  1. Dream Big

    Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions. Why not change it up this year and create a dream board instead? If you aren’t familiar with the concept, a dream board is literally just that – a board to pin up visuals that represent your dreams and goals. Big or small, the power lies in seeing your dreams in front of your eyes each and every day. And when you maintain focus on those goals, you work harder to make them come true. We’re working on ours now and we are...

  2. Exhale and Enjoy

    Here we are, just two days before Christmas and the last of our lockets have been packed and shipped. It’s been quite a December for us and we are grateful for the lovely feedback, mentions and orders we have received. It exceeded our own high expectations! With that said, starting a new company is a 24/7 kind of commitment and our families have been incredibly patient with us best weightloss pills. These next few days, we are all looking forward to the long exhale, late morning snuggles and lingering family...

  3. Merry Everything

    Holiday cards are having their moment. Companies like Minted, Tiny Prints and Shutterfly have revolutionized the way we create and send cards. I arrive home each day to find small stacks of holiday tidings that fill my home with photos of friends and family, near and far, who all hold a special place in my heart. With messages of Joy, Peace and Love calling out, my favorite of all is Merry Everything! Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Lunar New Year and more! It reminds me of a December years ago...

  4. The Gift of Giving

    In this season of giving, there are an overwhelming number of messages about shopping and sales and gifts. And, just when I felt like we’ve gone so far down the commercialization path that the entire world has forgotten the true meaning of the holidays, I had a moment with my three year old that restored my hope. The story starts with Sheila, our caregiver and one of the most special women to walk this earth. She is smart, warm, kind and loves our daughter, Olivia, almost as much as we...

  5. Gratitude

    There are so many things to give thanks for today. Our families and friends. Our health and the love that fills our lives. The good fortune we have had this year as we embarked on the journey to bring our concept for With You into fruition. And, during this time of thanks, we would like to send out a very special Thank You to all of the amazing individuals who came forward to support our Kickstarter campaign. Without all of you, we could not have gotten to where we are...

  6. Brides and Babies

    We spent the last week sharing our lockets with hundreds (yes, we said hundreds) of brides and moms-to-be at two different events where women gather to see the latest and greatest wedding and baby products. So inspiring to be in rooms filled with such love! We couldn't help but think of the opening scene of Love Actually when Hugh Grant talks about all the love you find in airports as people reunite with their loved ones. And it made us go home and hug our families a little tighter than...

  7. Unsung Heroes

    During my 24 years of service, one of my favorite photos was one taken of me with a bunch of Somali kids at an orphanage in Mogadishu circa 1993. I believed then – and still do today – that our service men and women are the ambassadors for all the good people in our country, representing the best of our values and ideals. As I sit here and write, there is a mom, who also happens to be an Army nurse, taking time away from her family to build a...

  8. Reliving an Hour of Your Life

    On Sunday, we turned our clocks back as we brace ourselves for the long winter months that await. My kids got such a kick out of the fact that we would repeat the same hour TWICE in one day that it got me thinking. How I wish we had the power to really turn back time and relive one precious hour again. While pregnant with my first child, I worked with a man who told me how envious he was of what lie ahead of me. He said he would...

  9. Trick or Treat

    Halloween is just days away. And if you are a parent – or simply have a kid in your life that you love – you know that the build up is pretty epic. Weeks of planning all culminating in this one fantastic moment when kids’ imaginations run wild and they get the chance to become superheroes, monsters, Disney princesses, farm animals and a whole host of other beings. And, if you are said parent or loved one, you know that the fever is contagious. It immediately brings you rushing back...

    Keeping Love Close

    As I sit on the train making my way home from NYC, I am enjoying a beautiful view of the Hudson River. But, I’m looking forward to the day that I no longer enjoy it quite so often. For the last four years, I’ve commuted almost four hours a day, three times a week to Manhattan. I do some of my best thinking on the train and a little over a year ago, I started to consider ways that I could keep on doing what I do, but doing it...
