Jennifer Morris of So Love Is Hard and Love Is Tough


posted by Sheri

Happy Two Years mamazine.com! In honor of our webzine's two-year anniversary this month, Amy and I are celebrating our readers. Today's featured reader is:

Name: Jennifer Morris. I'm one of many, many Jennifers on the internet.

Blog: So Love Is Hard and Love Is Tough

Kids: 2 kids—8 and 5

Paid Work: I help run my father's nature photography business. I've been very lucky to work for him and be able to have my kids with me at work.

Activism: I love Moms Rising and their email campaigns. I'm a volunteer breastfeeding counselor—I love to help a mama find her bliss in nursing her baby.

Reader since: I've been reading for at least a year and a half now. I love hearing real mama voices talk about motherhood, and not some media version of mamahood.

Currently reading: I just read Alison Bechdel's autobiography, Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic. I haven't seen her toon, Dykes to Watch Out for, since I was in college, and I sure have missed her drawings! I have a ton of sewing and craft books next to my bed, along with my current parenting read, The Explosive Child. Oh, and I must mention Jen Lemen's beautiful zine, Beginnings, which has been a salve for my heart this week.

Favorite mama blog: I have many beloved mama blogs; Krista's at The Silent K is one of my favorites. She is wise beyond her years, and writes inspiring posts about art and creativity, parenting, and yoga.

Express your love for mamazine.com and be our next featured reader! The deadline is August 29th and here's how.
