We love our mothers. That’s why milk + honey held a Mother’s Day Makeover Contest. Thank you so much for all of your entries. It was wonderful reading all of the stories on what makes mothers so special. It was very difficult to pick a winner for our downtown and Galleria locations, but we pick two. We can’t wait to do it all over again next year.

Laurie is our downtown winner. Her daughter Kristin nominated her and wrote the entry below.
My mother has worked hard to raise all four children (all girls). She works to this day to make sure that we all have what we need. While growing up we all (six family members) shared a two-bedroom trailer, but we never felt the need for more. We were given so much love by my mother. She would do all the house work on top of her daily job of cleaning other peoples homes. She would make a hot meal every night, may it be fish my father had caught or a quick meal that we could afford.
My mother also took great care of my granny before she passed away. Living on the same property as my parents, my granny needed extra help after her husband was killed in a car wreck. Her health went bad, so my mother drove her to doctors appointments and to many hospital visits. To the end on my granny’s life my mother was by her side. She did everything for her.
Now three of us girls are grown and out of the house. My mother still cleans homes to provide for her family. If anyone asks my mom for help she never says NO. Even if she doesn’t have the time, she will always help. With all the work that my mother has done in her life, she deserves to be treated like a queen. I believe this makeover would mean the world to her and give her some much overdue down time.
