Unable to keep a balance between work and home life, J.C. hires a number of nannies. She also enrolls Elizabeth in early development classes since motherhood is soon to take up the majority of her time. When she finds Ken making decisions without her involvement, J.C. tells Fritz she would like him to leave her team. Fritz surprised her by explaining to her that Ken will handle the account and J.C. will be assigned to a client who has less of a profile. This will allow Elizabeth to spend more time with her family and spend more time together. After putting off her promotion, Fritz says that he, too, was forced to decide between his career as well as his family.
Humiliated, J.C. quits, and relocates along with Elizabeth to a farm located in Vermont. When she buys the house without visiting it or having it checked, she finds it is plagued by problems (failing heating and plumbing insufficient water supply, roofing issues). By winter, she is overwhelmed by the increasing amount of repairs required for her new house, running out of money and time, as well as overwhelmed by the loneliness. On the brink of financial ruin and suffering a nervous breakdown She meets with local veterinarian Dr. Jeff Cooper. She initially dislikes Jeff and is determined to stay clear of him. Finding a buyer for the house is almost impossible. She sees an opportunity for “gourmet babyfood applesauce that she has made with fresh ingredients. After an initial rough patch, the business becomes a full-time business called “Country Baby”. When her business grows and orders start pouring into the country, J.C. and Jeff strike up a romance.
Then, Fritz reaches out to J.C. to solicit an invitation from The Food Chain to acquire Country Baby, and she goes back to her old company to meet with Larrabee and her former colleagues. They present the multi-million-dollar agreement to purchase her company and distribute its products nationwide as well as offering her a lucrative salary with the benefit of a Manhattan apartment as well as other advantages. J.C. was ready to accept the offer of Fritz and is certain that she will be able to return to her powerful and distinguished corporate career in New York. J.C. is confident she can build her company on her own without having to sacrifice her relationship with Elizabeth and Jeff. She is happy with her new life as a mom, girlfriend and CEO of her own business and is returning to Vermont to see Jeff and Elizabeth.
