A good friend of mine once said "Becoming a Mother is the great 'equalizer' - what we did before having kids doesn't matter so much anymore. It's all about how you now raise your children + grow as a person with them". That remark has always stuck with me because it is very, very true. We are all in this together and being a parent is hard work. Why feel like you're at it all alone? Or when you're stuck, why feel like you're the only one "in it"? We're ALL in it.
That is why I wanted to start a morning gathering series that was full of intention + support. The Mama Mornings series that starts September 6th and will meet every other Wednesday until December 13th is meant to be a relaxed, encouraging space where we can bring our common issues, struggles and successes as Mothers to the table. Even if you think you have everything going smoothly (which you probably do!), there is no better time than right now to create more meaningful connections in your community.
Coffee, light bites, notebooks and some toys for the crawlers will be provided. Weather permitting, we'll meet at the Marina Vista Park (adjacent to playground + parking area) at 9:30AM. Each gathering is $8 to cover food + supplies; however, if this is something you can't slip into the family budget right now, just drop me a line + we'll figure it out!
Come as you are, feel free to bring your little ones (crawlers only, please) + invite friends who this may interest - all are welcome! RSVP is strongly encouraged to better prepare for group size. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm looking forward to this + can't wait to meet some new faces soon. x, Lauren
