“I wish I could say I meditate and do yoga and all that, but I don’t. It’s daily mayhem of work and parenting, work and mommy-ing. I feel like the love I get from my kids, is my me time. It’s not relaxing. I’ve never been more tired in my life.”

“I grew up going to the Hamptons every summer since I was born. That’s where Rodger and I got engaged, and where Skyler and Kaius both went into the ocean for the first time. I’ve also celebrated almost every birthday and anniversary in the Hamptons since both are just before Labor Day.”

“The Hamptons is the place that means family to me. I told my family I was pregnant with my first child at Nick and Toni’s, and I got engaged at the dock at East Hampton Point, which is now Moby’s. And the memories go on and on.”

“We just celebrated our twenty-seventh anniversary and twenty years of marriage. We both have this theory that if your relationship is right, it actually should be the easiest part of your life. Everything else in our life is hard — the challenges of growing a business, having employees, raising children.”

“He and I are actually the easy part. At this point we’ve been together for more than half our lives, so it’s just how we exist. But we still can bicker. There are times we are Lucy and Ricky and other times we are the Notebook couple. We exist with each other and don’t know how to do it any other way. No one knows me better in this world.”

“I find many times that people on the most limited budgets have the best style because it forces them to be more creative. I believe putting your absolute best self out there is transformative in every way. I think it really makes you look at yourself differently and feel differently. What matters most is how you feel.”
