Who We Are

Vintage Mothers {www.thevintagemother.com} We are sisters.

We are business owners.

And we are mothers to five children, each.

We were raised in the city, deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains where the Mormon Pioneers entered the Great Salt Lake Basin.  We grew up on the doorstep of The University of Utah and both graduated with degrees in Family and Consumer Studies.

It was the perfect place to cultivate an amazing childhood, a city rich in arts and culture, family and faith.

But we spent weekends in the country at a little place called Midway, a picturesque little European-like town where childhood dreams and wonders could run free and wild. We learned how to work.  Really work.  And play.  Really play.

We are the youngest two of six children and love how much our siblings and parents have shaped our lives.  When we were both expecting our first babies {two of three grandbabies born within a month} we realized we shared a love of mothering as our Mom did.  As babies 2,3,4 and 5 came along, our closeness grew and we found ourselves more and more sharing ideas on how to purposely mother and find joy along the way.

Other than that, we’re just ordinary Moms trying to do our very best, just like you are.  We love cooking for our families but admit that we’re so grateful when takeout can save the day.  We love a clean home but realize most days it’s hard to keep up with the dishes and laundry and everything else that needs to be done.  And let us be the first to tell you that we don’t profess to be the perfect mothers, but we have a passion for wanting to become the best mothers we can be.

We’ve always had our hands dipped in all sorts of things.  Some successful.  Some not so much.  Most on purpose.

Except for this one that took us by surprise.

We will forever be grateful for this business, as we attribute the necessity and coming forth of this blog to becoming successful business owners while in the throws of motherhood.
