The last year has certainly been an exciting rollercoaster ride, as I started a momstown chapter in London, while balancing the everyday demands of my own young family. This past year has been full of learning, laughing and a few tears, but I am so fortunate to always have the full support of my family, my local London networks and ofcourse my momstown family!
This past weekend our momstown team of owners from across Canada came together for our bi-annual conference. We met at the beautiful Fern Resort, which on a side note is an absolute paradise, and ofcourse we did not go without!
Starting the weekend off with an amazing race activity we were energized not only by each other, but by our serene surroundings as well. Our business building race led us to the beach at sunset where we built momstown sandcastles and had to pitch our designs to the judges.
The whole weekend was full of learning, great lessons, and innovative idea conversations. Although our conferences always hold a strong business focus, they certainly do not lack fun as well. Thanks to our amazing sponsors Walmart Canada, Hot Wheels, Now for Mothers and Amarula we started the weekend with plenty of swag!
My biggest take home from the conference was the encouragement given out and received! As business owners this is something that is appreciated and helps to energize us to make our individual communities even better. More importantly as mothers, this is a lesson that can be applied to all of the families that are part of the momstown community. We need to encourage and celebrate each others accomplishments as women and parents! There are no judgements in our momstown London community, as we are all just real moms, united on our journey through parenthood. As part of the national momstown community, this message holds true, and we can be proud and celebrate the fact that being perfectly imperfect is more than enough!
Your doing a great job mom! Don't forget to pay it forward and encourage another mom today! #momstownlove
As for momstown London, stay tuned for many exciting additions over the next 12 months!
