Join The LemonAid Community

We run this community for women who want to pick their own lemons, create their own recipe and make delicious LemonAid in a flavour of their own choice! And we’re here to help you do that…

Is This You?

Who This Is For

The LemonAid Community is for outliers, misfits, and women who want something different from the well-worn, treadmill path of hitting one conventional milestone after another. This is for you if…

  • You feel like you’ve never truly fitted in (and in some ways you’re a little bit proud of that!).
  • You crave more than just the usual superficial chit chat and ‘at the school gate’/watercooler’ topics of conversation.
  • Have hopes and dreams which may have been denied, hidden or mocked until now.
  • Want support from people who accept you for who you actually are, not who you (or they) feel you should be.
  • Want your whole self to be seen and accepted, even the shadow parts you find most shameful.
  • Feel alone, lonely and have no-one who you can really talk to beyond a certain level.
  • Are ready to hear other perspectives, points of view and lifestyle choices (and maybe even try them on for size!).

If any or even all of the above sound like you, we’d love you to join us!

Why Women Join

What Members Say

I joined LemonAid while on the cusp of making some important decisions around my life, home and family. That said, I’m still mid-cusp, because it has opened my mind to other possibilities I hadn’t previously considered. So there is always more to explore…

Our meetings bring a deeper layer to being a LemonAider: talking (about anything and everything), listening, laughing, occasional eye-wiping, but always safe, supportive and well-led.

It is a pleasure to be part of this community of women: to feel supported, accepted and encouraged through decisions and changes; to feel able to speak openly and honestly without fear of judgement; to be given the opportunity to champion others in their endeavours; to be positively challenged to approach life from a different angle; and to witness the evolution of relationships. Thank you, beautiful LemonAiders 🍋

Reading your posts makes me feel braver – not about anything in particular but your honesty and way of writing helps me feel more confident that I can muddle through life, motherhood and my relationship too and am not stuffing it all up too badly! Thank you for sharing 🙂 You both write beautifully and honestly ? Keep up the amazing work!

Your Questions Answered

What if I’m not gay? Can I still become a LemonAider?

Absolutely. While our Happily Ever After has involved each of us coming out and starting a same-sex relationship, we do realise that not everyone’s Happily Ever After will include this alternative route!

The themes we talk and write about, both on the blog, in the community and at meet-ups – though they are about our lives and relationship, and we’re obviously gay – are relevant to everyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. We are frank, honest and as authentic as we can be, and write about each theme from our own experience. This is obviously going to be different for you though we hope you find something of value in us sharing our stuff.

What happens at the Meet-ups With A Twist?

We usually meet once a month for a couple of hours; these meet-ups are child-free and we ask that LemonAiders attend with an open mind, and ready to listen and share openly. We usually talk around a specific theme which feels common for everyone, and share where we are personally and what’s around for each of us at the moment. This is a chance to get beyond the surface-level chat, and talk openly and deeply about what matters most to you or what you’re struggling with. It is not uncommon for LemonAiders to shed a tear or two, though this is entirely optional!

What happens in the LemonAid Juice Bar?

This is our private online community group where we keep in touch outside of the meet-ups and keep LemonAiders updated about events, meet-ups, challenges and more. We use Slack for this – fear not if this is new to you, it’s easy to use, there’s an app for your phone (and computer) and we’ll show you how to use it as soon as you sign up.

Why is some of the content private?

We share some very personal details which we’d rather not have available for the whole world to see. Yet!

LemonAiders are the curious, the open-minded, and the fellow leapers considering or making their own leap; they are women who find value in reading about others who have also made a leap and are looking for motivation, inspiration and, above all, to know that they are not alone in making those hard decisions and, ultimately, choosing to leap. Some parts of this journey are for those committed to investing in themselves and their journey – we feel the same about ours and want to protect it, nurture it and sometimes share it with only folk we know will ‘get’ it.

How do the challenges work?

We run regular challenges – usually one a month – to address areas of our own lives that need work! For each challenge, we’ll post an activity/task for you to ponder or action should you choose to. The challenges last between 3-30 days around one of the following themes…

  • Me First – A challenge to help you put yourself first in all sorts of ways, right before the summer break.
  • Money Matters  – A challenge to help you improve your relationship with money.
  • Squeeze The Day – A challenge to help you make a change you’ve been wanting to, on International Day of Happiness.
  • Mind Your Own Business – A challenge to help you (re)focus on your career path and/or business. 
  • EmBODYment – A challenge to help you integrate your body, mind and spirit.
  • Now We’re Talking – A challenge to look at how you communicate in your important relationships.
  • Sex & Intimacy – A challenge to help you explore the connection between sex, intimacy and love.
  • Fruitful GSD – A challenge to help you GET SHIT DONE!
How do the Business Kickstart Calls work?

Each month, you’ll be invited to join a 60-minute live group call with Lea who will be online to answer any questions you have about your business – whether these are strategic, tactical, technical or emotional!

Is there a minimum period I have to subscribe for?

No. You can leave at any time, by cancelling your subscription payment in your Paypal account.

I wanted to write to thank you for your blog. I value your beautifully written words, filled with awareness, wit, honesty and intimacy very highly. I have been through all sorts of ups and downs throughout my adult life and knowing I am a lesbian and that there are others like me has always been a comfort.

Whenever I am lonely or low, I have sought out women who know my stuff because they are living it too.  I feel a sense of familial closeness in this which I have not experienced in any other part of my life. Sometimes these connections feel hard to find and hard to access and I end up feeling isolated and a little lost in my own life.

Your blog is such a gift because it is always there whenever I feel alone in my gay life (I live in middle class rural Leicestershire so this is not difficult!) and I feel a little surge of joy when I see a new one has been published. Your words always bring me to tears of being deeply moved, of recognition, connection, of being known and knowing, of joy and sadness and celebration.

I am so glad you two have each other and that you are sharing some of what you are feeling, discovering, struggling with and enjoying because I resonate so closely with your experiences and they bring me such happiness and solidarity. Please never stop!
