Goodbye August, Hello Baby!


It’s nearing the end of summer here in North America. August has been hard and it has been beautiful.

This month we mourned for Michael Brown and Ferguson, for families in Iraq and Syria, for immigrants and travelers and families caught in the middle of war and uncertainty. We won’t forget this August for a long time to come.

But this month we also celebrated and welcomed new life into our midst. Hint: there are cute baby pictures in this month’s zine.

It’s hard to have the right words for all the life packed into the past 30 days here at SheLoves, so instead we just crammed some of the highlights into our little book.
