International, Baby

November 9, 2014

Evvie and I got back late last night from a very quick and amazing trip to Toronto. I had been anticipating this trip for a couple of weeks, Justin and I even went to San Francisco to order Evvie a rush passport just so we’d be able to travel together in time. I was fairly […]

One Year with Theo

November 7, 2014

It’s been one year since we brought Theo home. Zoe and I drove to the shelter to collect him, just the two of us. She had been asking incessantly for a puppy for as long as she could verbalize it. The entire 20 minute ride from our house to the vet, she squealed in delight […]

Unexpected Connections

November 3, 2014

It feels like my family’s lives have been through constant and aggressive change for a little over a year now since we moved from New York City to California. The shift from one coast to the other couldn’t have been more extreme in every way, but we had each other throughout the entire process, physically […]

Momma Loves

October 17, 2014

This week seems to only be getting harder with little Beau and his separation emotional turmoil over baby Evvie joining our family, so I’ve been spending as much one-on-one time as I possibly can with him. That means having as many adults in our home as we can get at this point, and I’m just […]

Theo and Beau Welcome Evangeline

September 24, 2014

I’ve been wanting to share with you the day that we brought Evvie home, but it’s been a little raw for me up until recently. That day was so hectic, hardly the kind of serene and sweet “coming home” celebration we had hoped for, but it was lovely all the same. I didn’t get discharged […]

August 14, 2014

So shopping is a thing for me. It’s probably pretty evident that I enjoy looking around for different, wonderful things for my kids and my home. It’s a bit of a creative outlet for me-not the spending part, but the actual searching and finding beautiful and unique things for my children to wear and do […]

A Beautiful Announcement: Theo and Beau Video

May 2, 2014

This is an excerpt of the speech I gave at the Mom 2.0 Summit on May 2nd, 2014. Three months after moving to New York City, my two year old landed us in the emergency room with a severe allergic reaction to pistachios. Without any family, friends or neighbors to call, my husband stayed home […]

A Day in the Life

April 30, 2014

Routines are pretty a pretty crucial part in my parenting methods. I try to create a schedule that is most conducive to everyone in our family as I find that the more predictable the day, the happier the child. The newest member of our family is not quite as dependent on schedule-he’s pretty agreeable no […]

Fridays with Theo and Beau

April 26, 2014

It occurred to me that putting a weekly roundup of my photos of Theo and Beau would serve more than one purpose, rather than having them exclusively on my Instagram feed (I’ve been blogging for almost five years and this only just occurred to me). Each day the amazing community over on Instagram leaves many […]
