Lessons from TEDx Piscataqua River

I had the good fortune to be one of 100 attendees to today’s TEDx Piscataqua River event at the newly renovated and super impressive 3S Artspace.  If you’re not familiar with TED talks you should crawl out from under your comfy rock and watch this list of must-sees to acquaint yourself.

About Hey Look, a Duck!

I’m just back from the Mom 2.0 blogger conference in Scottsdale, AZ which I attended as a sponsor. Meeting all of the amazing and inspiring bloggers there made me realize how much I miss actually sitting down and writing about things. And so, I decided to start this blog. You’re welcome!
