With summer break in sight, working moms everywhere are making their summer nanny plans. Calling college girls, budgeting childcare funds, and reserving kid camp weeks. Most of us working moms love our jobs. But all of us love our kids more.
It’s tough receiving fun summer kid pics texts from your nanny while you sit in your board meeting wearing a pencil skirt. Maybe that’s a little over traditionalizing it, but I know you’ve felt the same twinge I have when you leave a crying child in someone else’s care so you can get to the office on time.

Spring is officially here! The flowers are blooming, the weather is perfect, and Easter season is upon us. Whether your family celebrates with Easter baskets, a special meal, or crafting the day away, we have almost all experienced the joys of the egg hunt.
I remember desperately running and collecting eggs filled with candy, knick-knacks, and sometimes even money. Now as a parent, I get to be creative and fill the eggs with all kinds of goodies.

The longer days and growing warmer weather bring many excited thoughts of summer ahead. We’re playing in the backyard with neighbors every night. We’ve gotten smoothies, iced coffee, and frozen custard 4 times in the past week, which isn’t going to be good for my summer waistline. And apparently I’m the last one to Airbnb search options for a mini vacation to our nearby beach towns because only the pink carpeted 1 bedroom studios are left.

Maybe it was the first day of spring. Maybe it was the sunshine. Or maybe it was the cherry water ice spill all over the backseat that finally made me do it. But yesterday when we unloaded backpacks from the backseat, I started a car cleaning overhaul.
I dug out old Party Muffin packages, half-eaten cheddar Goldfish heads, broken crayons, and dried lollipop sticks. I also found my favorite long lost necklace from 4 years ago. Honestly, I have purged the car since then but maybe our new Shopvac has strength that sucked that jewel from the car crack depths.

Is a company the best when it excels over all others? When it is larger and bigger than the competitors? When it announces that it is officially the best? Well, Webster says all of those options work.
But at Rhea Lana’s we prefer to listen to our consignors, our owners, and our shoppers to gauge how good we are. We want to say a huge THANK YOU to our consignors, our owners, and our shoppers who continue to vote us the best.

Alexandria Mills is a woman who knows how to work hard. She’s a wife. She’s a mother to an 8-month-old son. And she still finds time to run her own business.
With a background in engineering, Alexandria has been a longtime learner with high career aspirations and accomplishments. All of that was fulfilling…but very time consuming. When Alexandria became a mother she wanted to spend her time differently.

Happy March! In many places, this means flowers blooming and sunny days ahead. Unfortunately, for this southern girl, I moved my family to the Northeast last summer. So even though our bodies think March 1 means spring, our weather forecasts snow this weekend.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t freshen up for spring in cold weather. All the more reason to get our homes spring ready.

Each season has its own style. Look for our favorites for spring fashion while you’re out shopping for pieces for the warmer weather that is on its way.
It’s great when comfortable, “non-itchy” styles are in. Am I right, moms? Every soft, pull on pair of pants I can justify buying is a win in my book. Easy on. Easy off. And no crying over buttons and zippers. Joggers are cool, versatile, and fuss free for boys and girls.

When you hear about a bully at your child’s school, what’s your reaction? When you see another headline of hurt somewhere across the country, how do you feel? When a friend tells you about an unkindness that happened because of gender, a special need, family background, or even the neighborhood she lives in how do you respond?
