GREENWICH VILLAGE — lf life imitates art, then the glamorous pieces that fashion designer Caterine Sanchez brings to fruition are clothes that embrace sensuality, femininity, imagination and nature, while incorporating movement, hand-drawn images and if one digs a little deeper - even symbolizes her admiration for a group of friars.
“I’m really close with the friars, I love them a lot,” Sanchez said. “It’s just the community, the love, the animals, St. Francis.”

First up, we'll be featuring Jo's best friend, Donna, also known as “Beffie.”
"We have been friends since second grade and we finally got to experience pregnancy together," she said. "We can’t wait to raise our newborns with one another!"

|Maternity clothes aren't the cheapest so keep in mind how often you'll be wearing them.|
My current and last pregnancy have given me a run for my money with maternity clothes. Not only do you have to find clothes that fit, you also have to make sure you’re prepared for the weather. Unfortunately, for me, there is no preparing for Texas weather. For those women who are in their last planned pregnancy, the question remains: is it worth buying maternity wear?

|"As I reflect on everything 2020 has brought upon us, |
I try to appreciate the good and learn from the bad."
As I reflect on everything 2020 has brought upon us, I try to appreciate the good and learn from the bad. One of the COVID effects that was hard for a first-time mother was the inability to socialize BJ as much as I wanted (playdates, etc.) nor were we able to throw a huge and exciting first birthday party that I had imagined for months.
But what I did learn to appreciate is that BJ didn’t need an over-the-top party. All he needed was to be surrounded by the people who loved him most (and having his first ever Happy Meal 😊).
