It is that time of year to honor the incredible women that brought us into the world and raised us to be who we are today. Though we should be thankful for mothers every day of the year, it is on Mother’s Day we take the opportunity to show our gratitude.
It can be a bit challenging to know just what to get the women in our lives that deserve it all. So, here is a helpful hint: Gift the special mother’s in your life with something that represents your love for mom and also represents her.
If your mom loves the outdoors, camping, or the beach – We can help!

Honoring Our Favorite Mom’s | Mary Emily Platt Jackson, matriarch of the Jackson Family, was loved by everyone who knew her. Mary Emily was poised and very gracious, teaching her daughters about family and how to love one another while embodying that “sky’s the limit” and “just do it” mentality.
The class, humor, can-do spirit of Mary Emily Platt Jackson is evident in her five daughters. It was not just these skills she passed along to her girls, she instilled a passion and drive in them while allowing each to pursue their own interests.
The five daughters include Emily Vallarino, Laura Hoy, Kaki Williamson, Rachel Gandy and Jeanne Mize. The Jackson Daughters are still actively involved in Ocean Lakes, carrying on their family legacy. This Mother’s Day, not only do we honor Mary Emily, we honor the five daughters.
Until Next Time | Hug your mom and enjoy this Mother’s Day together. Create memories that will last a lifetime and always cherish those memories.
