You've probably seen the beautiful images going around of our new Tubby Blooms line of Spring scents. We're so excited to finally share these with all of you. We've been dying to show you the Honeysuckle Blossom, Fresh Floral, and Pomegranate Pear trio and introduce you to Hannah Carpenter, the designer behind the pretty bottles. She's a mother of four living and working in Arkansas. We asked her a few questions about motherhood and this is what she told us:
1. What's the biggest lessons you have learned from being a mother?
The biggest lesson I have learned from being a mother is that your kids can teach you just as much, if not more, than you can teach them. So pay attention.
2. What has mothering taught you about yourself?
I love the concept of finding new things about yourself through motherhood rather than losing yourself in the self-sacrifice that is certainly a large part of the mothering process. Through motherhood, I have learned that I am capable of a lot more than I ever knew. Being a mom presents tasks you most likely never wanted to or knew you could tackle, though through it you realize the tasks have helped make you into a more well-developed and more capable person.
What advice would you give yourself as a new mother?
3. If I were to give myself advice as a young mother it would be, have realistic expectations: for yourself, for your spouse, for your children, and for life in general. If you need to go in the back yard and fall on your face and have a good cry, you aren't a failure, you're just alive.
Thank you so much, Hannah! If you'd like to shop the Limited Edition Spring Line, it's available here
