Motherhood - Treasure Tree Boutique


May 15, 2021

Written by Katherine Thomas

Motherhood changes you. You go from being this blissfully care free person, to bringing a baby blanket to work with you just so you can smell it. I remember feeling like my heart was literally going to break in two when I had to return to work. I remember being so extremely grateful for the time that I was able to spend with my new little one, and soaking up every second. I remember reflecting on how valuable time is, and thinking about how I wanted to spend the time I have. I loved my baby SO much, and I knew that if I was going to spend most of my time working for a paycheck- I wanted it to be worth it. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to help people. I had so many ideas, and I wanted to be somewhere that I could use those ideas.


I decided that I had to try something, and that if it all blows up in smoke, my parents wouldn’t let me be homeless. I went to Books-a-million and bought a book about business and got to googling. I was like a sponge, and I tried to soak up every bit of information I could get my hands on. I would put my baby to bed at night and spend hours googling until I couldn’t hold my eyes open any longer.


Just like motherhood, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to.

I just LOVE a good idea. It really doesn’t take much to light my fire. All it takes is one little spark..... and I’ve broken it down into 10 mini-goals, imagined what it will look like, and felt the joy that it will bring to everyone- all within .5 seconds.
