And I Wouldn't Change a Thing

Rachel thanks her amazing team -- including Jeremiah -- for making her life incredibly blessed.

At first, the idea of going back to work after Skyler was born was pretty difficult to swallow. Thankfully the transition has been fairly easy, because I get to bring Skyler with me everywhere. I have to say -- it's kind of crazy that all day, despite being at a photoshoot for my own collection, all I could think about was my son. It was seriously bizarre. Of course I love my job and I'm so passionate about my collection, but seriously the whole time all I could think about was being with Skyler. I was constantly wondering where he was, what he was doing, did I hear him crying –- I just needed to see him and to hold him every second. Thank goodness my team was so prepared that the shoot went flawlessly. Mandana nailed it, just as I knew she would. I truly have the most incredible team.

Even though Jeremiah did an incredible job designing my house, I was a little nervous about the store-in-store at Bloomingdale's. This collection is like my second child. I know Jeremiah has a great eye, but I still worried since there was a lot riding on this. This installation would set the tone for how my whole collection would be presented in stores, and the fact that I hadn't seen it before the Bloomingdale's team made me even more nervous. But as usual -- my team inevitably pulled it off beautifully, and the space looked great -- so much so that Bloomindgale's decided to put this installation in eight of their stores around the country. No words.

I had some pretty insane, but amazing first couple of weeks back at work so Rodger and I figured what better way to show our love and appreciation to our incredible team than to host a little family BBQ. We were thrilled to be able to share our new home with everyone. It was a great night -- in fact, kind of surreal. I guess it was the first time I really realized that I have it all -- the most incredible husband, baby family, team, home, thriving business, and clothing line. I am so blessed, I can honestly say there isn't a thing I would change about my life right now!

Rodger reflects on this season, on how Skyler has changed Rachel, and how Skyler should dress.

When it comes to Skyler's wardrobe, Rachel and I have very different opinions on how he should dress. Or how both of us men should dress for that matter! What can I say -- I think I look pretty irresistible in a tank top and a trucker hat.

Seeing Rachel's face when I brought Sky home with his new clothes was priceless. I know she didn't want to admit it, but he looked so cute in his Grateful Dead t-shirt. I want Sky to look like a tough little boy, how is he going to do that in a cashmere onesie?

I can't believe this season is over already! Over the past five years everyone has been able to see Rachel and I evolve in all aspects of our lives. From business to family, it seems our entire world is miles away from where we started. This past season in particular felt very different from the rest. Having a baby has really changed Rachel and I, both separately as well as a couple. Everything has so much more purpose now, more meaning. Even in business, the stakes are raised because we now have someone else depending on us. In addition to all of our work "kids." It’s been such a great ride, I can't wait for everyone to see all of the amazing things Team Zoe has in store!
