    It has been quite a while since I have been ‘on the Blog.’ It has been a very busy season for Pennymeade and as we continue to grow, unfortunately, writing on the blog falls to the bottom of the ‘to do’ list. I do, however, want to share some accessory ideas with you as we head into the busy Holiday season….     Holiday season…Yes! A little phrase that brings about as much joy and delight as fear and stress! That magical time of year when we run around for Christmas card photo outfits and lose our Christmas...

  Please watch the video above and learn more about the Charlotte & Gweneth Gray Foundation.  As I watched the video several days ago, tears began to roll down my face. I couldn't help but think, what if this was one of my babies... or all of them... what would I do? When I reached the part in the video when Gordon says, "I'm not going to give up hope or give fighting, I have to believe that I am going to save my girls," the cause rang home. They are not asking for much; they are simply asking for everyone to donate $1. $1...

Spring has Sprung!

It has been a long (very long) cold, cold winter. And as luck would have it, the air warmed and the flowering trees all seemed to take notice just as moms near and far took to social media to post beautiful pics of their children in their blooming best. And I couldn’t help but think of how the long, cold winter suddenly ended with a burst of spring not just on the trees, but on the children! The dormant shrubs of the past season were ready for new life – just like the kids’ wardrobes! Floral dresses! Flirty ruffles! Pastel...

As a mother of four young children, the messages we send to our kids – boys and girls alike – is so very important to me. It’s part of what drives me to pursue a passion and work hard to run a business. With every Pennymeade shipment I am showing my kids that mommies can love them fiercely, have a career, have an identity, and still put dinner on the table (okay, well most nights anyway!).  It’s why I, like so many of you, just loved the Always “Like A Girl” commercial that debuted at the Super Bowl. I was...

Throwback Thursday: Holiday Highlights

Tags christmas, family fun, new years, pennymeade, throwback thursday

Ah, the January blues. When finally the dust, or more appropriately, the glitter, has settled from the holidays, I find myself looking back at the whirlwind that was with both longing and contentment. The festiveness of December goes so fast each year, only to be replaced with cold, dark, sometimes snowy days. But keeping us warm are lots of memories from a magical holiday season.  On this Throwback Thursday, I’m turning the calendar back just one page to last month – a month filled with much joy, laughter, and love. Here are my top ten memories from our Happy Holidays…...
