Take Your Dog to Work Day

It’s a day that’s “gone to the dogs”.

Last week, many of our employees and their dogs participated in Take Your Dog to Work Day. Created by Pet Sitters International, Take Your Dog to Work Day is held annually on the first Friday after Father’s Day. It celebrates companion dogs and encourages adoptions from local shelters, rescue groups and humane societies. It’s also a day to promote the importance of the human-animal bond, and to foster support for neighborhood pet communities.

To help celebrate the occasion, a number of dogs accompanied their pet guardians to work, and posed in photos with some of the newest products from my Martha Stewart Pets line exclusively at PetSmart. Employees also enjoyed using our photo booth made with flowers from Martha Stewart Crafts®.

Here are some photos.

A June Garden Tour at Cantitoe Corners

There is so much growing and blooming at the farm - it's a perfect time for a garden tour.

As many of you know, every now and then, I agree to small, guided walks around my property. The most recent group included members from our neighboring Katonah Elementary School and winners from a Macy's charity raffle. Unfortunately, because of my busy travel and work schedule, I am not always able to lead these tours myself, but they all had a very thorough and enjoyable visit with my head gardener, Ryan McCallister.

Here are some pictures of what they saw - enjoy them.

A Trip to East Hampton and Montauk

My work schedule is very busy, but I always enjoy traveling and attending innovative conferences.

Recently, I was invited to speak at the annual Greycroft Summit in Montauk, New York. Greycroft is a private event for executives and technology entrepreneurs. Its goal is to inspire participants to develop lasting relationships and business partnerships. Attendees include representatives from some of the world’s largest media, retail, and consumer products businesses, as well as many promising start-ups. This year, Greycroft was held at Gurney's Montauk resort and spa.

Before attending Greycroft, I visited my home in East Hampton to check out the gardens and to enjoy a peaceful evening on Long Island. Here are some photos.
