We couldn’t be happier to announce that Bloom: A Celebration of Motherhood is coming to Columbus!  We will be joining many of our Sister Sites across the country to host an event Just. For. You!  That’s right, this mom-centered event will feature businesses, speakers, and food that all aim to make moms’ lives easier and better.  This mama-only event will be a fun evening to spend with your sisters, moms, and friends simply focusing on YOU, because you, dear mama, deserve it!  

Since this event is all about YOU, please take the time to yourself and leave kiddos at home (all except for those sweet little nurslings – but please plan to carry or wear that tiny one as there won’t be much room for strollers).


Columbus Moms Blog is all about the moms (we are moms after all!), and we look forward to seeing you soon! 

Don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEWSLETTER and follow along on the Bloom Facebook event page to be the first to receive updates and purchase tickets.
