Earned My Stripes

It doesn't end with the stripes. We also earned the bags under our eyes from sleepless nights. The messy unwashed hair and stained clothes. And the extra wrinkles from worrying about everything that could possibly go wrong. It's all proof of who we've become and of how deeply our love goes.

Stay Strong Mama

Too many mothers lie. We lie to others about life being easy, having the 'perfect' child and of having no worries or guilt. What's wrong with voicing our difficulties or to admit to our struggles. We might help someone else but we'll definitely help ourselves. Break the cycle.

Weight Of The world

For every mama that's struggling to get through the daylight hours to only have a fight on her hands after dark. For the ill mamas with the never-frigging-ending laundry that still needs to be done. For the working mamas trying to juggle. For the ones left at home in the endless cycle. For every mama that knows that feeling of the weight of the world.

The Empress

The Empress is an archetype of feminine power; she is watery, hard to fathom, mysterious, fertile, and sexual. She augurs a need for us to be in touch with our feminine side, to listen to our intuition, and to give priority to our emotions an passions. She can signify coming abundance.
