ROAR! Music Video for Mother’s Day

Remember that time I was in an Alex Boye music video?

This might sound incredibly cliche, but this was one of the most fun days of my life.

Alex is amazing.  When we first got to the studio, he told us why he wanted to do this video for us.

He told us about how he sees womanhood.  He compared women and mothers to the most graceful and beautiful swan gliding across a smooth placid lake.  Graceful and “calm” looking.


But under the surface, those feet are a machine!  And most of the time, people don’t see it.  But women work so hard to keep their families moving forward, take care of their neighbors, be a strong member of their communities, all while looking so graceful on the surface.

Alex said that this song, Roar, is all about the ‘under the surface’ side of womanhood.  He wanted us mommy bloggers to let loose and draw on our own experiences of being knocked down but getting up and showing the world our roar.

This might sound dumb, but it was a very therapeutic day for me!

The filming took place at Thanksgiving Point’s tulip festival.  It was heavenly!

Our leggings were supplied by Agnes & Dora.  Okay, get this.  They are one size fit all.  I had a really hard time wrapping my head around this.  Because, they weren’t baggy on the little ladies, and they weren’t tight on my thunder thighs.  Basically, they are magic pants.  SO comfortable and soft.  I would highly recommend them!

I’m obviously a new mom, and so I’m still learning and figuring things out.  I don’t think that ever stops.  It was so inspiring to be around other moms, and really soak in the message of the song.  YOU’RE GONNA HEAR ME ROAR!

    I’m not allowed to listen to the Roar song LOL, I don’t know what it is but my seven year old daughter hates it and screams every time to turn the song off. Cracks me up!

    • Kenz

      Really???? I wonder why she hates it so much. Every 7 year old girl I know is obsessed with Katy Perry.
