Happy Monday! I've got something super exciting to share today :)
Yesterday was Father's Day (obviously) and it was extra special this year since it was Cameron's first one! It's been so awesome watching him really embrace the role of being a dad these past 6 months, and seeing the love he has for our son touches my heart like nothing else. Yesterday, he got to spend a little "me" time doing something he enjoys (mountain biking) in the morning and then we had a barbecue with his family in the afternoon, and it was a nice way to celebrate! I'm so thankful for all the awesome dads in life - my wonderful dad in Michigan, my grandpa, uncles, father-in-law, brother-in-laws and friends with kids - they're all men that love their families and it mkes me happy that Henry will grow up around all these positive examples of fatherhood.
So yesterday was all about celebrating the dads, but today, it's all about that mamas!
I recently had the chance to make a new "mom friend" here in Portland and she's working on a project that I am so genuinely pumped about! My friend Mary is creating a magazine called Momma Bear that's all about focusing on all of the amazing, positive things about motherhood. I'm not going to try and go into a ton of detail explaining the concept here because she's done a really fabulous job of that on the Momma Bear website, but basically it so perfectly captures how I feel about my current season of life.
She's striving to create a beautiful print version of this magazine and I know that as a mom, it's something that I'd really love to have. Not only that, but I think it's something that's so needed because I can't think of anything else like this out there in the market today.
Momma Bear is currently doing a Kickstarter to raise the funding they need to make this project happen, and they only have until the end of this month to reach their goal! Check out their lovely video for a better idea of what Momma Bear is all about...
Mary didn't ask me to write this post, I'm simply doing it because motherhood is something I'm so passionate about and I think the heart of Momma Bear perfectly captures how I feel. I'd definitely encourage you to give to their Kickstarter if you feel so inclined because I'd love to see this awesome idea become a reality!
