Martinis & Motherhood: Now Available!

Martinis & Motherhood... this book has my name written all over it!

Actually, it only has my name written once. Because, that's right, I'm in yet another anthology! I was thrilled to be selected as a contributor to the "Woe" section; there are also "Wonder" and "WTF?!" contributors in this delicious, honest, hilarious, awesome book.



Check out the blurb:

Stories that inspire, entertain, and make you laugh ’til you pee. Plus martinis! And not just any-old-martinis—these ones were designed just for moms!

These tales of Wonder, Woe and WTF?! share a little glimpse into the lives of other moms, who are a lot like you. Through their tales, we’re reminded to savour the little things (like capturing extra morning snuggles), to let go of the stresses (they won’t be in that unfortunate phase forever), and to be grateful for the laughs that the unexpected brings (because laughing is better than crying and it may be the only workout our abs get!).

So shake up an easy-to-make martini, put your feet up (quickly, before the kids find you) and join us on our journey as we toast to the many clink-worthy moments that motherhood brings.

And here's an excerpt from my story, "French Women Don't Get Fat":

Adding insult to injury, we live across the street from a maternity hospital. From the comfort of my apartment, clad in stretchy Size L yoga pants that will never be used for yoga, I see impossibly thin women leave the hospital with their tiny bundles of joy in their skinny little arms. Pouffiasses.

Ready for some amazing stories and tasty cocktails? Want to find out what a "pouffiasse" is? Order your copy today!

And be sure to check out the blogs of all the wonderful contributors!
