Like A Mother Series – Feat. Julie Harris From Holloway Home Organization

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 Julie Harris from Holloway Home Organization

afloat: Who is the person you’re celebrating this Mother’s Day?
julie: I am celebrating my mom, Diane, the strongest, most loyal, thoughtful person I know.

afloat: What is one word that you use to describe a person who feels like a mother to you? 
julie: Compassionate 

afloat: What’s your go-to gift from your store to celebrate someone who feels like a mother to you and why? 
julie: Mothers take care of everyone else all the time so the gift of organization is all about taking care of them! Organizing her closet, refreshing the pantry, cleaning out the laundry room – any area of the home that moms tend to be in every day! Clutter creates chaos, leaving moms overwhelmed and frustrated. Holloway Home Organization helps de-clutter and organize, leaving moms with a calm, peaceful home.
