Washington Family Magazine : May 2017
10 May 2017 washingtonFAMILY.com or all of the bandaged scraped knees, packed lunches, trips to soccer practice, kissed boo-boos and hugs, calendar juggling, reminders to eat veggies, early-morning wake ups, family photos and heart-to- heart chats, there is no denying that mothers work hard and make incredible sacrifices every day. With strength and a smile, moms are incredible pillars in their families, workplaces and communities. There are not enough ways to truly give them the recognition they deserve for all of their dedication. Washington FAMILY is honoring 12 local mothers with our Second Annual Moms of the Year issue. We asked our readers, staff and last year’s winners to nominate an influential and important mom in their lives they felt deserved this honor. We had an influx of entries, all describing amazing and talented local mothers. The 12 selected women have persevered, overcome, created and inspired. Each of them has a unique story to tell, and we’re excited to have the chance to share them with you. Without further ado, meet our Moms of the Year!
