Why, you ask? Because he delivered a box of dreams today. He delivered 175 copies of a dream that has lasted well over three years now. He delivered 175 copies of a dream that took over 30 voices to create. He delivered 175 copies of a dream that will hopefully reach millions of moms. Specifically, he delivered 175 copies of Milk Diaries to my doorstep; and that is why I almost kissed him! He was gone too quickly for any formal intros, let alone a big smooch, but I certainly was thankful he came with “the box” today.
For those of you who may not know, I made a little book for a friend who was becoming a lactation consultant a few years back. It was filled with stories of several mutual friends’ breastfeeding trials, triumphs, encouraging words, and tons of good advice. I thought it might help moms she would meet who were struggling in some way. The more great stories I received, the more I thought that they would be a terrific encouragement to any mom who made the decision to breastfeed. Over thirty stories later, that gift has evolved into the Milk Diaries: A compilation of practical, encouraging advice from the “real” breastfeeding experts. I cannot thank my friends enough!
If you’re searching for the shower gift for an expecting mum, look no further. Milk Diaries is now available on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle. You can also visit Facebook or Twitter for more information.
