Like Mother, Like Daughter

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Not even all the flowers in the world, or endless days of breakfast in bed could accurately express our love for our moms. Because let's be real—after dealing with us for so many years, she deserves some sort of award.

So this Mother's Day, we decided to celebrate the incredible women in our lives in a different way. Here, we take a glimpse into the relationships of 10 adorable mother-daughter teams to see what special magic they've inherited from one another and what these girls love most about their mamas. Tissues not included.
