Like A Mother Series – Feat. Janel Perez From Hip Hip Hooray

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 Dallas store owner Janel Perez from Hip Hip Hooray.


afloat: Who is the person you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day? 
janel: At HipHipHooray, we know mothers from all stages of life and love to celebrate them ALL. We are constantly learning from one another.

afloat: What is one word that you use to describe a person who feels like a mother to you? 
janel: A word I would use to describe a person who feels like a motherly is warm (meaning loving)

afloat: What’s your go-to gift from your store to celebrate someone who feels like a mother to you and why? 
janel: A go-to gift from HipHipHooray to celebrate a Mom could be a cozy gown & robe set. Moms deserve to sleep like a baby, too!
