The story of emme is a piece of my own story
Hello, I am Macy! A creative immigrant mom passionate about design, families and feminine power. I am the hands and heart behind emme. Back in 2013 I was the mom of a toddler and a preschooler. I had been an immigrant for two years and had been out of the corporate world for almost three. I was a stay-home-mom with everything to succeed, but I was failing tremendously at it.
Every day at 5 pm I felt like the walls of my home started to close into me like a prison. By that time, I would begin my kid’s bath and dinner routine feeling like the most miserable and entrapped woman in the world. I was full of negative feelings, regrets, and complaints that were hurting my ability to be a loving mother and a good partner.
I needed urgently to change my course… but my vision was blurred
One day organizing my closet, I found a pair of earrings that belonged to my Abuela Olga. They were a beautiful pair of big and bold green hoops. When I picked them up in my hands I immediately remembered what she always said:
That day I decided to wear the earrings to pick up my kids from daycare, and everyone had something sweet to say about them. The next day, I wore the same earrings with a pair of cute shoes that were also forgotten in my closet. The third day I wore the earrings, the shoes, and a girly dress and went out to sign up for an English conversation class...
I did not know at the time, but that was the start of a new me. Little by little I started to feel right about my day, and at the same time, the 5 pm nightmare begun to fade away.
A lot of self-discovery and emotional work have happened since then, but I still remember vividly the awakening moment that started with that pair of earrings. That small flame of empowerment started the course that helped me regain the energy to be a better me, a happy mom and a joyful partner.
The same empowering flame sparked emme
