We get it

Kristi Corley It’s a little hard to believe that two years ago the first issue of Babyourself Magazine was shared with the mommas of Central Florida. I am continually humbled by how a group of moms came together to share their stories – moms just like you – who all deal with such similar issues during this stage of life.

We struggle with sleep schedules, we celebrate our little one’s milestones, we balance crazy schedules, we support each other over the news of a miscarriage, a struggling family situation, or heart-breaking health issue. It’s pretty amazing how we, as moms, “get it.” And I truly believe that’s what makes Babyourself unique and who we are today. We’re a community of moms whose hearts are linked, now matter what this phase of motherhood throws at us!

As we approach the holidays this season, I hope the articles within this issue will be helpful and encouraging. On page 9, Vickie shares some of her ideas on how to get your kids involved in the holiday food preparation, along with a number of her great recipes!

The holiday gift guide is an annual tradition, and this year we chose to focus on gifts for your kids! Elisabeth, our creative director and photographer, gives some photography tips on how to capture the perfect photo on page 16.

There’s also fitness tips from our exercise guru Jackie – her “Move of the Month” will get your shoulders looking sleek and slender for your holiday dress! And finally our “Career Momma” gives some excellent advice on how to keep the jingle in your holidays!

The Facebook interactions are pretty amazing each and every week, so be sure to “like” our page and become part of a great community of moms! Be sure to introduce yourself so I can jump in and say hello!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to wish you a joyous and memorable holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. Savor each and every moment with your loved ones!
