As 2014 comes to an end, it marks the end to the 10th year for Big City Moms. We could not have had a decade as spectacular and memorable as it has been without our wonderful Big City Moms community. From the expectant moms and dads that we meet at the dinners and Biggest Baby Showers, to the new baby photos we see using the gear you received at our events, to the wonderful companies we work with, we are so incredibly thankful for all of you!
One of the favorite parts of our job is meeting soon-to-be “Big City Moms” when host our super popular Biggest Baby Showers in major cities across the country. This year, we were fortunate to produce Showers in Miami, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Boston and of course, our two local Showers in New York City. In 2014 we celebrated our 26th Biggest Baby Shower. We met almost 5,000 of you and we loved every minute of it. Because of your welcoming smiles and your “glow” — you continue to inspire us each and every day and we are very thankful to every one of you. We can’t wait to meet even more of you in 2015!
Our Biggest Baby Showers were filled with so many notable speakers that shared with us their invaluable knowledge. The time that they took to share their experiences and help us all become better parents is truly a gift!
And even if we didn’t get a chance to say “hi” in person this year, we loved being able to chat with you online!
Each year our social media community grows and we are constantly amazed by the people that we interact with. Hearing from you everyday makes our job so much more exciting. Knowing we have your support from all across the country gives us the inspiration we need to make Big City Moms grow into something bigger and better!
Our Facebook community has made us laugh and cry with your responses to the questions of the day. Our Instagram community makes us smile with all of the photos you share of your time at our events or the new Big City Babies that you have welcomed this year. We love the daily conversations we have with you on Twitter and are so inspired by all of you on our Pinterest page!
We launched the Big City Moms Blog this year and it has been filled with so much amazing content that all parents can relate to. Our talented contributors make us feel like we are not alone in our highs and lows of parenthood. They’ve answered some of our most asked questions as parents and have also shared some of their struggles that they’ve faced. From telling us what parenthood is really like, to helping ease our fears about things our new baby does, and even sharing with us how much we need that support from fellow parents, they have created content that make us feel a little bit less alone in this journey that we call parenthood.
As this decade of Big City Moms comes to a close, we want to thank those that are most important to us – YOU! We could have never imagined how much of an impact you could have on our lives. But now, 10 years later, we have you to thank for changing our lives for the better. When you come to our Expectant Events, Biggest Baby Showers, New Mom Support Groups, and even chat with us online looking for support and knowledge to help you on your upcoming endeavour as new parents, but what you don’t realize is that you are helping us become better parents as well. And for that, we are forever grateful.
From all of us at Big City Moms, HAVE A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR!
SEE YOU IN 2015!
