I am honored to have an essay of mine about #MaggieSunshine in the brand new anthology, Martinis & Motherhood – Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?! which has been published and released today by Shannon Day (Martinis & Motherhood) and Tara Wilson (Don’t Lick the Deck) of Tipsy Squirrel Press.
I’m so excited to have my story included along with 37 other talented authors sharing their stories of the Wonder, Woe & WTF moments of motherhood – and custom martini recipes. (BTW – I highly recommend going directly to page 13…)
The book is filled with the kinds of tales that we like to share on a Mom’s Night Out (or in). They will make you laugh, cry, and realize that you’re in good company. The martinis are a fun way to celebrate the many toast-worthy moments of motherhood.
This story collection consists of thirty-seven tales of motherhood, each accompanied by an easy to-make martini. The custom martini recipes in the book are clearly aimed at women living in the thick of motherhood including such mixes as mine: The Wonderful.
The book features stories that inspire, entertain and make you laugh ’til you pee. These tales of Wonder, Woe and WTF?! share a little glimpse into the lives of other moms, who are a lot like you. Through their tales, we’re reminded to savor the little things (like capturing extra morning snuggles), to let go of the stresses (they won’t be in that unfortunate phase forever), and to be grateful for the laughs that the unexpected brings (because laughing is better than crying, and it may be the only workout our abs get!). So shake up an easy-to-make martini, put your feet up (quickly, before the kids find you) and join us on our journey as we toast to the many clink-worthy moments that motherhood brings.
Below is a list of all the book contributors and links to their blogs. Check these awesome ladies out!
