Mom. A loaded name for a woman with so many roles: Mentor, friend, teacher – or on a really good day, super hero – these women shape minds and worlds. Moms aspire to inspire and push their children to create their best life. What’s funny is, moms learn just as much from their children, if not more. But don’t forget, in the end, mother knows best!
Silpada celebrates mother, daughter duo, Carrie Brigham and Emily Diederich. “My mom has always been the most Silpada-ish woman I know; loving, fun, inspiring and so stylish,” says Emily. Emily started with Silpada, and six years and a move 750 miles away, her mom was inspired to join with her. “I can’t imagine my life without Silpada, and it’s all thanks to her,” says Carrie.
“As her Sponsor, sometimes it feels like our roles have reversed, but I feel like I am able to give back and help her in small ways for all the incredible things she has done for me,” says Emily. “It has given us more time together, so many laughs and a special bond that only Silpada girls can know!”
Carrie and Emily can add “Silpada Woman” to their growing roles. Happy Mother’s Day!
