After the birth of our first daughter, Grace, and several years of city motherhood, we moved to Westchester County where I found friends and home, not to mention a place to park my stroller. Our house centered around my great kitchen window where I can look out and see the glorious seasons change against my garden and stone wall. The birth of my second daughter, Katie, prompted me to try it my own way as a lifestyle expert and author. Punch, It's Five O'Clock Somewhere, Fairy Parties and The Stylish Girl's Guide to Fabulous Cocktails were soon born along with my son, Jack -- making my family of five complete.   iVillage Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of NBC Universal, Inc., is the first and most established media company dedicated exclusively to connecting women at every stage of their lives. offers an authentic and robust community infused with compelling content from experts on health, parenting, pregnancy, beauty, style, fitness, relationships, food and entertainment.
