If you are reading this, thank you! Thank you for visiting my page and for your continuous support. You are the best!
I have said this before, but I had never wanted to connect with other women like I did when I became a mother. I wanted to find someone to relate to. Motherhood is a beautiful thing…it is the best job a woman can be given. Just as much as it is beautiful, however, it can be a very stressful and an overwhelming time as well. I feel it is vital to have other moms to talk and relate to – other women that you know can have things in common with. I was desperate for this. I still remember how I found Ruby from https://la-mamacita.com: I have my husband to thank for this. He was the one that looked for a mommy group for me through the website MeetUp. I went to my first gathering with them at the MOCA museum in Downtown Los Angeles. I had the best time! After that, I hosted a brunch with Ruby where I met some other amazing moms. Ruby and I really connected and we both enjoy entertaining people. I love hosting gatherings so I knew that I had to team up with her. Ruby and I decided to join forces and L.A. MAMACITAS was born.
Even though motherhood is a full-time job, I believe that us moms should really take a break to refresh ourselves – you just have to! Whether it is going to get a manicure, pedicure, going for a run, or a day out with your girlfriends – you must do something for YOU! Therefore, Ruby and I came up with an intimate event where us moms could “pamper” ourselves, where there wouldn’t be so many people…..where mothers could take a bit of time off from being a mother and meet other like-minded moms as well. So that is exactly what we did!
It has been a lot of hard work, but we couldn’t be more excited and grateful. Our first big event was a complete success. I was overwhelmed with emotions that day. To SEE YOU THERE was the best kind of feeling. I have YOU to thank and all of the amazing sponsors that joined us that day – whether physically or through their product and services that they donated. Thank you to our husbands: you guys were amazing!! Thank you for being such supportive men that stood beside us every step of the way. I have to especially thank my partner, Ruby: thank you chica – for trusting in me and for feeding me your knowledge. We did it! You can head on over to her blog for more pictures and content!
