Wel­come

Haven Magazine - - Upfront -

to our May edi­tion of haven. Please join me in cel­e­brat­ing moth­er­hood in all its glory! I of­ten en­cour­age my fam­ily to celebrate my birth­DAY with a month long ‘cel­e­bra­tion of Kee­ley’ and let me tell you, I am push­ing for a MOTHER of a month this May full of kids' cud­dles and end­less love notes for 31 days! In all se­ri­ous­ness, moth­er­hood is the most chal­leng­ing yet most re­ward­ing role out there and I am so very grate­ful to be on this jour­ney, shar­ing it with an amaz­ing fam­ily and wealth of friends through the highs and lows. As you read on and de­vour our fea­ture on the mother of all jobs I hope you feel the love, share the joy and un­der­stand the jug­gle. And re­mem­ber you have a tribe all around you – we call our­selves mums. The crew at haven has a chal­lenge for you this month and would love you to play along. We are go­ing to dig­i­tally detox by em­brac­ing “Screen-free Fri­days”. That’s right, put your phones, tablets, TVs and com­put­ers away and get back to board games, beach walks or park life. Now we can’t ask you to take a snap of your fam­ily in ac­tion (be­cause you are sup­posed to be screen free!), how­ever write to us, tag us the next day on so­cial me­dia and tell us how your Screen-free Fri­day went. What did you get up to? Did you re­con­nect? Was it fun? We have passes to Cur­rumbin Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary to ran­domly give away to some lucky play­ers! Be sure to fol­low our weekly e-hub for more tips on how to play and be part of the dig­i­tal detox. Reg­is­ter on­line at www.haven­magazine.com.au May the kids give you some ‘me’ time to make a pot of tea (or a jug of mar­gar­i­tas) so you can read on and en­joy haven cover to cover.

Happy Mother­ing,
