  • A Christmas Message from Elaine and Jim…

    December 19, 2018 by

    It’s A Wonderful Life Dear Friends and Family, As we commemorate the holiday season and reflect upon the past year, our family feels privileged. When I say privileged, I’m not talking about having some sort of unfair advantage or material gain, I am talking about the privilege of acknowledging and understanding our blessings. Our very… Read more

  • A Letter of Thanks

    November 21, 2018 by

    Dear Friends, On this Thanksgiving Day as I stand on the precipice of profound transformation and change, I’m called to reflect upon memories made, moments shared, time had and time lost. I once read that gratitude arises from simply paying attention. For me this feels right. Thankfulness is born from being fully awake and present… Read more

  • Transition Into Fall With Ease

    September 19, 2018 by

    Is it global warming or perimenopause? I can’t tell. But I do know one thing for sure— I am HOT, people. I’m seeing pumpkins and gourds on porches which is making me itch because I’m not ready to think about sweaters, fur and leggings (OH MY!) Even though fall is upon us, I’m not ready… Read more

    July 22, 2018 by

    Fashion has this funny way of connecting us all. We all experience the cyclical trends together. One moment we are all bell-bottomed out coiffing our Farrah Fawcett hair and the next minute we are tossing aside the wide bottomed jeans for wide shoulders (shoulder pads should have never happened) and perms. These moments are cringe-worthy… Read more

    July 2, 2018 by

    I have a confession to make.   A big one.   One that has me feeling like I haven’t been completely honest with you. I consider us sisters, a girl gang, a Spanx wearing, wine loving tribe – and I hate that I haven’t been transparent with you. Over the last 6 months I’ve been… Read more

  • The Shoulda, Coulda, Wouldas

    June 24, 2018 by

    As human beings we are often programmed to live life in forward retrospect. While time is moving forward your mind keeps going back. I like to call this a case of the shoulda, coulda, wouldas. Often times this is brought on by menial daily things like ‘I shoulda said something to that mom who looked… Read more

  • Fighting the Good Fight.

    May 13, 2018 by

    To the moms who never feel adequate and the moms who wake up tired and go to bed even more exhausted. To the helicopter moms, the granola moms, and the cool moms. To the moms who ever ever wondered how they wound up so #BLESSED and the moms who have locked themselves in closets to… Read more

  • Hot off the press.

    March 29, 2018 by

    Spring fever is setting in, and in true Elaine fashion I have started my spring cleaning. Nothing is quite as euphoric as throwing something away. Actually that’s not true- I can tell you several things that are more euphoric, but let’s just say tossing junk is in my top 10. It is around this time… Read more
