    Interesting stories Nicole. The Madewell history was a great read, inspiring. Love that the families worked together for so many years. What goes around comes around obviously. (re: designing, selling and of course, profit) J. Crew’s (current) fashions and quality are okay by me. I’ve purchased countless items over the years. Always on sale. Everyone always needs clothing! P.S. Babies are being born everyday. They gotta wear something. Ha!

    I found the postpartum article very interesting, especially given the fact that you are blogging days after giving birth! I hope you are not pushing yourself too hard. I wonder if part of the Young House Love meltdown is from not taking enough of a rest. Anyway, I always make sure to read your Friday article links. You always find the most interesting things. Regards!

    That Madewell article had such a strange tone to it. The writer was super proprietary in tone for a company he really had nothing to do with…but later seemed fine with it, except not really. I get that he was speaking more about marketing and such, but it was odd. Interesting, though.

    Thank you for the breastfeeding article! I, too, was unable to breastfeed my babies and have dealt with the “Nazis.” It would be lovely if we could all be mothers who fed our babies the best we could with no judgement!

    Having just given birth to my son 6 days ago via c-section, I was especially interested in the postpartum article. I had no idea how differently things are done elsewhere. I’m so grateful for the help I’ve received from my husband, my mother-in-law (who sadly had to drive home today after staying with us) and my mom who lives near us. It still has not been easy and I have felt guilty that I’m not doing everything I normally would. Even with their help, I’ve washed some dishes, cleaned minimally, etc. because I wanted to feel normal and not just guilty that others were catering to me. This is a good reminder that I should slow down when it hurts and rest when I can. Hope you are doing well as you recover.
