As a mother of two young boys and a new daughter, my mind is full of things I want to do, books I wish I were reading, friends I need to write, things I need to buy, places I want to be going and how to get my pre-baby body back. I am always on the lookout for great products, practical solutions and creative design. This is a sampling of a thousand thoughts I have, usually when there is no paper or pen around! If you would like to contact me, please email – thanks!

    Suzanne-can’t wait to hear all about the latest and greatest things you have to offer. So happy you are posting all your fantastic information in one place–so easy for me! Can you post that brie and cranberry recipe-of course I can’t find it 🙂

    I just looked at your blog- I absolutely love it! It will be an excellent resource for myself and other moms. I wish I saw this before I bought all my teacher gifts!

    You are really an amazing person. Maureen sent me the info on it and I am not shocked at all that you came up with such a great idea. I can’t wait to see where this whole idea brings you. Way to go- It’s really exciting! Looks like you are doing great. I’m so glad!

    We are in Arlington Heights and happy. I’d love to catch up with you. Send me an email when you get a chance.
    Talk to you soon! Katie

    Great blogsite. Seriously good tips to go by. I’ll definitely have to use some of these ideas when Nick gets a bit older.

    This is a great idea and a great read. Unfortunately I can’t get most of the stuff here in the UK but I’ve been trying to find some close equivalents. I’ve also got a wishlist for my next trip to the U.S:-)

    Love the site Suz – Great ideas and frequent posts = success! Like Gaynor, trying to find some of this stuff in Canada is a pain in the @!#@ (wish we had Trader Joe’s, and See Kai Run, to name a couple) but c’est la vie.
    I will be checking back often : )

    Forgot to add – one of the things I’m loving right now are Mabel’s Labels. They’re Canadian but have been on The View and they ship to the U.S. They have labels for all your kid’s stuff…from bottles, to socks, to shoes, to camp gear, they have a sticky label (that doesn’t come off) for everything! All very cute too with little icons and fun colours.

    Hey Suz –
    Not sure if this is the best place to put in requests but here goes : )

    Any great vacation/destination ideas for families with young children other than the usual disneyworld vacay?

    Love the blog! Very impressed! Hope you are well!

    Hey there
    First of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY tomorrow!!! I love your site and have been sharing it with all the moms I know (not me yet but aunties love it too). I just found this site and thought you might want to check it out – it reminds me of your handwriting – this girl takes everyone’s handwriting and for FREE makes it into fonts that everyone can download for FREE – I have gotten them and have more than 370 of them! I think it would be cool for invites – some of the handwriting is awesome – plus she does doodles. Seriously don’t even know her but her stuff and site is so involved. Anyhow – glad to be able to follow you on your blog! Have a great bday!

    Always a fun moment when I see your new posting each day! Thanks!

    You will have a wonderful time wherever you are – I have never met anyone who can light up a city or a sad roomate – like you can.
