(that one time I made a magazine)
“$25 for a magazine...” may be high for a magazine, but C+C is not ANY magazine. Will gladly pay $25 for your work and any work from C+C writers. I know it’s going to be just beautiful.
There's never a doubt that I would hit pre-order faster than I can read this email. I know I'm going to love this magazine. That's a given. What I am truly appreciative of today is how you bring us into your story. Never stop this, Ashlee. This is vulnerable hospitality at its finest. And my gracious did the line "the children are everywhere" feel like an entire anthem.
It’s beautiful. Can’t wait to hold a physical copy. Don’t ever give up.
Well done for dreaming and taking the risk. I will happily support women doing that every time! Already ordered mine! You should be proud no matter the outcome. Best wishes!
Couldn't hit "preorder" quickly enough. SO SO excited for this project Ashlee! ❤️❤️❤️
This is such a delightful piece of writing. (I feel that way about everything you write.) Love the Office reference--that scene is hilarious! And this line--“You move your children’s art projects to make room for your own”--gave me goosebumps. I can’t wait to hold this special project!
"You move your children’s art projects to make room for your own." And, really, what *is* it with the strawberry kind?? You made a magazine because with a heart like yours why wouldn't you dream and dream and dream again?
I loveddd the format of this post and am so excited for you/C+C!!!! <3
Ashlee! I honestly laughed out loud when I got the “real” email. I would have pre-ordered immediately anyway, but that was the cherry on top to me. You’re a creative and a mother and you’re figuring out your dreams as you go, and that is everything to so many of us who are trying to do the dang thing. I cannot wait to have my copy in hand. I know it will be stunning and moving. Adore you and this space you’ve dreamed up for all of us. ❤️
I started reading your email, paused to go buy the magazine and then returned to finish reading. I am so unbelievably excited to read it, so proud of you for chasing this dream and deeply inspired to go after a few dreams of my own. Thank you, and congratulations!
Excited to get my magazine! Thank you for following your dreams!
So beautiful! THANK YOU!
Congratulations!! 🎊 I hope you feel all the love and appreciation from us mamas who are truly thankful for your work!
So incredibly grateful for the work you & the C+C team continue to bless us with. I’ll buy every magazine you make. Congrats on this launch!!!
So so beautiful! These words that poured out and the magazine that you labored over for so long. Can’t wait to hold it in my hands!
Here for this and all that you do, Ashlee! Congrats!
