Happy New Year, Mama!

2022 was a year, wasn’t it? And though it was certainly marked by challenges, it also brought many blessings. Babies were born, kids graduated from high school and college, and many of us enjoyed more connection with our families and communities. We traveled, started businesses, and seized opportunities for personal growth. 

Here at Miami Mom Collective, we are passionate about encouraging, empowering, and equipping local moms. So as we look back on this last year, we are thankful for YOU. Whether you’ve browsed our site, engaged with us on Instagram or Facebook, or attended one of our events, you’ve helped to grow our community and we are so grateful!

So to celebrate, we’ve decided to take a look back at our top 5 resource guides and top 5 blog posts of 2022. Grab a cup of coffee (yes, there’s a guide for that too), sit back, and revisit our most popular posts from this last year. We hope you enjoy them!
