On Life

If you follow Lisa Congdon, you know that not only is her art bright, inspiring, positive + fun, & her style is too. She's a perfect candidate for a Mom Edit interview.
Lisa Congdon and I met a few years ago at a small creative conference here in Portland, OR. Lisa is an artist, illustrator, and author, and I've been a fan of her art and positive messages for a while. Upon meeting we realized we had some dear mutual friends one of whom, Christopher Dibble, has taken several gorgeous photos...

I wanted to read about Black joy, Black struggle, Black justice. I wanted Black voices in my fiction and non-fiction. I wanted suspense + drama + humor all written by Black authors.
The only time you will find me quiet is when I am engrossed in a book. I appear pretty outgoing -- and I can be -- but my natural state is that of a homebody. My ideal day would be spent near a crackling fire, wrapped up in a faux fur blanket, a stack of books within reach and some...
We're thrilled to introduce Chinny & excited for her posts on style, motherhood, home (she's a #PlantMom...yassss) & everything in-between.
From the moment we came across Chinny's Instagram (@chiniluv), we were smitten with her cheery feed and messaging overall. In her own words, she's here to "delight, uplift, and inspire" and we just love that. Go take a peek at Chinny's account if you haven't yet (and her blog, too) -- these values shine through every post she creates....
From yoga mats to facial massage, here's what helps me for the days when I truly #canteven, & my trusty black top + MOTHER Denim ain't cutting it.
As you now know, dear reader, (Who am I Lady Whistledown? Actually reading this in Julie Andrews' voice could be delightfully soothing). Anyway, as you now know, one of the ways I cope with my "I Just Can't Even" days (ie: Days where my autoimmune disease is causing flare ups) is by getting dressed. For real. If you missed...
All of this to say I’ll be having brain surgery soon. Which is still so freaking surreal. I mean, who has brain surgery?? (Apparently I do.)
So you guys might remember this whole facial paralysis/brain tumor thing I have. We recently took a trip down to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to meet with doctors and specialists at Michigan Medicine to figure out what the next steps will be. Our kids were just super excited to stay in a hotel and swim, and my sister-in-law (and her...
Sure 2020 brought us a pandemic, but you haven’t lived until you’ve raided your closet in your powerless, flooded home like you’re starring in a remake of "The Purge"...shivering in your faux fur leopard coat as you collect as many items as possible by the light of your dying iPhone. 2021 said hold my beer (or, in my case, Topo...
Mutual aid groups & grassroots organizations are mobilizing quickly to provide relief for Texas winter storm victims w/out water, power & homes. Let's go.
It's been hard to go about business as usual with the winter storm reports coming out of Texas. Due to unprecedented low temps -- like...seriously low...Michigan-low temps in a state that is 100% not prepared -- many Texans are currently without electricity in temperatures below 20 degrees. We've heard reports of people going to bed in freezing houses, dressed...
Our go-to, at-home workouts + any equipment we have or need, plus our favorite activewear (think adidas, Nike, Zella, Beyond Yoga & Athleta).
We love a good workout. Pre-Covid, many of us swore by exercise classes outside of the house (dance classes, barre, yoga, cycling, you name it). When we had to stay home and get creative, we learned to love new, accessible workout routines everybody can join. Personally, I can't stick to one workout for too long, so it's nice to...
How am I tryin' to stay healthy? Warm accessories, vitamins + supplements, & wholesome books + activities to keep happy + well. We got this.
Like...duh. Obviously we need to keep our health A-game up in the upcoming months. I mean - every winter brings sniffles, colds and flu, but this one is... extra special. (Wink.) So it's more important than ever to stay safe and healthy as we dive into the first few months of 2021, so let's hunker down and get serious. Below...
