three, two, one, LAUNCH!

It's September 1st.  Do you know what that means?

Last Spring, as you may remember, my friend Kelly and I had an idea to create an on-line magazine that brought together all of our favorite things:  healthy eating, fitness, art, home, outdoors, and adventure.

Well, we did it.  The first issue of Sparrow Magazine is live as of today, as promised.

We are so proud to see all the work of so many awesome contributors come together.  It was a ton of work, but it was a labor of love.  Kelly and I make a great team and worked seamlessly together, but Kelly has really been amazing in her determination.  She's a task master, and we might not have made this deadline without her focus and her countless late nights of work. We also owe much gratitude to Kelly's husband Erik who worked very hard with us on this project and was clutch in saving us from some technical glitches.  Hooray for smart, technically-minded people.

Issue #1 has 23 articles for you to read.  You probably won't read them all in one sitting, but you will enjoy cruising around our homepage, and looking at the list of our contributors.  And then you can come back tomorrow morning to read some more articles.

So, without further ado, pour your coffee, and get reading!

Happy Sparrow Magazine Day!  (oh, and Happy First Day of School to all of my new students too!)

I have been reading your blog for almost a year now, but I have never commented. I really appreciate having a "healthy living" blog to read from a working mom. I am a teacher too and my daughter and son are the exact ages of your children! Your blog encourages me to keep running (although my runs are much shorter and slower than yours :) and reminds me to slow down to enjoy these fleeting moments of my kids childhood. Thank you for Sparrow and I look forward to reading more!
