While living in New York, I discovered that the options for educational classes and social events for pregnant women and mothers were seemingly endless, but often pricey. After moving from
New York to Tampa with my husband and five-month old baby girl Alexandra in tow, I found that meeting other mothers could be a time-consuming, costly and
sometimes intimidating process. There are a number of mommy and me class choices, many of which we
tried out, but most of the
choices were limited to one theme and left little time for moms to get to know one another.
So, what's a mom, or mom-to-be, to do???
I started small fry society as a way to integrate my love of people, places,
planning, pregnancy and parenthood. With
a background in corporate marketing and event planning of all shapes and sizes for adults and children in
the corporate, non-profit and "friends and family" sectors for more than 10 years, I was looking to
create a business that would marry my new role of mother with my desire to
create unique educational, social, creative and fun experiences for
mothers and their babies and expectant mothers in the Tampa Bay area. In our continuing tough economic times, I also wanted to help support businesses in their marketing efforts towards the growing family demographic. With my family by my side to support me along the way, and a number of phenomenal partner businesses, small fry society and bun in the oven bunch were born in 2011.
Let the socials begin!
