A note from our sponsor: I’m Katie – proud wife of Mark and mama to Nina Lorraine and Mae Frances. Believer in living – and parenting – with intention and always eating something sweet after dinner. I love letterpress, Wisconsin cheese, and fresh flowers.

As a child, I LOVED getting snail mail – the joy, the fun… the hooray moment! I wanted to provide my two little girls the same fun experience in our digital world so I looked to see if there was a subscription-based service that would automatically send them fun mail. I couldn’t find what I was looking for so I decided to do something about it!

Can I quote you on that? 

  • You have to find something that you’re passionate about, and something your kid is passionate about. You’re going to want to do that thing together. – Donnie Wahlberg (New Kids on the Block)
  • If you take a coin to a restaurant, and do hand shadow puppets, you will entertain your kids for hours. – NJ
  • The Boss Mom Retreat is like a mastermind, a dance party, and a retreat had a baby. – Dana
  • Loving my kids is easy. It’s engaging with my kids that is tough. Not because I don’t know how to engage; it’s because I want my kids to be as smart and capable as they can be. – Dana
