This Mother’s Day, Take a Mom Moment

momentousmom wall

Mothers are truly remarkable. Day in and day out they pour their hearts into caring for others. And while being a mom is one of the single most rewarding responsibilities in the world, it’s no secret that it’s tough work.

As a mom, it’s important to find the time to pause and take a moment for yourself. So this Mother’s Day, we’re doing something a little different. We’re not asking you to share photos of your littles or what you love most about motherhood, or even talk about your best mom hacks—in fact, we want you to put all of those thoughts aside.

Instead, we want to celebrate the quiet moments in between. Whether it’s the 30 minute drive into work each morning tuned into your favorite podcast, the weekly yoga class you look forward to, your monthly date night with the girls, or a relaxing bath just because, what does restoration look like for you?

We asked the moms of Tea to share what ‘me’ time looks like for them, and we’re inviting you to share your own inspiration.

Now through May 13th, share the ways you like to take a moment for yourself. Tag your ‘grams with #momentousmom for a chance to win a fabulous pampering prize pack.

International Women’s Day: Celebrating Our Leading Ladies

Leigh Rawdon and Emily Meyer

As a clothing company founded by women, we are surrounded by superwomen every day. And every day we at Tea work hard to create meaningful clothes that tell a story, spark curiosity, and empower our little citizens of the world to not only think big, but think beyond themselves… and be their very best selves.

In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, let us take a moment to celebrate all of the amazing women out there… the fearless leaders who paved the way for women’s rights and made it possible for young girls and women to stand tall and proud today; the courageous matriarchs who instilled that sense of confidence, purpose and belonging; and the future change-makers who will continue to break down barriers and set forth new ideas.

CEO, champion of dinner time, trusted adviser, hug healer—a woman’s super powers come in so many forms… so we’ve asked a handful of our little citizens to tell us what a superwoman means to them. Here’s what they had to say…

Girls Holiday Dresses

Old, new, tried-and-true: every year, families across the globe come together to ring in the holidays with their own unique blend of traditions. This season, in an effort to take a slightly different approach to celebrating, Sara Arrington, Tea mom and blogger of Little Bits of Us, is here to share her list of ten holiday traditions to try.

DIY Snow Globe

Snow globes date back to the early 19th century in France. In 1889, a snow globe containing a model of the newly built Eiffel Tower was produced to commemorate the International Exposition in Paris. Snow globes became popular in England and in the early 1920s, crossed the Atlantic to the US where they became a popular collectors item.

In the 40s, the snow globes became a way to advertise. In the 50s, the glass objects became available in plastic. Today’s globes can be found with music boxes, internal lights and moving parts. In this DIY, you’ll learn how to assemble a simple mason jar snow globe. 

Pioneering Peace: Celebrating #PeaceDay

Historically, peace is often memorialized by international and domestic negotiations, compromises, and diplomacy, marked by extensive legal agreements decorated with the autographs of world leaders. However, peace is not always defined by monumental events, rather, it is made of micro-moments… moments of trust, respect, empathy, and compassion.

At the end of the day, peace is much more than a treaty. Peace is about being able to see one another and recognizing that no matter what language we speak, what we look like, or where we come from, we all share more commonalities than differences. It’s celebrating those common threads that weave us all together, allowing us to understand and appreciate each other.

At Tea, we believe in peace for all little citizens of the world! As we travel, whether across the street or around the world, we keep our eyes—and our hearts—wide open. Wherever we are, wherever we go, we strive to be mindful and responsible, to make real connections—and a real difference.

Spring Celebrations: Party Planning DIY’s for Little Citizens

The key to helpful little ones? Make prep fun! Here are some ideas on how to get your kids involved with party planning.
