Yesterday was my mom’s 55th birthday! She recently went back to school and earned her teaching certificate, then after a few months of job searching, scored an incredible job as a Teaching Assistant at a preschool! I’m sooo proud of her.
For her birthday this year, I knew she wanted a new lunch bag to take to school everyday. So Joshua and I went all out at the PX and got her a Vera Bradley lunch bag, eyeglasses case, notepad, pencil case, and binder clips! My mom loves Vera.
She also loves St. Patrick’s Day, so that’s why I themed this care package around the holiday. Her grandmother (my great-grandmother) came straight off the boat from Ireland! We’re proud of our heritage.
Deployment or not, any holiday or special occasion is a great reason to make or send a care package!
