Okay, so, this really isn't an ode, but "free association and appreciation" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
It's Mother's Day month. Appreciate yourself. It feels corny, but, look in the mirror and acknowledge that you are doing a great job. May not feel like it some days, but, if you're reading this, it's true-whether you are 12 weeks pregnant or have a 12 year old. We make mistakes. We moms are human. Thank goodness.
To all the hundreds of thousands of MOMs who have joined us through the years, we hope that this Mother's Day you celebrate the wonderful mom that you are. We look through these photos and we are truly humbled and honored that each of these moms gave us a day out of their journey to motherhood.(And there are so many more, but, if you want to see what poor executive function looks like in an adult just take a peek at my photo files-eek)
We've said it before and we'll say it again-being a mom is the best and the hardest job ever. Ever. We hope that all of the beautiful women pictured here, and all of the tens of thousands of moms we have known, do their best to celebrate themselves, not just on Mother's Day, but every day.
(And yes, all of the women pictured were moms who came into the shop, and then modeled for us-there is one professional model in their midst. We bet you can't figure out which one. They are all stunning. We are honored to have known them.)
