About Us


Exhale was created in love by the women who write at Coffee + Crumbs.

We know being a mom doesn’t always leave room for creativity. It can be challenging to think about art while tantrums and diapers are competing for your time. So often (too often?), the tantrums win.

But what if you took the time to unveil your creative soul and see it not as the thing competing with motherhood, but as the very thing helping to sustain motherhood?

We know this is possible.

We've been writing for Coffee + Crumbs for more than three years in the midst of pregnancies and adoptions, colic and miscarriages, moves and transitions, and doctor appointments filled with hard news. We’ve put our words down on paper both in the midst of the process and in the memory of it. Making time to write, to think, to dream, to wrestle with the weight of motherhood and shift it around from one tired hip to the next has often been the soul care we've needed to refocus our eyes on what is beautiful and good.

We haven’t written in spite of motherhood; we have written because of motherhood.

And now, we want to share what we've learned with you. We want you to discover the magical place where motherhood and creativity intersect, and we want you to do that in community and fellowship with other women.

We're better together. We can't wait for you to join us.
