My friends and family are amazing and I am grateful for every one of them. They recently gathered for my baby shower and WaterWipes party, taking the time to celebrate the soon arrival of our third daughter. My mint, gold and black themed shower was full of good vibes, finger food, laughs from baby charades, delicious red velvet cupcakes and great people whom I consider my “village”.
While the goal of my friends and family was to see me smile and to be a blessing to our growing family, all I wanted was to provide the same love to them. During the party, I introduced many of them to WaterWipes, my favorite brand of wipes for not only babies, but the entire family. I shared with them how pure they were, containing only two ingredients–99.9% Irish Water and .1% grapefruit seed extract.
Most of the guests were moms, but I wanted to be sure not to neglect the non-moms. Although our baby has yet to arrive, I find myself using my stash of WaterWipes more each day. My guests learned they could use the wipes to remove their makeup like I do and avoid reactions to the chemicals often found in makeup removing wipes. Everyone was able to walk away with multiple packs of these chemical-free wipes. One person loved them so much that she text me her experience with them. Here’s a screenshot of the text:
Spending time with my party guests was refreshing and needed. Earlier I mentioned that my guests were “my village”. The term “village” means different things to different people. However, for me, “village” simply means support system. In my village, we are all about:
Giving and receiving encouragement–On tough days and moments in life and, especially, parenting fails, we all need to be able to provide and receive encouragement from those who have been in our situations.
Protection–Sometimes, those looking from the outside in can see things in our lives that may be causing more harm than help to us before we are able to realize. This should be reciprocated in our friendships so we can all experience less headaches.
Sharing information–Moms tend to stay “in the know”, which is why sharing information with one another about new products, research findings, sales, recipes, etc., are commonplace amongst the ladies in my village. We want the best for each other’s families, so sharing our findings only seems appropriate.
Who makes up your village?
