Happy Mother’s Day!

…from the Nakagawas!

I am proud of many things in life, but nothing beats being a mother.
— Camila Nakagawa

What a special day today is.

Today is a day for us moms to celebrate ourselves and all of our hard work. I’ll be honest, as a new mom it’s easy to default to celebrating my son because after all, he is now my entire world. My everything. And while he will always be my greatest work of art, today is meant for me.

Today is about me, and you, mama. And it’s important for us to embrace that.

Being a mother is the most empowering experience I have ever been through. I know now with full conviction that I am truly capable of anything in this lifetime; after all, I created a human and have been raising and nurturing that ball of light into becoming their own person. Us mothers know that after all of that, there is not one single thing in this life that we cannot do. For that fact alone, I am eternally grateful.

and damn proud of myself.

This also goes out to my own mom and my sister. Two souls with whom I would not be where I am today. My mom is my hero; she fought tooth and nail to give me the life I have today. She is now my rock and quite literally Kai’s bestie.


And to my sister, who is not “officially” a mom herself but cares so much for Kai and has been there through every step of the way (she helped me birth Kai so really, nearly a mom herself).

Today is for YOU too! I just wanted to say thank you to every mom out there who has dedicated their life to their children. Momming is HARD and until you become a mom yourself, it’s impossible to understand. I see you. You deserve sooooo much love in this life.

I love you all. thank you thank you thank you!

Cheers to us mommas!!
