Dear Gorgeous Mamas….

A couple months ago, I finally connected with Tania Elfersy, the author of Purple Leaves, Red Cherries.  We had a beautiful talk via skype, I in New Jersey and she in Israel.  I instantly felt the depth of heart she poured into her book.

A few days later when I held the book itself in my hands I was beyond impressed.

After the kids were in bed with a warm cup of tea, I savored my way through Purple Leaves, Red Cherries (which is the only way to read this work of art).


Truly, it hasn’t been since the Griffin and Sabine chronicles that I’ve enjoyed a book that was both such a work of art to behold and to read.  Tania’s mission was to archive the stories of modern mothers – in all the complexity and brilliance, difficulty and transcendence this journey of motherhood offers us.  She coupled the stories of over 30 mothers with the gorgeous and soulful artwork of Nomi Melul Ohad.

I now have my go-to gift for every new mother I know.

Well, if there is anyone that deserves to be lavishly doused with love…it is YOU, dear mama!
