Growing up, my mom was my hero and my best friend. She was a woman of service and ambition. She taught me to be strong and be true to myself. My absolute favorite thing to do with her was shopping. We could shop for hours mostly just to be together sharing some laughs. When she passed away in 2016, I slipped into a deep depression, making it difficult to manage the day to day and be a mother to my own children. I hope to honor her by being a strong mother to my own children, and one way I knew I could keep her memory alive was to start a business she would have been proud of and enjoy working on with me. In 2020, Magnolia Street Boutique was born. We provide affordable comfort and style with a target market of busy moms like me. I love making other moms feel beautiful and special each day. I’m a proud wife to my husband Joe for 10 years and mother of 3 (Joe Jr. 8, Maya 5, Georgia 2). We reside in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
