This moment has finally, finally arrived! Hello, and thank you so much for picking up/viewing a copy of Raising Modern. My name is Natalie Grant and I am the Founder & Creative Director of Boombaloo and of our parent company, Raising Modern ~ a media company for the modern family!
Three years ago I started BOOMBALOO, and like any company over time things evolve and new and exciting things are born. BOOMBALOO will now remain a Baby & Toddler brand only, while Raising Modern will be our NEW parent company focusing on women, men, and kids. You got it – the modern family!
With a passion for the latest trends and living a healthy and well balanced life Raising Modern will be curated by myself. We will be showcasing the latest in all fashion and décor trends, healthy living options, sustainable products, places to see and travel with the family, real conversations about real parenting topics, and so much more!
With Fall here in the Okanagan we are so proud to showcase so much OKANAGAN talent. From small local shops to wineries, from design tips to delicious recipes, and inspiration from so many local artists. We hope you enjoy what this FALL issue has to offer. Now go grab a cup of apple cider and enjoy our very first Raising Modern edition here in the Okanagan!
This first issue is dedicated to my late Father, who told me I could do whatever I wanted in this world as long as I was “happy” while doing it.
Dad, this is my passion, this is my dream. I am very happy! 😉
