Sunday Sweet Edit

May 21, 2023

Happy Sunday, sweet friends! This Sunday Sweet Edit we’re up north in the middle of nowhere visiting family for the weekend and…man. It feels good to get away from the chaos of the end of the school year (that whole “Maycember” thing is real).

Heading home today and I have a lot of fun posts planned for the blog this week. Stay tuned!

on The Sober Mom Life podcast…

Laura Cathcart Robbins, the author of the excellent new quit lit memoir ‘Stash: My Life in Hiding’ joins me on the podcast. Laura’s story of recovery from a very secret and dangerous addiction is beautiful, heartbreaking, and brave. Her story is at the intersection of race, privilege and addiction. Laura is a trailblazer in the Quit Lit space, as she is the first black author to release a high profile book on this topic. Let’s show the publishing world that we need more recovery stories from people of color by supporting this book – More stories like Laura’s need to be told!

The Real Sober Moms with Jess The Sober Mom Life

Jess grew up in the alcohol-soaked culture of Wisconsin. It was everywhere – in her home, on the TV, and at every social event. She didn’t even know for a long time that it was an option to quit drinking.  When motherhood entered the picture in Jess’s mid-20s, drinking became her daily way to cope. She knew deep down that she had an issue, but she wasn’t ready to face it. Instead, she focused on balancing her life in every way… other than quitting alcohol.  The pandemic, which followed shortly after the birth of her third child, kicked things up a notch until Jess knew that she needed to make a change. Quitting was HARD for her. She experienced many stops and starts. But once she stopped shaming herself for the addiction that alcohol had created, she began to find her way forward.  Jess is now 10 months sober! She is so proud of the work she has done to get here. She wants you to know that sometimes this road is hard, and that’s okay! Just keep walking.  Jess recommends Alan Carr’s Stop Drinking Now: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=alan+carr+easy+way+to+quit Connect with Jess on Instagram: https://instagram.com/balanced_entrepreneur?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA== Announcing the Sober Mom Life Cafe!
