Welcome to our dining table.
Connor and I met in journalism class when I was 14. We grew up, fell in love, and married at 20 & 21, which somehow didn’t seem soon enough. We both maintained our creative interests from childhood — he is a documentary film writer and director, and I am a designer.
We missed working together on creative projects, so we channeled our dining table conversations into this publication. His skillful story-telling and my passion for editorial design have married into a Substack we are obsessed with.
Feeling! is a lifestyle magazine made for enduring seasons of grey — it’s a curation of joy, hope, and color mixed together.
Feeling! is really just a seat at our dining table, it’s what we are fascinated about and share with each other. For example:
This magazine is a collaboration we are enthusiastic about, and we are really excited you are here! It’s our biggest dream to make tangible print editions of Feeling! one day.
Feeling! Magazine is an ad-free space, with no affiliate links or advertisements. We just truly believe in everything we share, and the process of writing it. That means our paid subscribers are the backbone of our mission!
Here’s what our subscribers receive:
Occasional additional articles
Paid Subscribers, for $5 a month (roughly $1.20 an article):

Additional interviews, personal journals, art downloads

We are so thankful for every reader. Your support lights the fire in us to keep making beautiful things. P.S. if you are an avid reader, but can’t do the $5 a month, send me an email and we can work something out!
