Dispatches from our Founder Patricia and other Matriark’s guests about everything that touches the lives of our community.
This Fall, Theresa Roden and Bridget LeRoy will host conversations with incredible women that I am sure will leave you inspired. Theresa, Bridget and our guests will be physically at Matriark (socially distancing), and we will stream these free chats on INSTAGRAM LIVE AND FACEBOOK LIVE. You can pick the platform that you like the best (we will be simultaneously streaming on both), and watch from the comfort of your own home.
How was your week? My was crazy busy and frazzled, with my daughter's birthday, trying to plan for a possible reopen (who known when and how!) and a lot of work. But all good otherwise, and started this week on a good note, inspired by the world of fragrances.
When I was pregnant, I learned that babies can smell their mother from two feet away. Turns out that their nasal cavities are developed early in the womb, and that in the first few days after birth, moms produce a sweat with similar scent to the amniotic fluid.
My daughter Sophie will be 9 years old this Saturday, which means cake, candles, and a quarantine birthday party with no guests (and this time, per her request, both Ron and I are making the cake. Cross your fingers). It's been almost 9 years since I've first been called "mom", and so much has changed since. And yet, a lot hasn't. While I have countless dreams that now revolve around my 2 kids and a husband, I also have others that don't.
