Like A Mother Series – Feat. Ashley Bare From Hemma Hemma

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 Ashley Bare from Hemma Hemma.

afloat: Who is the person you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day?
ashley: Me! It’s my first mother’s day, and I think it will be the most special of my life (only because it’s my first, not because I’m expecting anything spectacular lol)

afloat: What is one word that you use to describe a person who feels like a mother to you? 
ashley: Constant.

afloat: What’s your go-to gift from your store to celebrate someone who feels like a mother to you and why? 
ashley: Any of my frozen meals! Because every mother deserves a day off from cooking – mother’s day or not.
