Mom, Momma, La Maman
More than half of the Elsie team is made up of mothers. To attempt to convey how truly amazing each of them are would be an extremely difficult task. What I can tell you, however, is that I see these women walk into the shop every single day with a passion for knowledge, an urge to educate and support those around them and a drive like no other to consistently challenge themselves. All while, might I say, slaying the role of motherhood. As such, I would like to extend my gratitude to each and every one of the beautiful mothers of the Elsie team for showing me firsthand what a working momma looks like. For not sugar coating the ugly, for sharing the yelling teenager stories, for showing me that it is possible to balance it all (and that some days it just isn’t), and for acting as a substitute mom when mine was a few too many miles away. You motivate me each and every day to be my best self, and for that I am forever grateful.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone.
