Our co-founder and chief inspiration officer, Ali Mejia, spends her days balancing design, motherhood, and the everyday wellness practices that keep her going. The busier she gets, the more emphasis she places on slowing down, so it comes as no surprise that her ideal Mother’s Day is simply spent relaxing at home with her family.
Get inspired to pamper the special woman in your life and whip up Ali’s favorite pancake and latte recipes for a decadent breakfast every mom deserves.
Brunch In Bed
There’s nothing more pampering than feeling like I ordered room service from one of my favorite boutique hotels. It also brings me back to childhood memories of El Salvador where I enjoyed Sunday breakfast in bed with my mom. I look forward to spending the day with her and my girls.
Relaxing By The Pool
Moms live for those little moments of calm. Putting on some breezy resort wear and heading to the pool helps me mentally disconnect, instantly transporting me into vacation mode. It reenergizes me, gives me focus, and recharges my batteries for whatever lies ahead.
Quality me time grounds me in a way that helps me be more present for my family and more empathetic and emotionally supportive to my girls.
Family Movie Night
I love a cozy backyard movie night watching classic movies with my family. Create a setting enticing enough that they can’t resist and make their favorite snacks and drinks. Of course, no family movie night is complete without matching PJ’s that make it that much more fun.
