Last week, Liz left us with a quote from Alice Parker that hit home for me -- “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” I just loved it and it made me think about the power of a good self pep talk.

Star Wars Day: Lessons from The Force!

Our New York office happens to be housed in the wonderful WeWork Bryant Park location, and we love all of the special things they do for us as members -- that includes celebrating one of my favorite days of the year, May 4, aka Star Wars Day!

Each Cutliner took a letter of the alphabet, drew a picture of something that started with the letter, laminated it and BOOM, instant DIY art for our itty-bitty nursery. I loved it - crafting is my thing!  Read more
