Andrea’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 9)

I’m so happy to have Andrea here, guest posting with her very own Rainy Day Letter. Andrea blogs at postpartumandpigtails.com/ (Are you new here? A Rainy Day Letter is a message you write to yourself when you are having a good day, so you can read it on your bad days. It’s like a helping hand,…

Susan’s Story

I am so honored to have Susan’s trust with this post. Susan  (@learndhappiness on twitter ) is a member of my Mama’s Comfort Camp group, and her insights and sweetness always inspire me. She shared her lovely Rainy Day Letter with us last year, and she bloggs at learnedhappiness.wordpress.com/ – – – Of all the things I regret about my time with…

A new look, and a SpeakEasy support chat tonight

Have you noticed the change?  This website used to look like this: The clean and popular WordPress Theme Misty Look served me well, but it’s time for bigger and better  more flexible things. I’m excited about having a column on each side of the post area, and even more excited about the new navigation and…

Instead of resolutions: a Permission Slip to Slip.

And the the giveaway winner is: Laura. Hugs to all who didn’t win this time, more chances coming soon. This post is dedicated to my beloved #ppdchat friends. I’ve been so consumed  with creating events and classes here in Ithaca, that I’ve been rather absent on twitter. I miss you all, I’ll be back soon….

Sarah’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 7)

My In-Real-Life friend Sarah is here today. I Love this letter so much, that I put it up on the wall in my office. Sarah is not on twitter, and she doesn’t blog either. But boy, she can write! I hope she will start a blog soon, let’s encourage her in the comments. Are you…

Overwhelmed Central

Writing this post in bed, with the intention of making sure that you all know that tomorrow’s #PPDSpeakEasy call is cancelled, and explaining why: Last week was hard on a lot of people in the #ppd community. In response, I called an emergency PPD Speakeasy phone chat that was like a comfort camp. It was sweet…

Becky’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 6)

Yay, Becky (@beckykid) is here today with her very own Rainy Day Letter. This letter is so sweet, and full of great suggestions of things you could do next time you are feeling down.  Are you new here? The Hope in an Envelope collection started in this post: The Opportunity in Setbacks and Rainy Days Letters. The idea is to write…

The PPD Kooky Jar

This is an old post, now new and improved, revisited for two reasons: one, my neck issues are making it hard to write new posts these days. But more importantly, I wrote this in November 2010, when my blog was still a baby. Chances are you’ve never seen this before, and kookys taste much better…

Susan’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 4)

Yay! Susan is here! (I love her twitter name: @learndhappiness) with her very own Rainy Day Letter. What a sweet, wise letter. I particularly care for the list of good moments which can act as evidence and proof that you are undeniably a good mother. Having such a list is really good for those times when the PPDemons…

A letter from an Imperfect Momma (Hope in an Envelope 3)

Today we are fortunate to have Jessica (@imperfectmomma on Twitter) visiting us with her response to this: The Opportunity in Setbacks and Rainy Days Letters. I adore the spunk in her letter. And the wisdom. If you too are in recovery from PPD, next time you are feeling “totally yourself”, save some for a rainy day: put some of…
