Rain or Shine Mamma has been getting a makeover during the holidays and I’m excited to share the new design with you! The logo was created by my talented friend Heather Dent of Heather Dent Studio and the blog design is the work of Jumping Jax Designs. I hope that the new look will make it easier for you to navigate the site and ultimately inspire more outdoor play and adventure in your daily lives. I’m still working on some tweaks, so if you see anything that doesn’t look right, please let me know!
I also have some BIG news that have been under wraps for a while. I’m currently working on my first book, a parenting memoir tentatively titled – you guessed it – There Is No Such Thing as Bad Weather, Only Bad Clothes. Although I can’t reveal too much about the contents yet, my daughters and I will spend a considerable amount of time in Sweden this year, as I will be doing research for the book. If everything goes according to plan, it will be published by Touchstone/Simon and Schuster in the summer/fall 2017. I will keep you posted on my progress.

That is awesome news. I look forward to reading! And I am just a little bit jealous about your travels.
Thanks, Nell! I’m very excited to get to spend some time with my family in Sweden, and to have the opportunity to write this book.
So exciting – for you and for us! 🙂
Thank you, Monique! I’m hoping the book will have a big impact.
I’m so excited for you – and can’t wait to read the book when it’s done! Happy 2016
Thanks, Angie! Happy New Year to you too:o)
Linda, that’s great news! Can’t wait to hear more about your research in Sweden. Will you be able to share some of it as you write the book or will we have to patiently wait until 2017?
And I really like the new website design, especially the logo.
Thanks, Noreen! Glad you like the new look. I’ll definitely be blogging from Sweden but will probably share other things than what’s going in the book.
Can’t wait to read about your adventures in Sweden! Maybe it will even motivate us to include Sweden in one of our next Europe trips…it’s definitely on the list but so are many other places. 🙂 Good luck!
Sweden is definitely worth visiting. It’s beautiful and the opportunities for outdoor recreation endless. Just don’t count on sunny weather and warm temps;o)
Fantastic! Look forward to it. Good for you!
Amazing. The site looks fabulous and congratulations on the new book. Can’t wait to follow your adventure filled year ahead.
Thanks, Jen! Yup, it’s time to start packing:o) Can’t wait.
Well done – spread the word
Great logo and design
Thank you, Jan! Glad you like the new look, the designer did a great job.
Love the new look and super cool new son the book! How neat!
*news on…oops, not new son!
Definitely not planning on having any sons, lol! Although I’ve heard that writing a book can be a lot like giving birth:o)
Thank you, Sarah! Appreciate your support.
Thanks for the shout out! It’s so exciting to have my work represented on your blog. Congratulations again on your book!
No problem:o) I love the new look and your logo! You really captured us perfectly:o)
I love the new look blog, but like the news about the book even more! Happy 2016!
Happy 2016 to you too! Love your excitement:o)
