On July 27, 2013 after a long and hard road, my life officially began as a Mommy. Once we conceived in October of 2012, my whole focus became baby, and when I found out in February 2013 that we were having a girl, Makena Lane started to become a daydream of mine. My Mom couldn't wait for me to become a Mom myself..unfortunately she never was able to celebrate with me as she was struck with early onset alzheimer's and then passed away when I was seven months pregnant. We shared a love of design and fashion…and I knew once I was pregnant that I wanted to honor her memory and the Mom she was to my sisters and me. One way was designing and making all of Makena's nursery bedding with my older sister, Heather (just as Mom had designed and made all of our bedding as babies). She always dreamed of having her own children's store. I have always shared this passion with my Mom, and I can't wait to start sharing my love of creative design through clothing and furnishings, but also sharing what is working for me and my family. As of January 2017, we have officially launched our own line of dresses and accessories designed by me, Shannon, Makena Lane Originals! Our plan is to release new styles every couple of months with three release so far! Don't miss them on our shop now tab under ML Originals!
