We’re getting the new year off to a fabulous start with some big Barefoot steps forward.  We’ve acquired BabbaCo, the e-commerce subscription company dedicated to helping parents create fun, memorable experiences for their children.

Oh, the bittersweet transition from the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer…

I relish our family summer holiday time – our spirited conversations over dinner, on car journeys and long walks– reminiscing about previous holidays, singing, dancing and sharing funny moments. It is our chance, in our otherwise frenzied existence, to unwind and just be together.

I had a rare, rewarding experience this year – a moment when all the various strands of my life seemed to align, offering a glimmer of validation for my role as a parent and for my work at Barefoot. In that moment, I was able to put all of the complexities of my life in refreshingly simple perspective. In August, I embarked on an unforgettable adventure with my eldest daughter Meaghan to create a children’s library in Sebikotane, a small village in Senegal in West Africa.
