Happy Mother’s Day

Posted on May 8, 2015

May is the perfect time for Mother’s day. It’s Spring, everyone is happy that the snow has melted, and the world is becoming beautiful again. It’s very fitting.

I must admit, I started a new job a week ago and I’ve been doing a lot of guest posts. I have a douzey coming up in the next few weeks so stay tuned. In the meantime – one of my favorite blogs did a beautiful Mother’s Day post and I wanted to share it with you guys…

“They tell you life changes after you become a mother,”

says smiling and sunlit Rebecca, watching her two year old son, Edward trek up and down the dirt path, stopping to pick mustard flowers. At this point in my life, I can only joyfully imagine what she means. We spent the day earlier this week with three gorgeous mothers and their beautiful children. These women are purely exquisite — confidence, courage, and grace pours from them like the sun shining through an open window. We were honored to meet these beautifully authentic souls and to witness the unique and tender love shared between them and their children.

Meet Jen and her two earth angels, Violet and Vivienne. The three have a bond… connection… love so strong you can’t keep your eyes off of them. They laugh together, dance together, rest together. They are the true definition of soul mates.

Back to Rebecca and her little blondie, Edward. He’s a little, curious, and independent guy who is always on the move to further his own exploration. Rebecca is always close behind, ready to speak words of encouragement to her little man. These two are buddies; constant companions on adventures near and far.

And finally, meet Jordan and her darling daughter, Wynter Poppy. I fell in love with Wynter as soon as I heard her beautiful name! This duo is as artistic and adventurous as they are gorgeous. “Our favorite thing is traveling and exploring… I love taking off as a family, driving up the coast, sun in our eyes and smiles on our faces. Creating memories and living off of the land… our little tribe.”

Thank you Jen, Rebecca, and Jordan for giving us a glimpse into your lives as mothers. We are eternally grateful and inspired.
