Jenny’s Rainy Day Letter (Hope in an Envelope 8)

Yay! Jenny is here , with her very own Rainy Day Letter. This  letter is short and sweet, but don’t let the brevity fool you. In her wisdom, she packed a whole lot of permission and care into this gem.   (Are you new here? A Rainy Day Letter is a message you write to yourself when…

Yuz takes off the mask

I am beyond thrilled to have my dear friend Yuz here today, all the way from Melbourne Australia. We met online through #ppdchat and fell in love with each other. We have so much in common, PPD and being Jewish are just the tip of the iceberg.  This post is about telling her story on her…

New location for the Ithaca mothers’ support group

I’ve been leading the Ithaca PPD support group for 16 months. Since October 2010, our meetings took place at the lovely and amazing community room at the natural parenting store in downtown Ithaca. The owner, Mandy, and her team were so wonderfully supportive. I thought it was perfect: right on the Ithaca Commons (the downtown…

Long Live the Empress: Alexandra of Good Day Regular People

Look darlings, is here! I adore her, and her blog is one of the most comforting, nourishing, loving places in the whole wide internet. Case and point: on Valentine’s day most of the internet made me want to puke, ? Made me do something good that day.  And she is visiting us here, with her…

Because of Heidi: Introducing Olaaf, the olfactory elf.

I meant to write about the that is happening on Tuesday which happens to be Valentine’s day, but this came out instead. I’m a bit shy about it, but it really is time I told you about Olaaf. He is an imaginary friend, but he is very real. He goes wherever I go, and I…

It’s February, Got Self Love? (words of wisdom from Jaya the Trust Coach)

My dear friend Jaya works with people on living life from a loving stance of unwavering trust. I worked with her a couple of years ago and she helped me with my relationship with my husband. What I learned from her helped me fight less: fewer fights with him, and more importantly, fewer fights with myself.  Jaya…

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…

Comparing the PPD to Joy offerings

It all started with the Ithaca support meetings, then came the PPD SpeakEasy support phone chat. Since I added classes to the PPDtoJoy offerings, you now have 4 options to choose from. All of my events share these basic ideas: Motherhood is hard, you are not a bad mom, coping skills can make your life…

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….

December Love Letter for mom: Speakeasy call tonight, Sunday Comfort Camp and more

I just sent out the december PPD to Joy Love letter for Mom. With a reminder for tonight’s PPD SpeakEasy call. Did you get it?  I didn’t. It went into my spam folder. Which is rather ironic considering that beginning of that letter is a rant about tech problems… And we have new call numbers for…
