Strong women…

At the beginning of the month I was asked by Social Print Studio to share a photograph in honor of Mother’s Day and tell the story behind the photograph. With the month nearly over I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity. Plus, when you have a mom that takes as much care of you at 32 years old as she did at 32 hours old Mother’s Day is everyday.

Today I get to bring you another #oneyearamadre post. I love sharing the different stories, emotions and experiences that come through when I ask friends to reflect on one year of motherhood.

This time from my friend and colleague Rivah. Her daughter Naomi turned one about a week a half ago and I promptly asked for a post. Rivah and I were pregnant around the same time and were able to confide in each other about all the awkwardness of pregnancy, the excitement and anticipation of becoming madres and the different struggles we both came across. Rivah has been the ying to my yang so I am really looking forward to sharing her post. Continue reading “#oneyearamadre by Rivah”
