The Sweet Edit

September 4, 2022

Hi, sweet friends! This Sunday Sweet Edit we celebrated my boy’s 3rd birthday yesterday and I’m having all the feelings. I’m still just over here trying to slow down time…

Where the Bleep is Kate Middleton? This burning question has brought Jay and Suzanne back to the mic for a special episode of Brand New Information! Suzanne catches Jay up to speed on the theories and developments surrounding the whereabouts of Kate Middleton, The Princess of Wales, while Jay shares his in depth knowledge of the royal family (exclusively gleaned from The Crown). If you want to dive deeper into #KateGate, Suzanne recommends listening to another sibling pop culture duo – Pop Apologists! Follow Jay on Instagram & Twitter, and Suzanne on Instagram!

I chatted with Erin of @rawbeautytalks! I love her story and find it so relatable. There’s not a rock bottom. She didn’t HAVE to quit drinking alcohol. Her sobriety is about feeling good and taking care of her body and mind.

Flashback Friday: How I Think About My Sobriety The Sober Mom Life

In this flashback from May 2023, I’ll share my approach to sobriety, and how I found myself at the place I am now with alcohol.  When I began my sober journey, I only knew what I didn’t want: I didn’t want alcohol to take one more day away from me. Now I know what I do want: a full, expansive and beautiful sober life.  Your sober journey gets to look the way YOU want it to. It doesn’t have to follow anyone else’s guidelines.  If you’re looking for a community of wonderful sober moms to support you while you build your own sober life, join us inside The Sober Mom Life Cafe!

one more thing…

A quote from the @sobermomlife that says, "You don't need liquid courage."

I know.

I know we’ve been taught that alcohol will make us more courageous, more social, less anxious, blah blah blah. And that might feel true – for the first 15 minutes or so.

But…what if you gave yourself a chance to see that you don’t need the fake courage? That you are courageous WITHOUT alcohol. That you can withstand the discomfort of social anxiety.

You won’t know until you try…

If this is your first sober holiday, head to The Sober Mom Life podcast for support! A few months ago, I shared tips for enjoying your first sober 4th of July, and it definitely applies to your first sober Labor Day, too…
