can relate to the thoughts that are shared by every woman in the video. And who better to kick off the entire discussion than Joan London?! WOW! Take a look! Audrey McClelland couldn’t be happier with the turnout! Our message is clear. Our children are our lives.

What did you think? Land’s End really did something special, right? They didn’t stop there either!

From April 24 until May 10, you can follow daily prompts to share a Mother’s Day message, motherhood moments, photos or videos on Instagram and/or Twitter using #DearMom, #sweepstakes and #mylandsend for a daily chance to win a $100 Lands’ End gift card. Winners will be chosen at random and participants are encouraged to enter daily, because Mom can never hear enough how much she’s adored.

WIN A TRIP WITH MOM:

A Lands’ End survey found 86 percent of mom respondents would like to spend more quality time with their children. As a result, Lands’ End is offering one lucky winner the chance to win a trip with Mom through the #DearMom sweepstakes. From now through May 10, 2017, everyone can enter for a chance to win a four-day trip for two to America’s favorite modern classic destination, Hilton Head Island.

I suppose I couldn’t have a mother’s day post without telling you a little bit about my mom and my #DearMom moments. During shooting, I was asked about why I loved my mom and I physically couldn’t say the words because I knew that once I started, I would migraine cry and bawl and the shoot would be OVER. I literally told them that I couldn’t answer their question because it would end the shoot.

I suppose I couldn’t have a mother’s day post without telling you a little bit about my mom and my #DearMom moments.

But now that I am home and safe behind closed doors, I can answer that question. Why do I love my mom?

Because she persevered for the both of us.

Because she shielded me from the worst.

Because she always gave me an extra hug even when I said I didn’t want one.

Because she unconditionally loved me – even during those horrific teen years.

Because she did her best.

My mom traveling with our family

Because she loves my children with all of her soul.

Because she taught me to dance in the rain.

My Dear mom and me

Dear Mom…

Thank you.

And for all the other moms out there looking for a little advice – I have something really simple for you to remember.

Embrace every moment because time is fleeting.

Embrace every moment because time is fleeting.

Proudly partnering with Lands’ End on the #DearMom campaign
