To celebrate all the bad*ss mothers holding down the fort and still managing to raise the roof, we invited you to head to Instagram and tag photos of #onetoughmother in your life.
Congrats to our winner @naturemamareads! A self-described outdoor mama and book lady, she’s also a nursing assistant and environmental advocate. And while only one mama could win the Ortovox Fly Daypack full of tough mother worthy gear, every one of you is definitely #onetoughmother.
Check out just a few of the awesome entries we received:
