Last Friday we held our very first GRACE TALKS event in Sydney’s Centennial Park…
What was it all about? The struggle, the juggle and the joy of motherhood. We talked about, well, pretty much everything because when it comes to motherhood, there’s nothing better than talking to like-minded women. This motherhood gig isn’t easy – it’s without question the best thing you’ll ever do, but it’s also ok to admit that there are times when it’s also the hardest.
Host Georgie Abay was joined by four incredible speakers – Courtney Adamo from Babyccino and Somewhere Slower (she had only just flown in from Los Angeles with her five children – did someone say #supermom), Prue Gilbert from Grace Papers, author Lauren Sams and Eat Fit Food founder Bianca Monley. Talk about a stellar line-up of speakers.
They all shared their inspiring words of wisdom with us from how to handle toddler meltdowns (Bianca from Eat Fit Food gets everyone to stop and take three deep breaths – we’re going to try this one), to how they approach digital devices around children to how to build a business from scratch.
