Artist Samantha Hahn, celebrates every stage of motherhood, in her new book, A Mother Is A Story: A Celebration of Motherhood. The collection, a series of exquisite watercolor illustrations, includes quotes on motherhood from Maya Angelou, Victor Hugo and more. A few of my favorites..
Said the Brooklyn-based mother of two, “After giving birth to my son, I remember looking around at women on the street and thinking, ‘Wow, you did this too!’ and having an automatic connection even with strangers,” Hahn writes in the book’s introduction, “Creating this book, I wanted to see if it were possible to portray this shared experience of motherhood in all its glorious, messy beauty.”
It’s so true what she says about that automatic connection you feel with other mothers. Most of the time it’s unspoken, which is when it’s most powerful of all. I feel privileged to feel it.

To all the mothers and mother figures out there, I wish you a beautiful Mother’s Day. xo
