What comes to mind when you say the word “mother”? Is it her sweet scent when she comes to a room, or her soft touch when she puts you to sleep? Whether it’s her voice that soothes your pains or jolts you when you need to straighten up, a mother is a mother and it is great to be one.
In celebration of Mother’s Day, we have had the privilege of hearing from mums from our Spinkie community as they let us into their homes and much to our delight, the common thread that binds us mothers is LOVE—which is always worth celebrating!
So many wonderful things happen the day a woman becomes a mother. For Giorgia Gambato from Italy (@giorgia_gambato), “the best thing is looking at my baby’s eyes, as they reflect love unconditionally and myself. From them I can see a new woman, stronger than ever feeling a new way to love.”
Carlee Wright (@carlee.and.littles) from Australia shares that this type of love makes it all worth it even on the hard days. Her kids “bring unconditional love and joy to my life, and make me burst with pride with each and every new milestone. No matter what kind of day you have had, at the end of it, I get to put my two precious babes to bed and hear those words.”
It’s also fun to have a mini-me as your best friend, which Narin Karimi (@nariinkarimi) from Norway loves about being a mum to her daughter Celine!
As we continue to enjoy this journey of motherhood, how can we celebrate our special day at home with our families? We asked some Spinkie mums what they will be doing, and we love their plans and ideas!
Stephanie Vara (@thevaratribe) from Australia will be having a nice brunch set up for a virtual celebration with her extended family in her backyard. She shared with us that she will be using our Dreamy Fort which we are ecstatic to see! She also is looking forward to the home packages her husband has prepared for her—how thoughtful!
For quality time with her little ones, Carlee (@carlee.and.littles) created a special place her kids will surely love to hide away in. We love how she used the Dreamy Fort and made it more magical by adding some extra fairy lights, making it the perfect place to read a book, play a game, have a snooze, let their imaginations run wild all together and do all the Mother’s Day crafts she is organizing for her kids! To take a night off from the kitchen, she’ll also be ordering in some Thai food that her whole family will surely enjoy.
We shouldn’t forget to pamper ourselves too and do self care remedies. The more we make time taking care of ourselves, the more we are able to take care of others. It does not have to be anything grand, but even setting aside a few extra moments away from everyone in our bathrooms or private spaces can go a long way. Take it from Giorgia (@giorgia_gambato) who will spend the morning taking care of herself with a long skincare/haircare routine and a relaxing bath; and Narin (@nariinkarimi) from Norway who will also take extra time for her rituals and ordering some much deserved treats for herself online!
To all the mothers, we hope you and your families enjoy this memorable occasion at home… in your Magical Spaces! You all truly deserve it. Thank you for allowing us to journey with you!
Happy Mother’s Day!
