A dahlia has many meanings that resonate with me and my motherhood journey.
Dahlias are my loving father's favorite in the garden, and his love now lives on through my work. Dahlias were chosen to be present on my wedding day for this reason as I lost my father at the young age of 21 and wanted to honor his life and have his sweet presence their with us.
Dahlias symbolize strength in difficult times, strong emotions, and a spirit of wildness.
Give yourself permission to feel those ups and downs and in betweens as a strong, amazing, wild mama.
I think of all strong mamas as a Dahlia Mama, you, me, and your mama friends.
