Lisa-Jo Baker - The Middle Matters
In these intimate reflections on midlife, Lisa-Jo Baker's 'The Middle Matters' invites us to get a good look at our middles and gives us permission to embrace them - beyond what the media, the mirror, or the magazines say. Through gutsy, beautiful storytelling, she admits out loud what most of us are thinking about marrieage, parenting, the bathroom scale, and how badly we all want to buy those matching Magnolia Market rugs.
Her delicious stories come from not being afraid of who she is, because Lisa-Jo knows that the middle might be the best part of the love story of life, kids, faith, doubt, marriage, failure, wonder, and the muffin-top - and that these are all good things. She's not asking you to seize the day, just to make sure you actually see it for all its wildly ordinary glory.
Welcome to the middle!

To the Father of My Children
I didn't know to expect this. I didn't know to expect how much our kids would love you and what that would do to so long. Kids who got it wrong and hurt each other and disagreed and then stumbled our way into parenthood while we were stumbling our way back to life overseas. What a crazy combination of time zones that brought our children into the world.
But look now. Look how they love you!
Did you know? Did you always know how Zoe would stroke your beard and lean into the curve of your belly and make herself at home in that spot between your shoulder and your hip on the sofa while you watch some new dance show with her? Did you know that you would be her first love story, the one she'd measure all other boys against? I didn't.
