It wasn't until becoming a mother that I truly understood the power and beauty of the female sisterhood. As I've grown Coco Moon, I've made connections with mothers all over the world, the majority of whom I've never met, and most likely never will. But the bond of motherhood is universal and when we speak to each other about the joys and trials of raising our keiki, we speak the same language.
In that spirit, we're thrilled to launch a new monthly blog feature called, "Talk Story."
In Hawai'i, when we kick back and chat casually with friends or family, we use the phrase "talk story." We're bringing this tradition to life by asking our community a few questions around a theme and sharing them with you.
What better theme to kick things off than this crazy, amazing whirlwind called motherhood:
Mahalo to all of the mamas that participated this month! We loved talking story with you!
Let's keep the conversation going! What's your support system like? Does it play a big role for you? Did anyone from your tribe give you a great piece of advice?
Please share it below in the comments!
If you'd like to participate in next month's Talk Story segment, we'd love to chat with you! Please send us an email: info@cocomoonhawaii.
I don't know about you, but it is nearly impossible for me to get my family together for a decent photo. The funny thing is, I don't know who is harder to get in front of the camera - my wild boys or my camera shy husband!
But 'tis the season for family pictures, so I turned to Angelina Hills for some tips on getting the most out of family portraits this year.
Whether you're taking photos on your own this year, or have booked time with a professional photographer, read on to learn Angelina's do's and don'ts for getting your family's best shot...
Meet Nicole Ferrara - super mama to twin boys, the powerhouse behind Nico Made, AND a frequent designer for our very own Coco Moon. We just love her style, her vibe, and her sweet disposition. With two of her designs launching in our new collection later this month, we wanted to shine a light on this bright Hawaii talent and all that she brings to the table.
As much as we may wish for it to be all hugs, kisses, and rainbows, sometimes parenting is rough. Real rough. So we turned to our community to find out how they keep their super mamas vibes pumping during those challenging moments.
I'd love to hear how you keep your mama head up in the comments of this post!
