Mother, salon owner and lifelong Space Coast resident, Tiffany Rosenfield is happy that she can raise her two boys in the town where she grew up and made so many wonderful memories. “I love capturing pictures of them that my parents captured of me in the exact same spots. I truly enjoy how small of a town it is and everyone being familiar with everyone. I love saying hi to the moms and dads I went to school with when walking through my child’s school.” She also adds that living in close proximity to the beach is the added bonus to living on the Space Coast with her “energetic boys!”
As a salon owner, she is on call seven days a week, meaning it can be easy for her to fall into a stressful routine. However, she shares that being a mother gives her opportunities to enjoy little things that can be so easily missed. “Honestly, one of the best parts of being a mother is the genuine laughter and smiles that they give me daily, which in everyday life of work and routines tend to be forgotten.” “I live for seeing them grow into great human beings and watching all of their accomplishments, no matter how big or small!” Of course, while she’s thankful for the life she lives, she shares that being a working mother comes with “mommy guilt.”
As being a mom is its own job, having to balance between her role as a mother and her role as a salon owner can be difficult, but she reminds all mothers that “we are doing amazing” and not to be too tough on themselves.
For Rosenfield, being a mother has a lot to do with teaching and shaping the future. “I am teaching them to take on our society with knowledge and respect, while also teaching them the skills to cope and educate others on making the world a better place.” She adds, “The most important part of being a mom is teaching and showing [my kids] how to love and care for one another.”
As a Space Coast native, Sara enjoys using her love of writing to speak directly to the community that raised her. She graduated from Florida State University with a B.A. in English, and has written for a variety of magazines; however, her love for publishing and writing developed as a young girl, when she received her first copy of Teen Vogue. When she isn't writing or at work, she is traveling around the state with friends, visiting coffee shops, going to live shows and brushing up on her photography skills.
