Photos from this week

I’m on day 135 of wearing the same dress every day. Using Eucerin’s Redness Relief line for my rosacea which has helped a lot. I just finished the first tube and I see a big difference in my complexion. The winter weather seems to be throwing me for a little bit of a loop again though.

Took some practice photos for a big upcoming project with Sarah

Dave and I went on a date and he got me a new lipstick. So much better than flowers or jewelry and such a nice surprise. I picked a good guy!

I found this box on our counter and asked Alice what it said. She said “It’s my name! A-L-I-C-E!” I can sort of make it out there. She’s doin’ good!

And this little face makes me smile every day. The hat helps, too.

I hope you had a lovely weekend and that you’re capturing all the moments as annoyingly as you wanna.

    Same dress every day? I think I missed this project…did you buy a bunch in different colors?

    I LOVE that lipstick idea. I love practical gifts too – I’d be way more flattered to receive a lipstick than flowers!

      Nevermind! Went through the archives and refreshed my memory. Love it!

      yes! I bought two of them in September and now, thanks to watching eBay, I have about 11. I’m writing something more substantive about it this week.

How long until women don’t need to marry a technical cofounder?

Right now I'm listening to founders Susan Koger (Modcloth), Susan Feldman (One Kings Lane), and Julia Hartz (Eventbrite) on the Commonwealth Club on NPR. As I'm hearing them speak, I'm noticing a very common pattern between their stories that I have not recognized before.

Five things I’ve learned as a full-time Airbnb host

1. Airbnb is actually about entrepreneurship (which can kind of sneak up on you).
When I started hosting, it was truly out of desperation because I needed a way to fund the new company I was building. When I made my first few hundred dollars in a month with seemingly little effort, I realized that by taking hosting more seriously I could avoid what I thought was the inevitability of needing a part-time job (in addition to my 60-hour/week at Hello Holiday plus parenting my daughter). As my personal finances were dwindling, I could never have stomached the idea that starting a second business would be the solution, which is why the possibility of so much hosting success surprised me.

OOTD: Summer Sweater

That thing where it's 420 degrees outside and 69 degrees inside.

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.
