Welcome to a special blog series in honor of Mother’s Day: Like a Mother.
Here at afloat, we’re all about celebrating everything and that includes making Mother’s Day special for everyone. We know that not everyone has a perfect relationship with their own mom, may not have a mom or may have trouble becoming a mom themselves. That’s why it’s our job to make everyone who is like a mother (strong, powerful, nurturing, and a badass) feel celebrated on Mother’s Day.
To do so, we asked our store partners (many of them moms themselves!) how they celebrate Mother’s Day, and most importantly, how they describe a person who feels like a mother, whether biological or not.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the caretakers and nurturers out there. We celebrate you! In this edition, we sit down with Kansas City store owner Kelsey Perry from DuoFIT Maternity.
afloat: Who is the person you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day?
kelsey: Of course my mom! She is the living example of someone who works for others. She is dedicated, motivated, loving and honestly a BA! I also love to celebrate all the special people in my life that offer nurturing and love to my littles. We are surrounded by aunties, cousins, friends and family members that may or may not be mothers but still fill that special place. They also deserve to be celebrated.
afloat: What is one word that you use to describe a person who feels like a mother to you?
kelsey: Home. It is a feeling in your soul that offers the comfort of home.
afloat: What’s your go-to gift from your store to celebrate someone who feels like a mother to you and why?
kelsey: What I love about afloat is that you can get a gift that speaks to each of those special people individually.
