5 Unique Gifts for Mother’s Day

Lately I’ve been doing a LOT of promotion of my own stuff, so I thought I’d take a break and show you some unique gifts that your Mom will love that I DIDN’T make!  I mean, she’d love my stuff too, but that’s beside the point.  Amazon has done a great job of showcasing what they call “Interesting finds” and I’m obsessed with browsing through them.  But of course, while Amazon might be one of the more convenient sites to order from, there are other retailers out there with great unique gifts!  Here’s 5 unique gifts for Mother’s Day you might consider this year.

Meet Pixel: Pug Princess

Things have been quiet around here on TrishaLyn.com, I know.  I’ve had a lot going on in my life that’s pulled me away from this blog.  I shared with you losing Lunchbox, and my mother’s plight.  There’s more to that later story, but I won’t go into it now.  For now, I want you to meet one of the reasons I’ve had little blogging time this summer – our new dog, Pixel!

AMAZING Friends & My Mom’s New Start

I started writing this post an hour ago entitled “This year can SUCK IT”.  I still stand by that statement, but I feel like my rambles deserve two posts.  So first, the saga of my mom’s horrible, no good, very bad summer that is starting to turn around thanks to some truly generous and AMAZING people I’m so glad to count as friends.  This is going to be long & very personal, so strap in.
