Being the child of immigrant Chinese parents, outwardly saying simple things like "I love you" have never been easy. I don't know why. Perhaps it's the tough love culture our parents were accustomed to, but we just never said it... Or at least never in words. It was always though action. If you have Chinese parents, you'll probably know what I mean.
The older I grow, the more I appreciate my mom for all the simple things that I had always taken for granted. I haven't been able to fly home for Mother's Day since I left for college, so I try to send my mom something really special each year. It took me a while to find the perfect fit, but I feel like the the golden #LoveYourMama collection from Noémie is something really made for her. A solid 18k gold ring, with the words "mama wo ai ni" engraved in mandarin pinyin. I figured it's the perfect way to say I love you, in any language... in a unique way that she can treasure for a lifetime.
