May MUSE Maca Atencio is the creative director and fashionable founder of online style destination, Hey Maca. The first of her four HOLR features this month shares her musings on motherhood.
It’s been 5 years since I was first able to call myself a mama, and to me, this Ode to Life is one of the most important ones I’ve done to date.
I’m celebrating the joy of having Nico and Oli, all the hilarious things I discover with them, and how my days are passing so fast seeing them grow more and more.
I’m humbled I am lucky enough to be your mom and with all the ups and downs, I would never change a bit because you are the most joyful memories I’ll ever have.
Happiest Mother’s Day and enjoy this Ode to Life, mamas!
Even though I cannot forget what you did in This is Us, I gotta thank your existence every single night.
