We're getting ready for some business growth here at Momtrends. And the timing feels right. Is it just me or can you smell change in the air? After spending my summer as full-time mom, my kids are heading back to school'??both are now in school five days a week.
I'??ve savored every moment (ok maybe not the meltdowns) of my summer with the ladies. We grew closer as a family as I saw every little milestone as I flew without a sitter this summer. From seeing the language of the little one explode to being there when the older girl lost her first tooth'??it'??s been a great ride.
In addition to the family news, we'??ve mostly finished decorating our new apartment. Well, now I'??m turning some TLC to Momtrends. We'??ve got some big things underfoot and it's time to share the news.
On Wednesdays, Brandon Smith (you can check out his saucy prose here www,dcoopsd.wordpress.com/) will be representing men, the West Coast and all things cool in the world of design. A big assignment no? We haven'??t named his new column yet, but it'??s going to focus on design trends and it'??s going to be fab.

What am I going to be doing? Fret not dear readers. I'??m going to be throwing myself into two ventures. First, I'm going to be focusing on fashion trends more than ever. It seems the more fashion coverage we give you, the more you comment, read and share. Second, I'm going to be marketing Momtrends. That means more speaking engagements, videos and events. We're in growth mode and it'??s time to spread the word about all the fabulous things going on at Momtrends. My mission is to find the coolest brands to highlight and the best partners to make our business flourish.
