  1. Dear Kelly,

    Your blog/website/work is fabulous. Having started my own coaching and PD parenting workshop business last fall, I swing between green with envy and being inspired by looking at your blog. You have so many great and on point themes, just what parents want, need and request the most often.
    thank you.

    Kathleen

  2. Thanks Kathleen! It’s taken lots of baby steps to get it all together! I still have a part of my website that I can’t figure out how to edit! (Called my tech guy today to set up an appointment.) Just look at the next step you need to take to get where you want!
