With Christmas just around the corner, I'm double checking my list to make sure that I've not forgotten anyone. This year, I had a really hard time shopping for my mom. You know how when you get someone the perfect gift one year, it's hard to get one to top it.

My parents are divorced, and my mom remarried when I was four. Unfortunately she didn't get professional pictures of her second wedding, and no one gave her any of the photos they took. She owns maybe 4 or 5 pictures from her wedding total. One day I was cleaning out some boxes, packing up things to move into my first apartment with my hubby, and I came across an invitation to my mom's wedding. I knew that I had to get it framed, I was sure my mom hadn't seen it for years. I spent way too much money to have the invite along with one of her precious pictures framed and matted for my mother.

I know she was surprised and touched that I preserved such a special memory for her. It hangs on her wall, and I know she sees it everyday. It's these special gifts that make Christmas so meaningful. It's not about the money you spend on the next best thing, but the heartfelt thought that matters.

So, I feel like it was THE perfect gift...but now what to do? Luckily my mom is fairly easy to shop for. And if all else fails, she loves gift cards because then she can buy exactly what she wants. My mom has a fancy new iPhone, so I'm thinking of getting her a fancy SWAGG giftcard to go with it. Whatever it will be, I love my momma and that love makes any gift perfect.
