Kathleen, who’s in charge of making sure all 1800Flowers messaging reflects our brand’s voice, has a beautiful 1-year-old daughter who brightens up the whole family with her sweet personality.

Why She Loves Being a Mom: “Nothing makes me smile more than coming home after a long day at work and seeing my sweet little Charlotte smiling up at me. It’s the little moments that mean the most—singing and dancing along with Sesame Street in the morning as she claps and laughs along; rocking her to sleep at night with her favorite blankie. Even if I’m having the worst day, all I have to do is think about those special times we share together and I can’t help but smile.”

“What mom wouldn’t love being surprised with such a truly original gift? From the handcrafted white carnations and cute little button nose and eyes to the mini purple tote (my favorite color!) and Mom Rules magnet, this sweet flower pup is the perfect way to make me smile on Mother’s Day!”

A dynamic member of the 1800Flowers family for the past seven years, Chandra is also a mom to a sweet teenage daughter who loves treating Mom to breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day.

Why She Loves Being a Mom: “When my daughter says ‘Can you spend time with me,’ it makes me smile. I have a teenager and they rarely say that. I told my daughter the other day that she is Super Exotic Breeze OrchidsSmart and Crazy Beautiful. I do not know too many kids that teach themselves another language by the time they reach Intermediate School.”

Why She Loves Being a Mom: “My kids make me very proud. They are good-hearted kids with kind and generous souls who work (and play) really hard. It makes me smile when others see that in my children and say as Sweet Sentimentsmuch.”
