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 Katie Seymour from Lemon Squeezy.
