About A Boy

As I write this my almost 4-week-old son is sleeping on the couch next to me. He went from 2 days to 4 weeks in about 10 minutes. I can’t believe how fast it’s going with this one. I want so much to write about our family being 4 and the transition from 1 to […]

Away

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, […]

Two

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 […]

Hawaii

  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 […]

A Good Mother

Every day I ask myself am I a good mother; was I a good mother; was I maybe even a great mother. To be fair, I know I’m a good one. But am I as good as I could be? Am I as good as that woman is. Am I as good as I can be for my daughter […]

Holiday Shoot (Finally!)

It took us 17 months to do our first official family shoot, but we finally did, with the inimitable Max Wanger. I can’t believe it took us that long to get our act together to actually do some, and this was a mini-shoot, but a shoot nonetheless! We have another one scheduled for end of March […]

Take 2

I’m sitting here with so much to clean up. And an audition to work on (yay). And the conflicting desires to have a big glass of wine and do some yoga in the living room in an attempt to feel in shape, which is something I’m wondering if I’ll ever feel again. And while I […]

A Girl’s Guide to Lifting the Clouds

This was kind of an epic weekend for Luciana. Saturday morning we went to a pumpkin patch with her cousins after which Mama took her to a playground where she continued her mastery of the slide.   And wore herself out.   (For those of you following me on Instagram I know you’ve kinda seen these. I […]

ONE

A couple of mornings ago, Luciana woke up at 6:15. I woke up at 6:06 and upon checking the clock, immediately panicked. My daughter has slept past 6am exactly 3 times in the past 6 months, so 6:15 seemed like justifiable cause for alarm. Then I remembered: oh yes. Me and worry. We’re old friends […]

Home

We were here last week. 5 square miles in the Caribbean Ocean and, including us, there were 8 people on the resort. We had Time as a family Time as a couple (oops no couple pics) Time individually with Luciana Time alone It was such a happy week–we haven’t had that much time together the […]
