I never actually thought when I was pregnant I was having a girl. Secretly I was wishing for a little girl and yes I know you aren’t supposed to actually say that but let’s be honest. I think all women have a small desire to be a girl mama. Today I’m sharing some of my life promises I’ve made to my daughter and a personal gift idea for Mother’s Day with Wanderer Bracelets to honor the bond between mom and daughter.
TWO HEARTBEATS TO ALWAYS BEAT AS ONE
Aside from Erik the one person I have always been closest to is my own Mother. She literally is the air I breathe. There’s only one person I can literally talk to 10 times a day and never run out of things to talk about. We have a bond that runs insanely deep. Erik often says it’s unhealthy how close we are but somehow I think God just knew I needed her and she needed me.
I could only dream of passing our bond down to my own daughter one day. There is no guarantee our children will stay close to us. We can only nurture, teach, love unconditionally, and guide with the hope that our little ones will always stay connected to us.
I have passed my life lessons in love that I learned from my mother down to Summer and in doing so we are so close. While I may be premature in thinking this I have a feeling our hearts will always stay so connected and that the bonded history of my own mother and I will continue down the line to Summer and I.
For the mamas with daughters who feel that same insane connection the Kids Heartbeats Bracelet represents life, vitality and stamina. The heartbeat symbolizes the moments that give us life. And for you mama the Heartbeats Bracelet is a reminder of that very 1st moment we heard their little heartbeat. Two heartbeats connected as one and never to be unbroken.
I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR ANGEL
Even when I was going through my awkward teen years and spent a good part of my 20’s finding myself my mother was there to reassure me. There were times when I hated myself. I didn’t love myself. I had no idea who I was or what my mission in life was supposed to be. Years of feeling lost and confused. Yet my mother was always there next to me helping me find my way.
From the moment I found out I was having a daughter I vowed to always do the same for her. I will be there for the good times and I will hold her hand so tightly during the hard times. Life is hard but having the unconditional love of your mother to help you navigate the waters makes the challenges feel less alone. She has been my angel all my life and I will in turn always be Summer’s angel. Watching over her from near and far.
The Winged Heart Bracelet represents strength, grace and compassion. It tells the story of angels watching over us everyday. Maybe your angel is on Earth or maybe your angel is in heaven. Angels surround us with love and love gives us wings. We are never alone. Angels are all around us. This personal gift is a tribute to the angels in our lives.
TEACH HER WHAT BEAUTY REALLY IS
Mother’s of daughters — one of the most important things we can pass on to our daughters is the message of making them feel beautiful inside and out. We live in a world that glorifies beauty and materialistic things. It is our job to keep our daughters grounded and to find beauty within.
Will our daughters one day grow up and feel insecure in how they look and what they have? Absolutely. It’s a part of life. But I can only hope that my own daughter will learn that the real judge of beauty is who is on the inside of a person. This is a lesson she is too young to understand but I hope the seeds I plant today will help her in the future.
The Hibiscus Bracelet represents beauty. Just as a flower blossoms it’s blooms are a reminder that youth is dwindling down everyday but wisdom comes with age. The hibiscus symbolizes your past and your present.

Would I have been happy with a little boy? Of course I would have. But my role as mother to my daughter was God’s plan and I embrace my role with every ounce of love and pride and can only hope I’m shaping her into a strong, confident and vibrant woman just as my own Mother shaped me.
