Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms and moms-to-be! We hope your day is spent being pampered and taken care of. In honor of moms, we have dedicated our May issue to you! We have over $700 in giveaways just for Moms, see page 6 and enter on our facebook page. Sometimes it isn’t a gift that’s special, but rather the gift of time. On page 14, we have tips for creating moments for yourself. We all get busy and sometimes just need to take the time to relax.
Speaking of busy, check out our Busi-Moms feature on page 8! Being a mom is already a full time job, and many women add juggling a business too. We talked to local business moms who did just that and started an ice rink, indoor playground, art and dance studio, theatre and photography business from the ground up. Maybe it will inspire you to be a Busi-Mom as well.
Over a year and a half ago, I was also inspired and launched PB Parenting. After many years of working in advertising and publication, I decided to launch my own magazine. When my family moved to Palm Beach County three years ago, I noticed a need for local parenting information. I am always researching and looking for new things to do or places to take the kids and I am happy that I can now share all that information with our readers. We are run entirely by moms. PB Parenting wouldn’t be the publication it is today without the help of my staff especially my Advertising Director, Jennifer Preville, also a mom of two, with a background in magazine advertising. She equally shares my passion for publications and family. Together, we are juggling 2 kids each all under 5 years old, magazine deadlines, school drop off, sick days and more. But we have a great time and balance each other out . With my creative side, Jennifer’s business side and the help of our new Account Executives Abbie and Courtney (also moms), we make an excellent team!
Happy Mother’s Day!
