We sat down with Danielle - the mother behind Anellabees, to get to know her a little better.
What motherhood mean to you?
"Motherhood is a series of contradictions. Every day is a new opportunity to watch my children grow and see their worlds expand, yet I still miss the simplicity of when they were little. It's sad knowing that once each stage has passed, you'll never get to experience it again, but I'm even more excited to see the amazing people my children will eventually become."
What inspiration have you taken from generations of mother's before you - your mother, grandmother, great-grandmother?
"My mother has been carefully researching our family history for more than thirty years, and I've learned so much about my family legacy through her. Hearing stories about what the women who formed me have endured and how they carried their defeats, their strengths, and their joy inspires me daily as I raise my daughter. Just as my mother did for me, I want to encourage my daughter to explore her interests and develop a strong sense of self. Wherever she ends up, I want her to recognize that there is nothing more powerful than a woman who knows what she wants and has the skills to achieve it!"
How are you celebrating your mother this Mother's Day?
"I'll be with my family and my mother, of course! We plan to cherish our time together, get outside to enjoy the spring weather, and maybe check in on the queens in our beehives to wish them a happy Mother's Day of their own!"
