Blessing for a New Mama

  One of my best friends is due with her baby girl in 3 weeks. One of the women in our circle organized a small shower for her, and as part of the shower everyone wrote a blessing for our friend. Here’s mine for her, pulled from so many corners of the last 2 years. […]

The Other Side

I made it back. As I write this, my suitcase has not, but I’m going to remain hopeful, and meanwhile, I’m with my daughter. That is far more important than having my favorite clothes and makeup and hair products and jewelry home with me. The trip was extraordinary. If we’re Instagram friends you know this: […]


I am going away in a few days without Luciana, something I have never done before. This was a hard freaking decision because I’m just that mom that doesn’t like to leave. I’ve never spent one night away from her, and now I’m spending 5 on the other side of the world. (To be fair, […]


Luciana turned two on July 29, and I think I’ve been waiting for that definitive thing to say about this big big year. There’s not one thing; there aren’t one hundred things. As I think back over the last year, and all I’ve witnessed, and all I’ve been privileged enough to be a part of […]


  The 3 of us escaped to Hawaii for July 4th weekend. Though we only had 3 full days there it was one of the most perfect trips we could have imagined.   Luciana is almost 2—at the end of this month she will be. She looks so much like a little girl these days. Her language […]

For Mommies and Moguls

A couple of weeks ago I told you about MyYogaWorks and told you I’d tell you when my special Mama series is up. It’s up, as is another one I’ll do a big reveal of momentarily. These mommy mini-classes might be the teaching that’s nearest and dearest to my heart. It was so so so SO […]

Family Shoot with Caroline Tran

I can’t believe it took us until Luciana was 20 months old to do an official family shoot. We did do that marvelous holiday shoot I love so much, but that was a mini. Mind you we have hundreds, probably thousands at this point, of photos of the babe, but very very few of all of […]

Getting My Practice Back

I had no idea what it was to fall of the yoga wagon. Really really fall off. Yoga has been a huge part of my life since I was in my teens–I couldn’t imagine a week without it, barely a few days, yet once I had Luciana I truly think months went by that I […]

Other People’s Stuff

I have been a bit obsessed about Other People’s Stuff since before having Luciana. I’d say the area that I doubt myself the most as a mother is around Play. I have feared, from the time she was about 3 months and waking up as they do at that age, that I don’t know how […]

Letter to my Toddler

For whatever reason, I struggled with myself over the weekend and Luciana struggled with herself. It’s like we both were feeling itchy in our skins —crankier and more indecisive than usual. Sunday afternoon we all lay down for family nap which has become a weekend ritual. I thought for sure I’d pass out like I […]
