Currently, Marmee hosts pop-up events and is Facebook group.

I’m Joy, the creator of Marmee – Nest Away From Nest. Hello and welcome! Marmee was inspired by the social spirit of my dad (who I lost in 2014) and the need for one on one connections with people. Being a stay-at-home mom, browsing the net and watching oodles of TV lead me to search for something more. I wanted to make a change and interact with others who desired to do something outside of the comfort of their own home. Enter Marmee!

the name…

 

I choose this word to represent the brand because of it’s double meaning. The spelling comes from my favorite classic book, Little Women. In a letter to the NY Times editor regarding the article Marmee DearestI discovered the pronunciation to be “mommy” with a silent “r”

“The Greek meaning of the name Marmee is shining. People with this name have a deep inner desire to inspire others in a higher cause, and to share their own strongly held views on spiritual matters.”

end goal = the nest

 

The original concept I envisioned was for Marmee to exist as a brick and mortar lifestyle boutique lounge. Not only would the space be a haven for moms, but a place for women to celebrate life’s nesting moments. From bachelorette to baby showers and beyond, I want Marmee to serve as a hybrid event space that would also be home to a variety of classes set with food, fitness and fashion themes in mind. This allows us to embrace new skills and befriend others who hold the same interests.
