We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, there’s just something about the mother of teenagers that pulls at our heartstrings extra hard. Jess Brown and her family are no exception. The famed rag doll maker, clothing designer, and author (her second book, The Making Of A Rag Doll, comes out next month) threw open the doors to her gorgeous Petaluma home to invite us into her world and that of her two children, 16-year-old Stella and 13-year-old Tiger. In addition to the stunning decor, this mama’s thoughts on motherhood are equally inspiring. Grab a cup of coffee, settle in, and enjoy.
