Ladies Only Blog Share: The Perfectly Imperfect Gala!


Welcome back to our Ladies Only Blog Share Link Party! This week we’re celebrating all things that are perfectly imperfect, including moms! While promoting our book, The Mother of All Meltdowns, we discovered a very common theme. Mothers don’t openly talk about the “not so great” moments of parenthood; the times when they meltdown and absolutely lose their minds. To do so would reveal their flaws; exposing that they are not the picture-perfect mothers often seen on the pages of a magazine.

The truth is…not one of us is perfect. We burn important dinners. We kill ordinary houseplants. We yell. We have bad hair days. We curse. And then we curse some more. And…that’s okay! So let’s embrace our uniquities! Please link up your posts – old or new – which in some way celebrate life’s imperfections, parenting misses, and everything in between!



Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11th 2014! We want moms everywhere to accept the meltdowns, stop chasing perfection, and embrace their uniquity. You won’t find this word listed in Webster’s, but you will find it within every mother on the planet. Enter between April 1, 2014 to May 11, 2014 to win one of three fabulous prize packages including a three night stay for two at a destination spa! Check out the amazing prizes and enter here!


Once again, here are my talented and dedicated co-hosts:

    Great idea for a topic – because we are all wonderfully human and lovable in our imperfection. I just published a book with title “You Are Beautiful! 53 Easy Ways to Love Your Imperfect Self” so it’s something I’ve been thinking about and working on for a while now and it saddens me to see women beating themselves up because of perceived flaws.
