Mothers Day Advice from Last Year

When we started the website last year, we knew that we’d really want to focus some extra support around Mother’s Day.  We know that Mother’s Day is one of the hardest days for childless women, and even those that are at peace with their childlessness can often feel that twinge of sadness around this holiday….

Becoming me

I like to feel productive. I like the feeling of getting things done and like what I’m doing is important. Motherhood is tough because so much that moms do is repetitive and can get monotonous. I wonder if that’s one of the reasons that I’ve come to love working so much – though there is…

Learning to Fly

I live in the middle of nowhere.  This means that I have to drive, a lot.  When I moved to England I had visions of red buses and rolling, green countryside.  We ended up in the “Kansas” of England.  Flat everywhere – you can see for miles.  And, while it has a unique beauty, there…
