In the Tory Blog’s third annual Mother’s Day series, we’re celebrating our moms all week long. Every day, designers, actors, bloggers and other experts will share memories and great advice. Here, Tory talks about what being mom to three boys has taught her:

1. Have fun. Children have fun no matter where they are. They create fun and live in the moment.
2. Take risks. My boys are not afraid to try new things. They know they might not catch the perfect wave the first time, but they will eventually.
3. Be curious. My children are always asking “Why?” Don’t ever stop asking why…or who, what, when, how.

    Huge fan from Beirut Lebanon. Love ur style & have several TB pieces. But think u should know items retail locally at a huge premium like the Robinson double zip tote @ $870 ($575 online), Reena blouse $420… which kind of beats affordability claim.
