A Little Piece of Me

4 May 2016

“To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings.”

– Anne Christian Buchanan

Pregnant moms somehow have a timeless sense of grace in them, a rare radiance that glows from within, making them absolutely beautiful. Mothers carry a miracle inside their bellies; a new addition to life’s creation with much to endure. Nine months to take on - the strain on their backbones, sleepless nights, toilet runs, heat flashes, hormonal changes, emotional distress and immense weight gain.

Nevertheless, with each growing day, they persevere on as they remind themselves that there is a growing beautiful new soul which makes motherhood a miracle of life; a gift that God has granted specifically only to them.

For Mummy Gwen, such is Baby Lauren.

This little surprise baby shower was just as sweet and perfect as the mummy-to-be. We saw something special in Gwen and we channelled it into a statement of ‘A Little Piece of Me’ that reflected baby Laurenn as a part of her. It couldn’t have been more elevated without that dusting of rose gold, the perfect geometric edges of the venue and the sweetest of pink hues to welcome the new princess.

As Mother’s Day is drawing near, let us also reflect and give gratitude to that one strong woman of our lives who will always be our biggest teacher, friend and comforter, and who will always have that little piece of us in the biggest of their hearts.

To all mothers, you will forever be the world’s greatest survivor and a testament of God’s miracle in all of our lives. Be reminded that you are so loved and wholly beautiful, and we give you all the love you can receive.

Thank you, Mums. Happy Mother’s Day !
