Oh, Montana, Our Montana

Oh, Montana, Our Montana

Imagine us standing on a desk, declaring our love and allegiance.

We have each lived in other places, all are stunning and inspiring. But Montana is where we landed, where we birthed our children and this business, Mamalode—all deliberate choices.

We are proud to announce that we have partnered with the state Office of Tourism to produce a special edition print Mamalode magazine that is dedicated to families and businesses that love and choose Montana as a place to live or visit.

We are proud of Mamalode, of the team who started a national movement that trickles down all sides like water off the Continental Divide. We know that to start a business and grow organically, authentically, always people first—could only have happened here. We put the boots in boot-strapped and stomped all over the world, sharing stories and hearts.

We are also proud of the childhood our kids are having. Here, they are growing up with joy, mountains, lakes, fields, rivers and profound friendships.

Montana, she has gumption and a certain ability to look beyond limitations and horizons. It might be that big sky that stretches us a bit past the edge of what seems possible. There is a certain truth to this place, and that truth is reflected every day in Mamalode and our kids.

Our Montana can be your Montana too. There is more than enough grace, beauty and memories to share. Come visit, grow. Come expand and see what is possible.

September 2016 - the sky's the limit
This month we are delighted to partner with the State of Montana on a really cool national story-telling campaign called "THE SKY'S THE LIMIT." For Montana, this project - including a special edition of Mamalode magazine and accompanying video series - features heartfelt stories about life, work and play under the big sky. But whether we are here or there, sky's the limit is about dreams come true, being your best self, letting your imagination lead and perhaps, conquering the impossible.
