I’m Jess, a mom of two children, and a true believer in lifting up other moms, celebrating the brave steps we take together to make a positive impact on the world. When we celebrate each other’s victories, we make movements. We make progress.

Today, we’re launching our #CelebrateRealMoms series. Every Wednesday, we’ll choose a #RealMom doing amazing things and feature her work, her struggles, ideas, victories.

For our first post in the series, we’re highlighting Kate Celauro. She’s a Nashville mom with a two amazing little boys who attend school with mine. Like us, she is passionate about literacy and loves writing, reading with her kids, and traveling. She also recently decided to do some brave things with her writing. National Read Across America Day takes place tomorrow, and it seems just right to feature Kate and her children’s book, Bartleby, as we prepare to read with our kids tomorrow.
