a new year ... a new look

As you can see I have a brand new, gorgeous banner (thank you so much Secret Agent Josephine) and a new design. In the process of explaining my story to SAJ I realized that my blog's name might be a bit mysterious, so I thought I would share with you what I shared with her.

On one of my trips to Maui (we own a time share and go every year) I saw the most incredible lotus flowers at Mama's Fish House in Paia and just fell in love with them.

So, I did some research on lotus flowers ...

The buddhist believe that the lotus flower embodies infinite potential. It symbolizes renewal, transformation and new beginnings. There are different colors of lotus flowers. The red lotus symbolizes the original nature of the heart. It is the lotus of love, compassion, passion, activity and all the qualities of the heart. To me this identified the new strange and unknown world of motherhood.

Therefore, I am the Red Lotus Mama.


  1. Yay! I'm so glad you like it. It was really fun to work on. :)

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. oooh don't you hate it when it says "comment removed by author" it sounds like "the author", whoever it is said something mean and then had second thoughts and went back and removed it. Or maybe I'm just negative like that. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that was me. I hit enter twice accidentally when posting the first comment and then I deleted it. So there is no mystery after all. But hey now there will be three comments instead of 1 which is kind of cool. I was feeling sad for this post sitting here with 0. You know I'm obsessively checking it every day because I'm so vain. Your ad revenue is going to go through the roof all because of me. Hah!

  4. Love your new banner - love the reasoning behind your name too! way to go RLM!

  5. Love the new banner. SAJ does a banner good. ;)
