Maybe I should change Mattbites to "Getting To Know The Most Beautiful Women In The World"? Between Jenifer and my friend Rebecca, above, I’m beginning to realize how blessed I am to be in the presence of such strong, talented and gorgeous human beings.

And let me get this off my chest: Women and Mothers are my heroes and I believe we’d have none of the current problems we have today if Mothers from all over the world were in power but I realize they’re too busy doing the most important jobs in the world already. There, I said it. I’m not ashamed.

But speaking of Motherhood….

Call this post an advertisement if you want, but I want to let you know that my friend Rebecca Woolf has a book coming out next month called Rockabye: From WIld To Child. It chronicles her life as party girl to mother, and while I haven’t read it yet I have been a fan of her blog for quite a while. Her perspective is amazing, her writing engaging, and this woman can walk in heels and carry a child like nobody’s business.

I was lucky enough to photograph her author photo for the book last year and take some candids of her and her lil gentleman. That’s an outtake above that to me captures so much in one frame: the duality of a gorgeous stylish young woman who is also a mother and safety zone to a very special little guy. It’s as if there’s an intersection of two worlds and now I can’t wait to read the book!

It’s available for pre-order now on Amazon and Booksense.

And Skampy, thank you for the introduction. I’m glad you weren’t hurt on the 101 dressed as a Disco Diva in the rain.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I’ve been a fan of your blog for a while, but I’ve always been a “silent reader” and never commented. I had to thank you today for that little paragraph/tribute to mothers. I’m a stay-at-home mom of a beautiful 9-month-old little girl and I’m realizing everyday what an un-glamorous job it really is. But also the most rewarding :) I wouldn’t trade being a mother for any career or success the world could offer me. It’s encouraging when I hear others show support in what we’re doing here at home. Thank you, Matt!

Thank you so much for introducing me to Rebecca Woolf’s blog. Pure delight to read. I laugh, I cry. It is just that good.

Thank you also for your writing. Your wit and charm comes through in your writing and I appreciate both.

Cheers to you and yours on a magical day we get once every four years. Make it count!

I’m a reader of both of your blogs, and this post is the first time I ever knew there was a connection between the two of you. Hah! I stumbled upon you through the food blog world, and her through the parent blog world…..

All in all, I guess its a small world.

I absolutely lover her blog, it gives me hope that if I want to be a mom some day it doesn’t mean, buying a mini-van and wearing sensible shoes.

And I loooooove your photos.

I’m a sucker for memoirs, and new blogs by intense folk. Thanks!

Awesome! Does the book come with a tiny artisanal barf bag?

Oh Matt, I used to follow your blog avidly then I got pregnant and had a baby and started following Rebecca’s and other mom blogs. So imagine my glee when I am finally able to start catching up on your blog that you and one of my fave mom blogs are friends. Some how it all makes sense! Food and motherhood it’s a match made in heaven.
