• Why Our Moms Are The Best - Part 2

    “Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.” —George Eliot

    With Mother's Day just a few weeks away, we're showering the Page Stationery staff moms with lots of love this month. This week we introduce the beautiful faces of Page Stationery Director Katie's mother, Peggy; Sales and Marketing Manager Katelyn's mama, Lore; and Web Designer Bryce's mom, Beth. Find out why we are so lucky to call these women our mothers!

    WHAT KATIE SAID ABOUT HER MOTHER

    Your Mother’s Name: Peggy AKA "Momma Schaeff"

    Describe your mom in three words: Strong, Generous, AMAZING

    Best thing you ever learned from your mother: To be myself always, and to trust my intuition it will always lead you in the right direction. My mother always made it very safe for me to take risks, so I know how important it is to make others feel the same when I can.

    Top 3 reasons your mom is the Best Mom Ever:

    1. She gives the best hugs! And I love her scent.
    2. Her strength and support never waivers, no matter what and with no judgment. (Especially, when I've gotten into trouble.)
    3. She makes me laugh and just being around her makes me happy. I mean I just moved 3,000 miles from a very sunny California life so I could get daily fixes of my mom! #peggyrocks!

    WHAT KATELYN SAID ABOUT HER MOTHER

    Your Mother’s Name: Lore (pronounced Lori), or Madre, or Mamasita, or Mamason - she answers to many names!

    Describe your mom in three words: Creative, Strong, and Loving

    Best thing you ever learned from your mother: To see beauty in your everyday surroundings. She’s the first to point out a beautiful sunset, to revel in a hug, and to express her enjoyment in any given moment. She is an incredibly warm, caring individual with a deep appreciation for life. She's taught me to observe those little moments - to actually feel gratitude. There's an amazing by-product of focusing on the positive things in life: happiness. That's not to say I'm always happy and don't have hard times, it's just that when a dark cloud forms, I've learned from my mom to step back to try to see the silver lining.

    Top 3 reasons your mom is the Best Mom Ever:

    1. My mom is very down to Earth and intuitively empathetic. She can sense when a hug or an encouraging note is needed.
    2. She makes this pretzel bark that is OUT OF THIS WORLD, and basically is the best cook ever known in the history of motherhood.
    3. She is magnetic because not only is she sweet, she’s smart like a whip and has a bright sense of humor. She can talk about all kinds of things intelligently and she's fun to converse with (plus she’s always got a glass of wine waiting for me)!

    WHAT BRYCE SAID ABOUT HIS MOTHER

    Your Mother’s Name: Elizabeth AKA Beth

    Describe your mom in three words: Sweet, Goofy, and Thoughtful

    Best thing you ever learned from your mother: How to give a thoughtful gift.

    Top 3 reasons your mom is the Best Mom Ever:

    1. She pursues her dreams.
    2. She laughs at my bad jokes.
    3. She sends me notes.
