Instead of tears, these days are filled with excitement, hope and deadlines.
Instead of dread, love.
Instead of fear and anxiety, a vision.
The launch of Still Standing Magazine has somewhat minimized the normal amount of anxiety I feel around Jenna’s birthday.
Of course there are moments that catch me off guard and I am just in awe of how much time has passed since I last held her.
It crushes me.
Organizing the bones and structure of Still Standing Magazine has been a collage of sleepless nights, early mornings, many scattered lists and a constantly bombarded inbox.
You won’t see me complaining, but the work has been unbelievable.
May 5 it will be all worth it.
Instead of ordering (I don’t bake ya’ll) a butterfly cake, I get to release this into the world.
And for any woman who has been affected by loss and infertility.
I have a strong feeling about this. Not that my feelings are reliable, but this just has to be incredible.
Have you been able to meet some of our contributors these past few days on their blogs?
With each of these amazing women, it just has to be.
This weekend our March of Dimes walk takes place, and our Launch Party for SS Magazine also kicks off. It’s going to be quite the weekend.
I just wanted to prepare you that my blog will be a PARTY next week, full of giveaways - all donated by some kick-butt people – to help us celebrate the Launch of SS Magazine AND our seven day countdown til it’s debut!
There will be at least one, and most days two giveaway posts, but fear not! My blog is not turning into a PR/ ad blog. Also, since Facebook has strict rules on giveaways (which could possibly shut down our page) I thought it would be best to host it here on the blog.
Since both my son’s and daughter’s birthdays are next week (and sweet Nevaeh’s) Amy and I are doing a birthday week for them and celebrating together. I won’t be around much online, but I promise to share details after May 5. We have quite a birthday week planned :)
April 29, the fun begins!!! :)
ps — tomorrow a newsletter for Still Standing goes out, and you get a sneak peek at our website before it goes live! Be sure to sign up for free here.
