Postpartum Depression: Why I have to Fight

My blissful pregnancy set the stage for happily-ever-after and then Postpartum Depression hit me like a bat into a million fragments (My Secret: Surviving Postpartum Depression). Some days I feel like a pile on the floor and broken. In my darkest hour I believe: I’m certainly going to feel like this forever; it’s just too hard. How I can continue living like this? My daughter will wonder why mommy’s lying in a dark room by herself. My husband can’t be happy, this isn’t what he signed up for. My family deserves better… And then, the clouds...

Our CEO's Thoughts on Getting Your Own Idea into Production

So you were on this trip, doing this thing. Or, you were with your kids, doing this thing. Or, you were in the car and needed this and wondered if you could buy it on Amazon, but you looked and couldn't. And this idea comes to you. You have to have it. Others need it too. Then what?  You immediately call your bestie like I did and say "Hey! Let's start a ______company together". And they say "You can do it, but I am not going to" and begin to give you advice that makes...

Adoption and Breastfeeding: One Mother's Amazing Journey

I had to share this amazing story. Sarah Graves almost gave up hope of ever having a baby and then discovered a connection greater than she ever dreamed possible. Adoption and Breastfeeding: Yes! It can happen! Everyone is on their own journey, but what I've learned is there will always be another momma or hopeful-momma-to-be out there that knows what you're feeling, that's trudged the same road you have; that can offer hope because she's survived. I know a lot of mommas have struggled breastfeeding–if this is your experience, you're not alone. Sarah's story above...

The Traveling Mom #Fashionmama

Traveling is tough. It doesn’t matter if it’s a work, a girls, or family trip. There’s so much to remember and be prepared for. (From stomach aches to being dressed appropriately for the weather) If you’re like me, you  try to plan for it all. When I’m traveling for work that means my husband becomes Mr. Mom. Don't get me wrong he already does a ton, and we have a great system since our work schedules are completely opposite. (Except when I travel – which is about once a month) To make things a little...

My Secret: Surviving Postpartum Depression

There are things that moms just don't say out loud. Well, I’ll stick to my own experience… I had a beautiful pregnancy. I was never sick, I slept peacefully and deep even until the end. I was rarely uncomfortable physically or emotionally. I didn’t struggle with weight gain. I felt more beautiful than I’ve ever felt and all my body image issues vanished. I loved being pregnant; I loved feeling her move around and kick me. I loved going on walks with “my little passenger” as I called her. I never felt alone. I was...

Handsocks Use # 1001 Eating Snow

Excited Jillian found a new use for Handsocks today. *Eating Snow My sister in-law and I were discussing that eating snow doesn't even cross our minds. Are we all missing out on a few of the little things in our older age? It's a quick reminder to find ways to bring back that childish spontaneity and gusto, to create random happiness from simple things. It snowed a foot here in Cape Cod yesterday.  Today, I just might eat some. Handsocks mama

Christmas and the holiday season with Handsocks

With Fall well settled in, our thoughts start turning towards Christmas and the holiday season. If you, a family member or friend have been fortunate enough to have a baby this year then you and they will no doubt be looking forward to the holidays even more than usual.
