It all started when...
Devon's friends decided to throw her a "West Coast" bachelorette night. It was the coming together of people from all walks of life, ideals, styles, laughs but all had one thing in common: they believed in supporting + loving one another. This night was no exception.
Near the end of the night, Devon's now husband met everyone with a homemade cake decked out in chocolate ganache. The crew devoured it stopping only to smile and share the cake with fellow bartenders and "bus boys" — one of those surreal moments where we're reminded how transportive food and good company really are.
After the cake was gone, one of their friends walked over and thanked them for the cake.
"I just needed to tell you that this is one of the best cakes I've ever eaten," she said, "And I'm not sure if it's because I'm about to get my period, but I almost cried."
Devon sat next to her friend later that night and told her not to worry.
"We'll be sure to bring you a slice of this cake every month."
What started as a heart-centered gesture has become a company built out of the idea that people deserve to feel heard, seen and gifted during a time of the month that ain't always pretty. A space to shed the stigma + talk about periods as naturally as they occur in our bodies. A community where we can cultivate the belief that it's possible and important to satisfy our cravings and nourish our bodies — that we don't have to give up one for the other.
A business that values education and believes that understanding our bodies leads to choice which leads to empowerment.
In order to lead with integrity, we decided to team up with experts, bloggers + women alike to create Moon Cycle Bakery® the way it deserved — with wholeheartedness, love + healthy alternatives that satisfied (and soothed) cravings.
Moon Cycle Bakery® is a business from our hearts to yours and we are so excited + grateful that you're here.
