How To Celebrate Mothers With Ethical Fashion
Motherhood is a something I feel a bit conflicted writing about.
As someone who has been through the death of a parent and a child, I am hyper-sensitive to how a day like Mother's Day is a painful reminder of those who are deeply missed. Or for those who want to be mothers, but aren't, or can't be; or to those who have living mothers or living children with whom they are strained or estranged. And I know so so many people who fall into any number of these categories and that leaves like, 3 people who can actually fully enjoy Mother's Day.
Whatever your relationship is to your mother or motherhood, I hope this week we can all find a way to honor the mothers in our lives, and here are some ideas beyond the usual relationships.

A NOTE ON ETHICS IN WRITING
I only work with brands who I genuinely believe in. All opinions are my own. I may sometimes (but not always) use affiliate links in my blog when talking about products or services that I truly suggest, which means that I may get a small commission if you end up buying or trying something through a link I share. This is one of the ways that I continue to fund the stories and programs that Bead & Reel creates and supports.
