On 14th June 2017 we had the pleasure of celebrating our first anniversary with a panel discussion called, “Raising Excellence” you can read more about the idea behind the panel and the awesome queens that slayed it here.

The panel was lit, there were jokes, pearls of wisdom, common issues, finger snaps and bants.  I could try to recount some gems but I won’t as the video of the event will be on her VERY soon.

In addition to the above there were thought provoking questions from the audience and mama’s sharing parts of their stories that made us high five, laugh and eye roll simultaneously.  There was also an epic cake made by Leah’s mum aka Cakes By Jem!  Oh and the wine!  More importantly real connections were made in a space where we could just be.
