THE WAIST APRON
“Ubi has successfully captured the San Francisco history of denim work clothing in the Mi Cocina Collection. My favorite is the half apron in raw denim. It’s feels like something a shop worker would be wearing during the Gold Rush.”
THE CLASSIC APRON
“We’re proud to stock Ubi-Ind goods which are both high quality and well-designed. The cross-backed aprons are certainly a shop favorite.
Sometimes motherhood takes a little bit of luck
Or at least that's what Giulietta Octavia believes, especially when she decided in her early 30s to become a mom— right in the middle of her education to become an acupuncturist, a lifelong goal. And at eight and half months pregnant, Giulietta took her State Board Exams.
"I felt like she was my lucky charm," she explains. "I sailed through the exams, knowing I had a bigger project. I got the letter that I passed shortly after my daughter, Hazel, was born. It's kind of like my professional life and my life as a mother, started at the same time." Now Hazel is fifteen, and every day, Giulietta says, is a gift of getting to know another person. Between school and work, Giulietta and Hazel find time to cook dinner and garden together. They also enjoy the occasional hot tub in the back yard and talk about life.
"Hazel is a pretty dreamy, measured, and thoughtful person. I tend to be fast, mercurial, impatient. She helps me slow down and chill out," says Giulietta.
"To me, being a parent is to be in a dynamic, intimate conversation with another, together yet a separate person. As she grows, I grow and strive to meet her where she is. It's sweet, imperfect and makes me feel vulnerable but strong and alive. So glad I made the leap."
"And she has always been my lucky charm." ;)
