Growing up I thought my mother made the best butter on toast in the entire world. Even now when I visit her, it warms me from the inside out. It’s not extravagant or fancy, and I’ve been able to butter my own toast for a long time now. But, for some reason, mine never tastes quite like hers. She always laughs and says it is because it’s “Made with Love.”
And I absolutely believe this to be true.
Love is a defining ingredient for life. At g, we do our best to put love into everything we create.

One such bump came with the shift from being an at-home mama, to Carrie going back to work teaching outside the home.

At gDiapers we’ve always believed that small acts can add up to big change. Over the past four years, the Big Latch On has shown how a grassroots, community-based event can get global fast. A Big Latch On event is simple—a group of women come together at a registered location to ‘latch on’ (breastfeed) their babies at a set time and raise their hands to be counted. Friends are made, fun is had, and every year breastfeeding records are broken. It’s fun and simple, but powerful.

Launching the Love Me g Collection and connecting with Hands to Hearts International has got us digging into what love means to us. Oh, those 6,000 chocolate hearts we saw at the grocery store yesterday might have been a part of it too… Here’s Kim and Jason talking love in our office yesterday:
