When my children were younger, it was so easy to put everyone else first, to not do the things in life that made me happy. you’ve probably been here too. Maybe you’re here right now. It is so easy to fall into this trap. At some point, I realized how my unhappiness affected not only myself but my family as well. Making time for yourself is so important. It has a ripple effect that spreads to the whole family and makes everyone calmer and happier. After I came to this realization, I decided that I needed to put myself first because I deserved that. And so did my family.
This is what made me want to inspire other Mama’s to do the same thing. This is the whole reason why I do what I do. Being a Mother is a tireless and often thankless job. The fact that we created these perfect little beings is a BIG deal. This is an accomplishment that deserves to be honored! To be praised! I love making new mothers feel beautiful and pampered. All the while being able to create perfect little moments amongst the chaos — to celebrate the love and joy that is motherhood. This is what every mother deserves.
I feel so fortunate that I get to call this work. Who else gets to wake up every single day and help families celebrate life & love? I love that I get to tell their story. It is incredible to be able to create a moment in amongst all of the chaos that is new parenthood, where new moms and dads can really just focus on that amazing, tiny human that they created. I am pretty lucky if you ask me!
