Knowing that we would be isolated for Margot’s second birthday and that planning anything would be tough with a due date just two days before she turned two, I started planning early. There wouldn’t be a party, but she’d wake up to a house full of decorations and have a …

I know what you’re thinking. Fall is a time for crock pot dishes and warm, comfort foods. I’m usually so ready for fall by the time it rolls around, and try to pretend that winter isn’t around the corner. I love an extended summer and not-too-cold fall. Salads are simple, …

My baby is ONE! I can’t believe it. We honeymooned in the Amalfi Coast, so as soon as we bought a house with a yard, I knew this had to happen. This party was obviously for us since Margot would have been thrilled with a balloon and a trip to …

Someone recently messaged me. “How do you do it all?” This hustle culture is an absolute nightmare. No one does “it all” – that is not how it works. We have teams, employees, childcare, partners, etc. We order take-out or have groceries delivered. My answer is simple. “I don’t.” But the …
