PANDORA Essence Collection Balance Charm in Grey Moonstone
As I type this last day of April, I’m optimistic that the torrential rain that is falling outside, will lead to those very famous May flowers! The month of May also promises that at the end of the month we will officially kick-off summer with the celebration of Memorial Day! But most importantly, May brings the day in which we honor our mothers, motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in society. Recognized by the United States in 1914, tradition is that each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers and/or maternal figure. So, as you plan how you’ll be celebrating that special mother figure in your life, don’t forget the other great things in May to mark in your calendars.
