With Mother's Day fast approaching, we thought we'd celebrate the best Mums in the world - Team SW Mums! Really, we just wanted an excuse for our Mums to go searching through old photo albums...
Scroll down to see some of our best Mum memories, as we share just why we love them so much.

ROSALIE - PR & COMMUNICATIONS EXECUTIVE
I love my Mum because... she is a freaking inspiration! Juggles 4 kids, a household, her own 20 year old business (!!!) that comes with 30+ employees and still manages to jet set around the world. She's the kind of woman who will never be told no and refuses to be confined by any rules or societal norms; she cooks, cleans AND mows lawns all the while putting her family first and being my number one supporter and advocate…also she makes the best chicken noodle soup ever.
NATASHA - CUSTOMER CARE ADVISOR
I love my Mum because... she is my best friend and is always there for me no matter what.
KATIE - ONLINE & CUSTOMER CARE
I love my Mum because... she is a powerhouse. From an early age I knew 2 things; the best clothes were always in her wardrobe (I still raid her closet to this day), and that I should be myself, in whatever ridiculously dressed, pet rock befriending (true story), perpetually mind changing, spontaneous show tune singing, sometimes-blue-haired, shape that may take. Her support for my brother and I and our life choices has never faltered (regardless of whether she agreed with them). She has instilled in us the importance of being kind, good eyewear, (and more importantly Elvis Presley) and I will be forever grateful for the strong, vivacious presence she is in my life. I love her to the moon and back.
JESS - DIGITAL CONTENT & COMMUNITY MANAGER
I love my Mum because... she is the most selfless person I've ever met. She is always putting everyone before herself (and with three girls, that's not an easy feat!) while working full time & having studied again at 50. She has instilled in us the importance of kindness & hard work, and the art of doing it with many laughs along the way. She is always there for a late night Face Time chat, and makes the best ever, SW HQ famous Anzac Biscuits (and has even posted them from Adelaide to Sydney once or twice!). I couldn't have asked for a better Mum.
KENDYLL - INTERNATIONAL & AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMER RELATIONS MANAGER
I love my Mum because... life doesn’t come with a manual it comes with a mum. I am so lucky to have such a loving, strong, selfless and supportive mum who has always been there for me no matter what.
NAT - SALES & VM SUPPORT
I love my Mum because... she is full of love and is always the first and last one on the dance floor!
LAUREN - CUSTOMER RELATIONS
I love my Mum because... she is kind, caring and generous to anyone she meets, and most of all because she taught me everything I know.
JESS - TECHNICAL DESIGN CO-ORDINATOR
I love my Mum because... she’s always there to love, support and give me guidance. She’s an incredible woman and I aspire to be like her.
KATHY - PRODUCTION & LOGISTICS MANAGER
I love my Mum because... she always knows when I need a hug. She has more patience than I will ever have, and is constantly there for every “How to?” phone call; no matter how obscure my question might be, she undoubtedly has the answer. She is my protector, my friend; invariably my Mum and I love her.
SAMANTHA - CREATIVE DIRECTOR
I love my Mum because... she has taught me strength, integrity & the value of working hard. As a child, you are very selfish, but as an adult, you look back & see everything that your Mum gave up for you, all the weekend sport games she drove you to & from, the late nights she would stay up to make sure you had what you needed for school the next day, all the meals cooked and all the cleaning up after everyone else just went to do their own thing. The unconditional care & love; she always put everyone else first. I think she is remarkable.
TOM - ART DIRECTOR
I love my Mum because... she supports me in EVERYTHING I do, including me moving to the other side of the world. Plus she rocks a legendary lacquered perm, and she used to dress me in massively oversized polo shirts... possibly my Dad’s.
ADRIANA - E-COMMERCE MANAGER
I love my mum because... she has the kindest heart and has always fully supported me in everything I have ever done (even moving to Australia!). So loving, so giving, a true heart of gold! Love and miss you mum xxx
LARA - NATIONAL VM MANAGER
I love my mum because... she empowered me to live a creative life my own way.
