Meet Jenae

Meet Jenae

If you are looking for a truly spectacular fall family photographer – or someone whose presence just makes you feel calmer immediately- Jenae may be a perfect fit! Mom of two, and formerly a Creative Producer and Event Director, Jenae followed the creative itch she felt pushing her toward photography a few years ago, and never looked back! She loves the beach in Westport, wishes True Food would come here one day, and in another life (one where she was a morning person!), she might be a Today Show news anchor! For now, she is excited about capturing the beauty of fall, studying to be a spiritual director, and trying to make some artistic sense of the chaos that is today.

Meet Candice!

Meet Candice!

For anyone with a child in the Westport school system, Candice (aka Candi) Savin has become a household name, and someone whose dedication to the Westport School System – and all things education – goes nearly unmatched. In addition to being a prominent and vocal member of the Board of Education (BOE) since 2016, Candi runs her own Real Estate Law Firm and just saw her oldest child graduate Staples in June! As a CT native, she loves beach nights followed by ice cream, is an avid paddle boarder – and skier – and would love to see a true “seafood shack” come to Westport! As we venture into the most unique school year yet, we are incredibly lucky to have Candi at the helm, and are so grateful for all she – and the BOE – does! Thank you, Thank you!

Meet Jane Rosen – Author of our first Local Moms Network Book Club Book! (A perfect Summer read!)

Meet Jane Rosen – Author of our first Local Moms Network Book Club Book! (A perfect Summer read!)

We’re thrilled to launch The Local Moms Book Club with Eliza Starts a Rumor! The book revolves around Eliza Hunt, a mom who created the Hudson Valley Ladies’ Bulletin board when her twins were in preschool. Cue the mom forum drama (a la today’s social media groups) and you have a funny story that reveals the power of moms coming together, which we of course love. Katie Couric called it “the perfect summer read” and we have to agree. We spoke to author Jane Rosen, herself a mom of three, about her inspiration, writing career and summer reading list.

Dock & Dine Restaurants with Water Views

For locals in Fairfield County, the Long Island Sound can make summer feel like a vacation. Boating is even more popular these days, lending itself to the perfect social distancing activity. Waterfront restaurants are a lovely way to dine alfresco, with an added bonus of “dock and dine” options. We’ve put together a list of area restaurants where boating to dinner is part of the culinary experience. Don’t have a boat? No worries…you can also drive to these scenic spots!

Meet Lindsay – and EPIC 365!

Meet Lindsay – and EPIC 365!

While this strange time has many of us feeling stuck or craving the return to “normal life,” mom of two and certified Occupational Therapist, Lindsay Yellin used these last 4 months to turn her dream of building a one-of-a-kind playspace for kids into launching an app – EPIC Play 365 – designed to help families have 30-minutes of daily intentional connectivity time together while enjoying an EPIC PLAY activity. Though It just launched in late July, the response has been tremendous! In her free time, Lindsay loves time at Compo beach, and shares the fun fact that she and her husband met on JDate (and were the company’s poster child couple for 6 months!) Her enthusiasm for what she is doing is contagious, and we look forward to watching this rockstar mom take the world by storm!!
