Getting my sap on today for my mom’s birthday. (Her 29th birthday, in case you were wondering.)
If you’ve ever been to Arielle Shoshana on a Saturday, you’ve probably met my mom. Monday through Friday, 9 AM-9 PM, my mom is a partner at a law firm. Then, on her precious day off, she helps run the shop. My mom, who is worth well over $500 an hour, sits in the back office and washes our dishes. She runs the cash register. She built our cabinets! My mom is the heart and soul of Arielle Shoshana. We do not deserve her.
The best part is that my mom doesn’t even wear perfume! No one is more surprised than she is to find herself the co-owner of a perfume shop. But she has risen to the challenge so completely, like she always, always does. I am so proud, and so grateful. Happy birthday, Mom. I love you!
