Everyone deserves to be the main character in their own love story

We're all trying to help those we love channel their main character energy. Now, with LoveBook it's never been easier. Whether it's your best friend, romantic partner, parent, child or even yourself, LoveBook is all about sharing the love and making people feel special. Here's how it works:


LoveBook lets you bring your love story to life. You start out by creating your very own LoveMoji. With a variety of different body shapes, skin tones, hair styles, and accessories, it's easy for your characters to look and feel like your loved ones. From there, the rest of the story is up to you! You can create a fully custom, one-of-a-kind depiction of your love, or you can work off of one of LoveBook's many templates.

The templates work as guidelines and really help set you up for success as you create a very special love story. You can chose from outlines that let you fill in all of the reasons why you love them or boost their confidence by sharing just how great they really are. And with plenty of space to be packed full of inside jokes, not all of these have to be tear-jerkers... though a gift this special makes it pretty hard to *not* get choked up.

LoveBook also makes for the cutest addition to a proposal! Whether it's "The Story of Us" read just before a romantic candle-lit marriage proposal or the last topping on a "Will you be my Maid of Honor" box, these books are the sweetest way to show someone how much they mean to you. They also make a great wedding gift (in addition to whatever the couple has on their registry, of course!).

You can also celebrate how much fun you've had with dad this Father's Day by giving a book that shares the story of one of your fishing trips or all the ways that their "handy" tips have helped you around the house. These love stories make for a really unique Father's Day gift and reading them together with dad will only make him appreciate it that much more!

You can also give one to that new grad so they can bring a bit of home with them when they go off to college in the fall and remind them just how much fun they had in their last summer home before school.

LoveBook also offers self-love stories for kids so that you can show your little ones just how special they are on their birthday. It's a great way to help boost confidence and reiterate that they are beyond amazing!

The company is all about sharing the love and letting people feel special. And by helping their customers give these customizable, one-of-a-kind gifts, they do a great job at accomplishing just that!

They also have LoveMoji family and romantic coupon books, journals, mugs, greeting cards and more swag so your characters can guest-star in future occasions as well! That's right, they're not just bound by the pages of this chapter!

Check them out today and give someone the gift of being the main character. After all, we all deserve to be the star of our own love story!

How breastfeeding actually works is seriously awe-inspiring

Let's take a moment to marvel at this miraculous process.

A viral video shows what's happening beneath the surface when a baby breastfeeds.

Let me start by saying I don't care whether you breastfeed or not. Everyone's circumstances are different, no one needs to explain why they did or didn't breastfeed their babies and we'd all be better off with far fewer judgments across the baby-feeding spectrum.

With that disclaimer out of the way, can we at least all agree that breastfeeding is freaking awesome?

I mean, the whole biological process of growing an entire human practically from scratch is mind-blowing all by itself. But the fact that our bodies then create food to feed that human, with a whole system for how and when that food gets made and released, is just so cool.

Some cries for help can be hard to discern.

“I’m fine.”

How easily these two words slip from our mouths, often when nothing could be further from the truth. Sometimes, it feels safer to hide our true feelings, lest someone make a judgment or have a negative reaction. Other times, it’s a social rule instilled in childhood, perhaps even through punishment. Or maybe denying is the only way to combat overwhelm—if we ignore it all long enough, things will eventually get better anyway.

At the end of the day … it’s all about avoiding further pain, isn’t it?

But this denial can lead to even more suffering—not only emotionally, but physically as well. Everything from stiff muscles, to migraines, to digestive issues can stem from suppressing emotions.

Brandon Conway sounds remarkably like Michael Jackson when he sings.

When Michael Jackson died 13 years ago, the pop music world lost a legend. However markedly mysterious and controversial his personal life was, his contributions to music will go down in history as some of the most influential of all time.

Part of what made him such a beloved singer was the uniqueness of his voice. From the time he was a young child singing lead for The Jackson 5, his high-pitched vocals stood out. Hearing him sing live was impressive, his pitch-perfect performances always entertaining.

No one could ever really be compared to MJ, or so we thought. Out of the blue, a guy showed up on TikTok recently with a casual performance that sounds so much like the King of Pop it's blowing people away.
