Reframing Momfluencers with Sara Petersen
and a Reframeables Wine Night — Join us!!
This week, we are talking all things momfluencers with author Sara Petersen whose new book Momfluenced comes out this month. We reminisce with Sara about some of our favourite momfluencers, and why they also irritate us. We discuss the weight mothers carry to perform a certain kind of motherhood online, and some examples of mom culture getting it really right that you'll want to check out.
Sara has written about motherhood and feminism for The New York Times, Harper's Bazaar, The Washington Post, and elsewhere. She also writes the newsletter In Pursuit of Clean Countertops, where she explores the cult of ideal motherhood. She lives in New Hampshire.

We need some time together, dear Reframeables! The tyranny of the urgent is feeling extra amped up these days (for so many of us in different ways). To combat that never ending push forward we want to press pause and chill out together. Take energy from each other through conversation in a fresh space. So, we hope you’ll join us for this month’s live event:
When: April 25th from 7-9pm (or any time you can make it in there!)
Where: Headspace TO - Coffee and Wine (548 Annette St.)
Jakub, the new owner, is opening up just for us so let’s take advantage and reframe together over a nice glass of wine…midweek…just because!
We can’t wait to see you 💛
Let’s try to slow down, hang out with a cat, and maybe even sew a little something from the dropped threads of a busy winter season. Spring is here and with it new hope.
