The photos above are of my sister and her husband Matthew who are expecting a little boy in the next few weeks. I will be an aunt soon! and that is very exciting.

Happy day to all of you. I know that Mother’s Day can mean different things to different people. It’s not always the easiest day on the calendar for some, and I want to honor those of you who have a difficult time with this holiday. Blessings to all of the moms, the moms to be, and the moms of spirit we are surrounded by.

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    Thank you, Andrea! I received a beeeeautiful necklace in tropical shades from my super-husband and kids today. I love it… thank you.
    This is a mixed-up day for me. I am so touched to be celebrated by my Lovelies, but I deeply miss my own mother, who I lost almost 4 years ago.
    I celebrate the Mother Spirit in you, dear lady.
    fondly,
    Jen

    Oh, your sister looks like a goddess–loved and ripe and very, very happy! What a gorgeous pregnancy.
    Today I had a message on my machine from my dear artist friend who is a wonderful mother. She couldn’t stop raving about her Superhero tangerine bracelet and earrings! She said the beads were lovely, and the orange was fabulous against her eyes. She told me all the women in her family want ones now … ! 🙂
    Thank you Andrea, for the happy beauty of your jewelry, and I hope your day was as meaningful as mine was!

    Thanks Andrea,
    It can indeed be a tricky day for some…so true. In Germany for me Mother’s Day is still to come on the 12th, as always. It is for me and my mom and this year I feel a little different about it and have the feeling that something is going to change for the better if even only for a teeny bit. It was always the most burdened day for me and I hated it but am trying to change that and we will see how it goes. I will wear my superhero necklace especially on that day for sure!! 😉
    xoxo

    You have such a talent for capturing pure happiness on people’s faces. I’m always so stuck by that in the portraits you take. That’s a true gift.

    Your sister is beautiful!! I am going to be a Auntie for the 1st time in July, I am psyched!! Thank goodness my husband has siblings, since I am a only child I would never have neices or nephews on my side of the family!
    She is sooo beautiful with her radiant buddah belly!!!

  13. Caroline

    So she married a matt too! how blessed you both are, and thank you for including all in this day as everyone’s affected by it in so many ways, and not just on this one day…

  15. Jennifer

    Yes, Happy Mother’s Day to all. Andrea, I think I remember that you and your sister married very close together…it’ll be nice to be able to raise children together (and you will raise children together….

  16. Darcie

    To have you for an aunt–what a blessed child!

  17. jill

    Congratulations to your sister. And being an Aunt is one of the most treasured things that has happened to me.
    I want to thank you for writing such insightful thoughts. Each and every entry you make has such thoughtfulness and insight that I am just so always amazed.
    Considering those who might have a hard day on Mother’s day made me realize that there are so many who just breeze through that day like it’s just another holiday to celebrate. This will be my 6th mother’s day without mine and it is not easy. Ever. I do however celebrate. I celebrate my mom Pat, and her unique way of making the world around her bright and energized. She was an amazing artist, friend and mom to me. The world has seemed just a bit flat since she’s been gone, that is for sure. But I get through it all remembering her and her wonderful spirit.
    Andrea, you actually remind me a lot of her and again I just want to thank you so much for being who you are!
    (okay enough of the gushing…) Can’t wait to hear all your Auntie stories!
