Puck & Karin
"You make me love the beauty in the world, and gave me the confidence to become a proud mother to my daughter."
Both mother & daughter agree “at this age our relationship is completely different from how it used to be, it almost feels more like a friendship. Of course, we'll always be mother and daughter, but this just adds another layer to it. We share the most important moments of our lives with each other, and come to think of it, we’ve probably always done that.”
Puck recently gave birth to her own daughter, Lou. “Now that I’m a mum myself, I’m starting to realise how much I actually learnt from my own mother, things you normally wouldn’t think of. I hope to teach my own child about all the qualities and values my mother taught me, like positivity, kindheartedness and unconditional love. All the cliches are true!” Puck also credits her mum for life lessons such as always doing things in your own way & taking the time to be proud of yourself.
Enjoy the little things
“Our relationship is characterised by a shared appreciation for the small moments in life as well as all the beautiful and important moments”, says Karin. “We both find so much joy in little things like a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the dinner table, or a delicious coffee and cake moment; as long as you experience these moments with each other or other loved ones, you won’t need much else.”
”Both Karin and Puck cherish the memories from shared adventures, travels and family holidays. Karin: “The memories we have of these trips are so beautiful, and no one can take them away from us.” Puck adds that her most cherished recent moment has to be her pregnancy. “My pregnancy brought us even closer to each other. Everyone is getting ready for a new role, we’re not just experiencing the birth of a new baby, we’re also getting a new mother and grandma, and those new roles are so beautiful.” Which is why Puck is gifting her mum a piece of initial jewellery for Mother’s Day. “A really personal gift that we can both wear forever: a powerful link between 3 different generations.”
