Happy Mother’s Day!

With this being my first Mother’s Day, I wanted to express one of my favorite quotes about motherhood.


“The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children.” -Elaine Heffner

Parenting is the opportunity to teach something.  Because, in teaching our children, we teach ourselves.  Everyday I’m reminded to “just smile” and “be happy” and “say thank you” and “except the challenges” and “be present.”

Believe me there are tough days and amazing days for us all, but it is important that I remind myself of these challenges, so that I can teach my child how to live a more vulnerable, true, and happy life!

To me, motherhood is…

a gift

an honor

a sacrifice



life changing


most rewarding


I’d love to celebrate Mother’s Day in a more personal FITmama way and highlight our favorite things about being a mom.  You are encouraged to join the conversation and submit your photo! Here are some of mine:

To all the mamas out there, have a wonderful Mother’s Day.  I know how much my own mama paved the road for my motherhood journey.  I realize now having my own child just how much she did, and how much she loved us.  Thanks to all Moms for inspiring us!
