Hopenhagen

We are currently in Denmark with the family. The City has been buzzing with coverage of COP 15 ‘The Climate Summit’ and its been very interesting to listen to all the news broadcasts about the decisions being made (and not made) by so many world leaders all gathered in little Denmark.
On Friday, unlike a usual day at the office, Mr Obama kept us waiting. First we waited for hours to hear President Obama’s speech on Danish TV and then in the evening after seeing Eddie Izzard in Sweden we found the bridge between Sweden and Denmark closed for a short time while Obama’s plane took off from Kastrup airport.
Denmark has always been a very green place to live. To be honest, it was a bit of a culture shock for Ronnie and I, when we first arrived in the U.S to see how people lived; Tumble driers on constantly, air-conditioning pumping, huge cars. However, I think things have changed in the last few years. We, like most people we know are steadily becoming more conscious of how we live and how we consume – electricity, gas, products.

For most, this last year’s economic climate has only strengthened this. There is irony in that silver lining!

Miracle Blanket

Tiny little miracles.

Admittedly, I was skeptical. This had to be a gimmick. Like the teddy bear with the sound of a human heart-beat meant to mimic an in-utero environment for baby (my babies must have been screaming in-utero, because that was the environment created by this somewhat creepy-looking bear). Another “promise to make your baby sleep” product, that was really just a blanket. Even the name –Miracle Blanket – a joke, right?

I was several weeks from delivering my fourth baby when the package arrived. I saw the return address and knew it would be something good. My girlfriend Jen is a notoriously great gift giver. So I was surprised when I opened the envelope to find a pink “Miracle Blanket” inside. I had just given away an entire Rubbermaid tub filled with blankets. My three older children shared in my disappointment. “It’s just a blanket, mom.”

Belly Bars – Next Time I Promise To Share

A few weeks ago Ronnie and I met with Leslie S. Barber from Belly Bars (Nutra Bella). We’ve known each other for a while now – running into her and her business partner Meredith at various trade shows and such. It’s always nice to meet up with fellow entrepreneurs – sharing stories about how we got started – some funny, some unbelievable!
One of my good friends is very pregnant right now, so Leslie very kindly gave me some of their products so that I could pass them on to her. I’d like to say that they all made it safely to my friend, but something about the lovely packaging and the fact that they are healthy and delicious…well…in my defense, Belly Bar products are made for before, during and after pregnancy…I wonder if six years later counts??
Later this month we will be giving all of our online customers a chance to try the ‘Baby Needs Chocolate’ Belly Bar in our ‘No Tricks, Just Treats’ promotion. Stay tuned!

What Does Your Fabric Print Choice Say About You?

I recently read this article Fabric Patterns Tell on You and I started thinking about what my choice in fabrics would say about me. Everyday this week I’ve worn solid prints, not a polka dot or flower in sight – apparently then, I am full of mystery and give nothing away…however I spend my days thinking of all manner of prints and colors and so maybe, just maybe, I am a mixture of all of the descriptions… but then, aren’t we all? I think it would be more true to say that our clothing choices in the morning are a representation of our mood on that particular day.

Tomorrow I might be feeling more like this:
