To quote a wise woman. . .

“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.”

It’s not easy to talk about it

But miscarriage and stillbirths are common, painful and unpredictable.

If you’ve ever wondered what to say to a friend who has a miscarriage or infant loss (and, importantly, what not to say), we talked to pregnancy loss expert Dr. Jessica Zucker about how to find the right words. ?

And hey, it’s okay. . .

If you ever miss your pre-baby love life. (We do, too). So if you’re pining for the long-ago days of boozy Saturday brunches and extended sexy vacations, dive right down memory lane. Because at the end of the day, “the love we built as Bride and Groom hasn’t disappeared—it has simply multiplied.” ?

You know you want it

Many Millennials say that flexibility—the ability to complete their work when and where they want to (hellooooo beach front office!)—is a highly desired trait in their careers. But how do you get this mysteriously flexible job?

Flex work expert Manon DeFelice shares her 7 steps to get more flexibility. Step one? ASK. ?

Speaking of getting away

If you ever feel like motherhood doesn’t have an off switch—well, it’s because it doesn’t. But here’s to motherhood, the toughest, messiest, never-ending, best job out there. It’s crazy-demanding. And we love it anyway. ?

Yours in hard things.
