Have you decided what to do for Mother's day?
I decided to get some presents and cards for my mothers and write a message to my mothers in the world here on my blog:)

Presents for my mother
had to be somethings that could be shipped. It couldn't be some accessories, beauty products, cooking products because she is not really interested in. I gave her bags, shoes, and skirts before. so her presents for this year are...

Clothes + A card
I just randomly went & luckily found this cutest T-shirt at aeropostale (US$24.50). Just so perfect!! My mother and I love blue color and lace. Since she was looking for a casual T-shirt, I got this one for her and myself. Our 1st matching clothes ★ (a cute idea, isn't it?) hehe I also got a summer casual dress from Kensie & a camisole from h.i.p. at Nordstrom that I forgot to take a picture of. sorry guys:'(
by the way, I found these pictures of the T-shirt on ebay.
It was only $9.99! bummer..

Presents for my boyfriend's mother and my Mexican mother
Soap nuts + cards
from One Fair World. There is a Japanese song about "Mother" (this is a title too). This kids' song sings that "Child : mom, you smell really good. Mom : it's a smell of laundry soap." So, I bought this one for moms (although they are not from Japan). Take 3-4 nuts and soak them in the hot water for couple minutes. Put them into the attached cotton small bag. Throw the bag in the laundry. So magical! It's a nut & it's a soap! It's a soap nut!! We can use the same nuts 3 - 4 times:) It's natural and great for sensitive skin.

Present for my current host mother
I think I will go to get a card + a bottle of wine from a local wine shop!

To my wonderful mothers in the world! I counted them. There are at least 13 host mothers and women who are like mothers to me. Unfortunately, it's super hard for me to keep in touch with every single one of moms + my international friends, so I have not been able to keep in touch with how they are doing. BUT I will never ever forget about such wonderful mothers. Even though I couldn't speak English at all, you gave me a great lesson instead of giving up on me. I learned how to accept who others are and where others come from, how to share who we are, how to be a daughter. You also showed me how to be strong, thoughtful, lovable, and many more important things that I needed to learn :) It was just very amazing to meet you! Those memories that I had with you are priceless. Please do not forget that you will always be n my heart and I will never forget about you. Thank you very much. I love you all! I hope all of you had a wonderful mother's day!!

with love and smile, Vivian
