My Mom and Best Friend
“This picture was taken last May, just 10 days after my Mom’s 1st of several surgeries for breast cancer. I was blessed to be able to spend 2 weeks with her after that surgery and while it was a scary and trying time for us all, I will cherish that precious time together forever. Mom has taught us all a lot about faith, strength and grace over the last year! I love you Mom! #breastcancersurvivor.” – NICCI G.
No one wears more hats than a mother. She can be our greatest cheerleader or a humbling voice of reason. She’s a hero and a healer. An inspiration, a chef, a comedian, a teacher, a disciplinarian and a confidant. But most importantly, she is the example after which we mold our lives. She is, perhaps, the single most influential presence in our journey.
In honor of mothers and uplifting female figures everywhere, we are hosting Letters to Mom, a contest that celebrates the “colorful” mom.
We invite you to “Like” us on Facebook, select “Letters to Mom” and follow these simple steps:
1. Upload and frame a photo of you and your Mom.
2. Write a brief description about one of your favorite memories with her, or simply why your Mom is colorful.
3. Share your entry with your friends and invite them to vote for you. The entries with the most votes will be eligible for daily and grand prizes.
The entry with the highest combined scored will receive a prize package including: A 22″ Expandable Upright, Grand Traveler, Hipster, Large Cosmetic, Small Kisslock Wallet, Straighten Up and Curl and a $500 Vera Bradley Gift Card. (Total value: $1,542)
Once your upload is complete, follow the instructions to print and frame your favorite photo and share it this Mother’s Day.
Entries will be accepted and voting will be open through Wednesday, May 9, so upload and start sharing your memories today. While you’re there, don’t forget to browse and vote for other entries you love!
Since we aren’t eligible, but we certainly love our Moms, we put together a little tribute from folks around the office. Enjoy!
