30Second Updates!

Lots of great updates going on at 30Second Mom! Thanks to all of you who participated in our Most Memorable Mother’s Day MoMents contest. Whether you sent in an entry or you commented or shared them, we appreciate you being a part of it, and we are so excited to announce the winners:

First place goes to Sara Herbert, who shared a sweet Mother’s Day story about matching Tom Brady jerseys given by her mother-in-law to her and her newborn son, Brady.

Second place goes to Donna Lewis, who told us about her young children’s attempt to make her a special breakfast on Mother’s Day.

Third place goes to Simone Lamothe, who shared how Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to cost money – a simple letter from the heart is priceless.

Fourth place goes to Heidi Davis, who shared a story about her favorite multi-generational Mother’s Day and her keepsake photo of four generations of women in her family.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered. We had a great time watching and sharing your entries, and celebrating your Most Memorable Mother’s Day MoMents!
