winging it

And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. – The Beatles

I’ve just completed 13,000 miles of travel this fall. What’s the takeaway? A giveaway.

Go to Taslim’s blog this week to win a signed copy of Momma Zen. Go see Roos to win tokens of love.  And here on my blog, leave as many comments as you like and I’ll be giving away a signed copy of Belly Button Bliss, a book of happy birth stories compiled by my generous friend Jennifer Derryberry Mann.

Enter often. Take all the love that comes. All contests end Friday, Oct. 28.

With love, Maezen.

The winner of Belly Button Bliss is Jim, who had the presence of mind to enter three times!


  1. Lovely! I’m set to be a mother in just 4 months and would love to take a look at Belly Button Bliss!

  7. Ok, Belly Button Bliss would be a great gift to accompany the copy of Momma Zen you’ve autographed for me to give Catherine (as soon as I’ve finished reading it as promised!!).

    Going to get a jump on Christmas and will be forwarding an order soon! hugs!

  13. My best friend is due on April 17th. She is routing her own journey by going this alone with a donor in a country where it is frowned upon and fighting obstacles at each turn. She has always wanted to be a mom …

  14. My dear, sweet, and incredibly awesome cousin is expecting her first baby in March. I cannot imagine a luckier soul than the one that gets to call her “mommy.”

  15. Ok, I posted in the wrong spot …..oops! My friend Catherine is so afraid of the birth process that she’s trying to figure out a way for FedEx to do it for her. She’s even agreed to stick an air bill to her belly!

  16. Oh, how I love birth stories! Tales of strength, bliss, joy, ache, and change.
