Quite a few of you have asked how to subscribe to my new site, Thankful Moms.

To be honest, I haven’t quite figured it out yet. However, I have good news!

I have a little newsletter, I call my Friends-letter, because it’s a way I connect more personally with my closer circle of readers – like you.

I send an email once a week or so, which includes links to my posts from the week so you can easily read them. My goal is to never take more than a minute or two of your time (because I know inbox time is precious!).

Signing up is simple – click HERE.

Friends, you are important to me and I don’t want to lose a single one of you in the move to Thankful Moms.

I’ll keep an eye on sign-ups and can’t wait to see you soon.
