Today is the founder of Maison Decor’s birthday! (She’s also my mom.)
I’ve always wondered if February 15th is a somewhat strange birthday to have, what with Valentine’s Day only 24 hours removed. I imagine it can sometimes feel a little bit less special when everyone gets a big day on the 14th (cards, flowers, a dinner, etc.) and the 15th probably includes a lot of the same exercises. Kind of like having a birthday on Christmas, but not as much.
It may sound corny, but I wanted to make it known how special my mom is, especially on her birthday. She built this company from scratch, and transferred some of her talents to me and allowed me to hitch my wagon to her star. Beyond learning how to curate a store and paint and distress antique furniture, she taught me how to be a (what I hope to be a pretty good) person. She’s always been a mom foremost, and as generous and helpful as she’s been for me, she’s never been afraid to give me direct, tough love. If you’ve ever attended any of her wildly popular workshops, you may have seen some of this approach. (Watch out for drips! No, no, no. Do it like this!)
I know everyone says it, but I’ve got the best mom you could ask for, and she backs it up day after day. If you don’t believe me (and if you haven’t already), check out her blog and see for yourself. Maybe even wish her a happy birthday in the comments.
I love you mom, I hope you have the greatest day and a greater year.
