Our company was founded by Julie. She married her high school sweetheart when they were 20 and 3 years later they welcomed their first little boy into the world. That was many years ago and when he was born 10 weeks prematurely and spent 2 months in the NICU, she began to search for a baby book-journal-something! to write down her thoughts and his milestones. Unable to find anything remotely her style, at the encouragement of her husband, she designed her own simply wanting to have something for herself to use. She started printing off copies from her home printer and making albums work as a baby book for shower gifts for friends and family and by God's grace, something began to flourish and Ruby Love was born.
Being a mom is an experience like no other. So many new cares and responsibilities, crazy emotions and deeper love than you simply cannot explain. The moments that you feel like you will never forget begin to be replaced with more and more moments that make your heart just want to burst. That first smile, their first word- of course those are important to remember... but she wanted to provide moms a place to not only record the big milestones, but also the beauty in the everyday life of your precious little one. Funny things they said, embarrassing stories from the newborn stage, and other precious moments. She wanted a beautiful space to write letters to your little one, reflections on each passing year- things that you never want to forget, but can be so hard to remember.
Her desire for Ruby Love was to provide a place for you. A sweet little place to help you remember. Mom brain is alive and well, we forget things! But there is something to be said for a handwritten baby book journaling your path through motherhood as a gift to your child and to yourself. We want you to remember the hard days, the long nights, the little victories that feel like impressive major accomplishments. Our Ruby Love baby book has plenty of space to pour out your heart and help you remember. There are prompts for the baby basics, but the heart of Ruby Love is you. Your family, your children, and your heart: giving to your children the gift of remembrance, something that we are so humbled to be a part of.
Julie decided she wanted to spend more time with her family, so she passed the company to us, the Zuniga family, to carry on her legacy and continue making beautiful handmade books to journal your precious memories. We’re a small family business that shares her love of children and want to continue providing that perfect space to preserve those fleeting memories that go so fast but mean so much. My name is Natalie, I'm the youngest member of the family and I take care of the day to day operations of the business with the support of my family. I have a passion for children, and love to take care of my baby niece and nephew.
