Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 20, 2010
Monster-in-Law. MIL from Hell. Sound familiar? Among the multitude of websites, self-help books, and negative pop-culture influences built around the stereotype of overbearing mothers-in-law, Storkie Express, the online retailer of quality graduation announcements and wedding invitations, is carving a niche for the mom-in-laws who don't fit the monster mold. Mother in Law of the Month premiered on May 19, 2010 on the Storkie blog, providing a space for women to nominate their mothers-in-law for being friends, not foes.
"Movies, sitcoms, books, talk shows - we are bombarded with the notion that our mothers-in-law have ulterior motives and don't approve of anything we do," explains Rachel Smith, Storkie's Resident Blogger. "But what about the untold story: the one of a solid mother-in-law and daughter-in-law friendship? Those should get just as much attention, if not more so, than their 'monstrous' counterparts."
Mother in Law of the Month requests individuals to write in via email or write a comment on the blog detailing what makes their mother-in-law so special. "We are looking for a range of stories for MIL of the Month," says Smith. "What cultivated your relationship with your mother-in-law? Was it friends-at-first-sight, or did it take years to reach a comfortable place? What do you respect most about her?" The option to e-mail a picture of mother-in-law with daughter-in-law to be posted as part of Mother in Law of the Month is also available.
Storkie's Mother in Law of the Month encourages women to show their MIL appreciation on a regular basis by offering eight ways to make a mother-in-law feel special. "Having national holidays dedicated to appreciation, like Mother's Day, is great, but we want to go a step farther. We want families to acknowledge their love for each other all the time, in both big ways and small."
