I’ve been practicing Pilates this summer. It’s a low-impact workout that has helped me discover new found strength in my core. There are thousands of free Pilates videos on YouTube. Following are my favorite channels:
A Woman Changing the World
My dear friend, Emily Landers, owns A Little Something, A Lot of Love.
After Emily suffered a miscarriage in December 2020, she immediately channeled her loss into joy. She founded her company with a mission of bringing hope and support to women after pregnancy loss.
Emily handcrafts “Joy Bomb” care packages filled with magical and whimsical products and a handwritten note that she donates to the labor and delivery floor of local hospitals. Each package contains thoughtful gifts to help women cope by bringing a little bit of joy during this difficult time.
Emily handcrafts many of the items in the Joy Bomb packages, including gemstone bracelets, rainbow makers, beach glass candles, and wishing jars.
Emily also sells these items on her website. And, for every bracelet purchased, one is donated for the Joy Bombs.
Emily stated, “I want to contribute to our society by leaving something beautiful and lasting, while leaving a legacy for my baby and supporting moms and women going through miscarriage and still birth. Hopefully, I can be an example of hope to others by promoting optimism in the face of adversity. Maybe seeing someone go through miscarriage will make them realize they can make it through as well.”
Nourish is a proud supporter of A Little Something, A Lot of Love. We regularly donate products that Emily includes in the Joy Bomb care packages.
Live well. Be kind.
