Support Mothers this Mother's Day

Support Mothers this Mother's Day

My mother is amazing. 

I just spent a few days in San Diego with my family celebrating my grandmother's 100th birthday & of course we had to introduce my 1 ½ year old daughter to the beach. She absolutely loved the sand. And I absolutely loved watching my mom get right down in the sand with her. 

It's a beautiful thing for me to get a glimpse of what life must have been like for me as a little girl. And it's so helpful to see such an example of being present & truly enjoying the moment with my daughter. 

Mother's Day

As a new-ish mom, it's been fascinating to try to see myself through my daughter's eyes. What does she think when I get a series of large boxes postmarked Mexico? Who does she think the smiling faces of the artisan photos in my home office are? 

Being a mom & an entrepreneur is hard. With both, the highs are high & the lows are low. Both are full of never ending lists of ways in which I could give more. Both are full of unexpected joys & complete exhaustion. 

But my daughter gets to see me living out my values & what I feel like I'm meant to do - even when it's hard. 

This Mother's Day, why not celebrate your mom by supporting a mom? Here's a list of some of my favorite mom-owned businesses:
