Sunday Sweet Edit

April 23, 2023

Happy Sunday Sweet Edit, sweet friends! Spring has come and gone in Chicago, (It’s coming back, right? Right??) so we’re back to being cuddled up inside because I can’t stand being cold anymore. I’m so over it.

But, that means I get to nest and spring clean and get our home in order. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday, if you ask me.

Thank you, as always, for supporting my little corner of the Internet!

on the podcasts…

Jay explains the Discord leaks and what we learned from them and I share the breaking news that Taylor swift is…OK. Plus, Wayne’s World (again), Clueless, and so much more.

I chat with my Influencer friend Gretchen of @livinglifepretty about influencing and sobriety. Gretchen has never shared her sobriety journey publicly before now, and I’m so honored that she trusted me with it.

The Real Sober Moms with Erin W. The Sober Mom Life

Today’s Real Sober Mom, Erin, is here with a story that is so relatable.  In high school, alcohol gave Erin her first taste of ‘fitting in’. She leaned on it to socialize on the weekends throughout her teens and early 20s, and she never gave it much thought. Her drinking always seemed ‘normal’ when compared with those around her! Once she began having children, though, alcohol slowly started to seep into her weekday life, as wine became a ‘reward’ for making it through the intense days being a working mom.  In 2016, things took a turn. Erin experienced a devastating pregnancy loss at around 20 weeks. In the aftermath, therapy and community support did not feel like enough. She began to lean on alcohol to cope. The progression of her drinking was slow, but she eventually found herself often drinking a bottle a night, and something within her began to whisper… was she an alcoholic? But the term didn’t quite seem to fit.  Erin felt stuck in a pattern of questioning and moderation. Then, last fall, she found the Sober Mom Life community. This space helped her see a path forward! She has now been sober since January 1st, and in that time she has experienced so many big sober milestones. Erin is slated to run The Boston Marathon on her 100th day of sobriety, and she can’t wait to experience how good she will feel on that day!  Erin wants to share words of wisdom that a longtime sober friend told her:  The elevator stops at every floor, and you can get off at any floor.  My mocktail recipe book, ‘No Ethanol Needed’ is finally here!

Who remembers The Real Sober Mom chats? They’re like The Real Housewives, but without the booze and drama. Ha. I chat with real moms about their relationship with alcohol and their sober journey, no matter where there are on it. The episodes will come to the main podcast, but first I’m sharing them on Patreon! Also, you can sign up to share your story on Patreon, too.


what I wore last week…

Suzanne wearing a sweater and jeans

My exact sweater is almost sold out, but I found the same sweater with a twist. I might like it even more…?

Suzanne wearing a color block sweater and distressed jeans

My SUNDRY colorblock is on sale! If temps are going to be below 50, I’m wearing a cozy sweatshirt. I’m wearing size 1.

Suzanne wearing a cardigan and Pistola trousers

Yes, I wore something very similar to this look a few weeks ago, but I can’t help it. I like what I like. ????
