Fall in love with Pluck: our love letter series

27 Feb

This month on Pluck, my column with Chicago writer and my personal BFF Liz Joynt Sandberg, we’ve been writing a series of love letters to the things that make our mama-lives a little bit sweeter.

So far, we’ve featured a pretty good list of stuff: pizza, wine, TV, breast milk. Not kidding on that last one – my latest post was a love letter to breastfeeding! Liz also posted a beautiful essay that she wrote to the mothers at our local church, which she’ll be performing as part of Chicago’s 2013 Listen to Your Mother – the nationwide essay-reading event designed to “give mother’s day a microphone.”

Here’s a compendium of our love letters so far:

Hummingbird – a love letter to the mothers at Berry UMC

Dear delicious pizza: a love letter to Homemade Pizza Company

Dear wine, TV, and my kitchen timer: a cry-it-out love letter

Dear boobies: A love letter to breastfeeding

The Homemade pizza post actually got me an email from the CEO of the company! He wants to buy pizza for all of us over at Rebellious. Yum!
