Abbott and June is a byproduct of (surprisingly) becoming a mom (twice) – hilarious, right? As a new mom of two little boys who also worked full-time, I found myself with a very different social life than I’d grown accustom to. Abbott and June was initially an outlet for all of those “adult” conversations I wished I still had time to have, inadvertently hitting home with moms who, like me, couldn’t relate to the glossy and glamorous dialogue that had been built around motherhood and parenting over the decades.

From a maternity leave project aimed at keeping me sane, to a blog that has cultivated an inspiring community of parents and like-minded individuals, Abbott and June has become a safe space for the woman, the mess and the mom.
