Dental School and Beyond: The Power of Dad

Thank you to Oral-B for sponsoring this post. To learn more about their Power of Dad campaign, please click here. The majority of my marriage and Justin's fatherhood has been spent in dental school, and while it was hectic and stressful a lot of the...


A Lovely Day

I've been really fortunate, in my opinion, that I haven't necessarily had to work for the last five or so years since Zoe was born. Before Justin was accepted into Dental School, I was working as a manager at a boutique and was able to...


Healthy Smile Routines: Life with a Dentist *spon

I am a member of the Collective BiasĀ® Social FabricĀ® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. I've known my husband since he started out on his journey to become a dentist. As...


Living Outside the Box

My husband was a student when I met him seven years ago. He was beginning his science courses at a junior college after completing an undergraduate degree in business at the University of Hawaii. I was living a somewhat aimless existence in San Francisco, floundering...



I can hardly believe that March is almost over. The cold winds and frost bitten mornings have subsided and the streets are now sprinkled with smatterings of white and purple petals. I'm just catching my breath after what has felt like a freight train picked...


On the Horizon

Our home has been filled with more love and chaos than ever before, but we're doing well. All five of us are doing really, really well. It feels so good to say that after there was so much uncertainty brewing just before Beau was born. During...


Hurricane Irene: Blessings in Disguise

A Labor of Love

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. Zoe has finally begun use the potty and is nearly completely out of diapers. It's been a long, messy and frustrating time coming, but I'm so excited to bust out the adorable Hello Kitty panties I bought...


‘Tis the Season for Love

I've fallen again for this city. Spring has officially made it's awesome appearance, and just like *that*, I've forgiven and forgotten the long, brutal winter that I thought would never leave. I began to seriously doubt my capability for living in New York City through...


Road Full of Promise: Two Years

Today marks the second birthday of one of the coolest, most poignant projects of my life. I've been blogging now for two years exactly, and while it feels about right, I'm still in awe at the freedom and joy that documenting our journey to New...


Just Wednesday

Three days a week, I get Zoe all to myself. When we aren't at home playing "babies", we shop, get "coffee", and cruise around the neighborhood when weather allows. This is the first time we've been able to spend time together, being the second child...
