Hello to my wonderful readers, I am so beyond thrilled to share this post with you. It involves the most amazing, precious, and sentimental jewelry that I have ever seen. I met Colleen initially when she won a Monat Raffle through a MOMtrepreneur giveaway that I was a part of. Our paths then crossed several times within the next few months. So much so that it was inevitable that we would collaborate.
I would like to now introduce you to Colleen Berg and share with you the story of her jewelry line.
Colleen Berg started her business over 17 years ago, when she was pregnant with her first daughter. She was working in advertising but wanted to work from home when her daughter was born. She managed to sign several agreements with different ad agencies to work freelance from home. September 11th happened and Sofia was born 3 days later. Businesses were worried about the economy and within a couple of weeks, the jobs she had contracted were cancelled. Knowing her family was a 2-income household, she was still hoping to work from home. Jewelry making had always been a hobby and she decided to turn it into a business.
In March I wrote a super successful post about How to Explain The Spirit Of St. Patrick’s Day To Your Toddler. Then in April I followed it up with How To Explain The Meaning Of Easter To Your Toddler. I received overwhelmingly positive feedback for both of these posts. I also learned so much from doing them, and found that I really enjoyed researching and writing them. A recurring comment that I received was that I should create a similar post for each upcoming holiday. I think that is a fantastic idea! I will have to explain each holiday to Morgan anyway and what a better way than to actually learn the facts behind them. Today I will be sharing with you How To Explain The Importance Of Mother’s Day To Your Toddler.
To be honest all I knew about Mother’s Day was that it is a National Holiday honoring mothers and motherhood. I am so every fortunate to have become a mother for the 1st time in 2015. Although I have been celebrating Mother’s Day with my own mother for years and years; until today I didn’t know much about the history of this special day.
Morgan is still too young to understand fully what I share with her but I wanted to make sure that I did my research so that I can pass on to her the stories and traditions of the many holidays that we celebrate here in America.
I do absolutely love traditions and customs. So I set out to learn as much as I could about Mother’s Day and the meaning behind the holiday. Here are the top 7 things that I have learned about the importance of Mother’s Day that I will use to explain it to my little Morgan. Thank you so much to my wonderful friend Google for steering me in so many interesting directions while researching this history.
